This past week, we welcomed David Potempa to our Chicago office. David joins R.M. Chin with a background in civil engineering and will serve as a Field Inspector/Assistant Project Manager. Serving as a subconsultant to Primera Engineers, David will begin working on the IDOT Construction Inspection of Various Maintenance Contracts Construction Engineering Projects, Various Routes, Various Counties, Region 1/District 1. He will be responsible for reporting damaged guard rails, high tension cable fences or chain link fences.

Prior to joining our team, David assisted with inspecting and testing construction site material such as concrete, soils, and compaction. He also helped with soil investigations to determine the presence of contamination and the remediation of what was found. Along with field work , he wrote reports of the team’s findings.

David is looking forward to growing his project management skill set on the construction side; something he has wanted to pursue since graduating from UIC in 2017.

Outside of work, David is an avid baseball fan and a die-hard Chicago White Sox fan. However, when baseball is off season, hockey and the Chicago Blackhawks are his go-to. David is also a very active member in his hometown church in Orland Park. He assists the youth ministry program and enjoys chaperoning the events planned, especially the summer mission trip to Kentucky. This June marks his 10th consecutive year participating in the Kentucky trip.

We’re excited to have you as part of our team, David!
