David Tinder, PE
“Throughout my career in the public and private sectors, I’ve known the leadership of BCC for 17 years. I have as much respect for their engineering work as they have for our experience in CEI over the years, so it is extremely exciting for us to join forces as one company to collaborate and conquer bigger and better challenges.”
Mr. Tinder has over 24 years of extensive experience in the Transportation Engineering Industry. He completed the 4-year PE Trainee Program at the FDOT, managed a $1B work program with MDC DTPW, and managed complex D-B construction projects as a consultant CEI SPE. His significant experience has exposed him to every element of the FDOT process and county governmental procedures, as well as set the foundation for his ability to successfully manage major construction projects with unique aspects on the design and construction side. His projects have ranged from complex bascule bridge construction to highly sensitive urban reconstruction projects.
For the last 12 years, he has focused on 3 phases of the complex and high-profile SR 9/I-95 Express Lanes D-B projects. David took on the first Express Lane (EL) project in Florida, I-95 EL Phase 1 Design-Build-Finance ($121M), resulting in SASHTO’s Regional Award in the 2009 America’s Transportation Awards Competition, as well as the FTBA’s Best in Construction Award in the D-B Category for 2010. Due to the successes of David’s team on phase 1, NME was awarded the next two phases of the project, extending up to Commercial Boulevard in Broward County.
David’s extensive experience with complex D-B projects sets him apart from other SPEs in South Florida. These Express Lane projects included complex MOT, Category 1 & 2 bridge widenings, drainage, earthwork, MSE walls, ITS, toll buildings and gantries, concrete pavement, and many other elements. His understanding of the design elements, coordination of all interested parties, and managing the project from inception to completion provides true value to any project.
