This Eweek, we hope that you’ll take a moment to recognize and celebrate the work of our DCCM Family of Companies engineers!

Today’s spotlight: David Calabuig, PE (Binkley & Barfield)

1. How has Binkley & Barfield helped you to develop and expand your professional career as an engineer?

Binkley & Barfield has allowed me to progress in my career and to take some risks to win new projects. It’s always exciting to win projects against very large and mega engineering firms.

2. What initially sparked your interest in engineering?

I used to sketch bridges in my German classes when I was bored back in junior high, and it sparked my interest to become a civil engineer. You can see the only signature bridge I was involved with at I didn’t design it, but I was the procurement engineer on the project.

3. What is your favorite type of work to do in the engineering field?

I love helping my clients solve their problems early on by doing conceptual and schematic designs because there is a lot of interaction with the public and different stakeholders to come to an agreeable solution for all parties.

4. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

Fly as fast as superman!
