GRI is very excited to announce that Thomas (Tom) Gayne, a staff engineer for the GRI Vancouver office, passed the Oregon-specific Principals and Practice of Engineering exam in the fall of 2016 and can now add the initials PE after his name!

Tom joined GRI in 2013 with a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering from Portland State University.  He is now a registered professional engineer with the state of Oregon.  Tom has experience that includes foundation design for bridges and waterfront structures, slope stability evaluations, and infiltration testing.  He has assisted public agencies and private clients with projects involving municipal buildings and maintenance facilities, pavement design, stormwater facilities and slope stability.  As a staff engineer, he works under the close direction of a project engineer or principal and is responsible for completing subsurface explorations, providing construction observation services, laboratory testing of soil and rock, and engineering analyses for a variety of projects.

Outside the office, Tom enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children, attending sporting events with friends, and travel.
