David Bernhardt, P.E.

President, CEO

Fun Fact: “Mr. I’d Rather be Fishing,” David is known as the world’s okayest boss and secretly wishes he could mow lawns as a full time job.

David’s structural engineering expertise is as broad and varied as the many offerings of Providence. With experience in most contemporary building materials, current building and material codes and having successfully designed many projects of various building types, David is always eager to explore how we can help on the next project that Providence has an opportunity to be part of. In addition to engineering design, David shares his time with high school and college students that are interested in structural engineering as well as volunteering on local Boards.
