Mr. Morris first entered the construction industry while in High School. He worked for a contractor doing wood framing and tile work during his summer breaks. During the school year he would work weekends laminating Formica onto tables and benches for restaurants. He became interested more in the design of these items and decided to enter the Engineering field. During his last two years in High School, Mr. Morris entered the Building Trades vocational school curriculum and supplemented that with taking drafting courses. During his senior year in high school he also enrolled into the Civil Engineering Technology curriculum at the local community college. Knowing this was the career for him, Mr. Morris transferred to the New Jersey Institute of Technology and completed his B.S. degree in Civil Engineering.
After graduation in 1984, Mr. Morris started working at a local New Jersey firm as a junior designer culminating into a Senior Project Manager in 2000 before relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada. Between the New Jersey and Nevada offices, Mr. Morris has worked on projects in at least 8 other states.
Mr. Morris became a principal with Lochsa Engineering in 2008, where he has been working since 2002, and has witnessed the office expand into other areas of the world such as the Middle East and Southeast Asia. He has been the Engineer of Record for numerous projects such as schools, residential, high-rise, commercial, shopping centers, amusement parks, infrastructure, water and wastewater treatment facilities, hotels, casinos, parking garages, retail, churches and convention centers.
