“I am honored by the promotion and excited to have such a great team of professionals in the Seattle office," said Nerurkar. "My predecessor, Pat Piermattei, has done a great job navigating the challenges of the past few years. He maintained a healthy office with quality clients. I look forward to providing leadership towards our goals of outstanding customer service and professional, high quality multi-discipline consulting services. We will continue to be successful as we help our clients achieve success.”

His vast experience of structural analysis and design includes airport terminals, educational and medical facilities, commercial and residential buildings.

His expertise covers a broad area of seismic projects consisting of new construction, performance based design, seismic evaluation, analysis and design of seismic rehabilitation, and project management. Nerurkar is responsible for implementing the seismic rehabilitation program of a national retailer whom has been a client of Coffman Engineers for more than 30 years.

Nerurkar is affiliated with the organizations American Institute of Steel Construction, Structural Engineer Association of Washington, and Applied Technology Council. He actively participates as a presenter for the International Council for Shopping Centers. Philanthropy is also important to Nerurkar, as he donates hours of his time to several non-profit organizations, such as Architects without Borders.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
