Growing up, Raniel enjoyed playing with LEGOs because he loved being creative and building things. As he got older, Raniel realized engineering would allow him to do just that, at a larger scale, all while helping people in his community. While at SFO, he has been assigned projects such as replacing two 3,000-ton chillers as well as a major upgrade to all utility meters and consolidation of multiple building management systems across the airport. Raniel has been a part of a 2-person team to create, develop, and implement SFO’s $76 million Energy Management Control System project and co-developed planning, design, and construction aspects to upgrade, integrate and standardize gas, water, electricity, and building management systems across SFO’s 100+ buildings into a single system.
Fun Fact: Raniel is an active volunteer at Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps build homes for low income families in his community.
