David first worked as an intern at Power Engineering in 1991. He was impressed with the method used at a project in an air hanger at Moffett Field. Rather than setting up scaffolding to rebuild the trusses, the men rappelled from the ceiling. This innovative approach to construction is what drew him to Power Engineering and continues to inspire him on complex projects today. Whether he is on the job, in the water diving, on the water surfing, or simply riding his bike, David is pushing himself to a new personal best. David is up for just about any adventure, despite a seemingly quiet life with his family in Oakland. David earned his B.S. in Marine Engineering from Massachusetts Maritime Academy, spent four years on active duty as a US Naval Officer, and earned his Master’s degree in Civil Engineering from Stanford University.   

ken_websiteKen started his career with Power in 1980. With a background in diving and other water sports, he had an eagerness to pursue marine related projects. Because of Ken’s strong technical capabilities and hands-on field experience, the complex engineering projects that involved both marine and civil became a natural for the company. Since then, he’s spent his career seeking out projects that require a high level of involvement and complexity. When not at his desk or on a job site, you’re best bet is to look on the slopes at Kirkwood. Ken holds a Civil Engineering degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and is a Registered Civil Engineer in the state of California.   

hilary_tigueWhen looking to make a long-term commitment to a construction-engineering firm, Hilary knew she would have to choose a company with interests as varied as her own and with a culture of putting engineers on jobsites. Power Engineering’s creative approach to construction and interest in complex projects were a perfect match in Hilary’s quest for professional development. She joined the company in 2002. Hilary earned her B.S. in Civil Engineering from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.  

Wayne first worked at Power Engineering as an intern in 2007 and started working full-time in 2008 after graduating with a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. He was attracted to the company’s unique civil and marine project selections and team approach to reaching construction solutions.

Wayne joined the company at a time in which larger-scale, as well as design-build, projects really started to take hold. His first project was the development of a new marina in downtown Stockton in which Power Engineering was the design-builder.  The project was completed on a fast-track schedule and earned an Award of Excellence from The City Planning Commission of Stockton, CA. Wayne’s next big project was no less challenging or interesting. This one was the seismic retrofit and renovation of historic Piers 15 & 17 in San Francisco for the new Exploratorium museum.

In 2018 Stonecipher joined Mik, Lindberg and Tigue as the company’s fourth shareholder and key part of the company’s future.  

Britt Stitt, Consultant, Co-Founder and former CEO of Power Engineering Co., has a lifetime of experience in heavy civil construction. He’s been immersed in every task imaginable within the engineering-construction process as it relates to marine and heavy civil work. Britt worked with the seismic crew on an oil rig during high school, and it was that experience that inspired him to pursue an education in civil engineering. Britt earned a BS in Civil Engineering from Cornell and Columbia, spent 4-years with the United States Naval Construction Battalion, and a Masters in Civil Engineering from Stanford.

Mr. Stitt launched his construction career in 1964 in California serving many roles including surveyor, diver, operator, construction engineer, project manager, financial officer and ultimately CEO of Power until 2004 when he sold his shares to his partners. Power Engineering has continued to count on Britt’s extraordinary knowledge of building in an efficient, safe, and financially sensible way.
