George Eisenberger AIA LEED AP is the guy. Every firm needs a guy, and George is OUR guy. Need a person to build a building? George is the guy. Need a person to build a bridge or tunnel? George is the guy. Need a guy to repair Union Station? He’s just the guy. He’s the guy who can get anything done. With nearly four decades of experience, his knowledge of design and construction management techniques, George knows how to design and construct highly technical, complicated projects, both large and small, public and private.
So, logically, we made him the Office Guy. For us, he’s the guy who leads our technical compliance and quality assurance program for the firm. In this capacity, he’s the guy who also oversees the firm’s Risk Avoidance policies. George is very knowledgeable of building technology and project management protocols and is a skilled author of the firm’s specifications for most projects. We all sleep better at night because of George. Clients, too.
His public work is very impressive and has focused on airports and airport infrastructure. Not only is he leading our effort on the MWAA Task Order contract, George’s experience includes the renovation of the historic Hangar 110 complex at Patuxent River NAS, Md.; the Regional Training Institute for the DC Army National Guard at Fort Belvoir, Va.; and the IRS Computer Facility in Martinsburg, Va. And today, George is heading up our position as Architect of Record at iconic Union Station in Washington, DC.
His private work is equally impressive; having overseen the construction document production of our recently completed Eilan, the one million square-foot mixed-use development and multibuilding complex in San Antonio, Texas. And if that’s not impressive enough, George is currently Principal in Charge of the renovation of James Gamble Rogers’ historic Mullins Complex, the 350-bed residence hall at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
George grew up in the Bronx “back when it really meant something,” as George would put it. After graduating from some local universities (wink, wink), George worked for large international firms in New York and slowly migrated down to the Washington region well over 30 years ago. George was an Owner and Principal at Still & Svitchan Associates in Washington, DC, where he directed the firm’s projects, specifically in the public sector. And of course, as you would expect, George likes country music (huh?). In all honesty, on weekends, if you look carefully, you can find George driving around in his fancy car (just ask him) with the windows down, the wind blowing through his hair, daydreaming about James Bond and listening to Taylor Swift. We know it all sounds odd but that’s why he is our guy.
George sees a tree and wonders how many change orders it took to get it right.
