Clapsaddle-Garber Associates, Inc. (CGA) is pleased to announce three team members have recently achieved professional certifications. Zeb Stanbrough and Luke Wilson have passed the Iowa exam to become Professional Engineers (PE), and Kasey Westley has passed the Iowa exam to become a Land Surveyor Intern (LSI), the first official step toward becoming a Professional Land Surveyor.
Stanbrough has been an Engineer Intern (EI) and Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) with the firm since 2017; he was employed by Ryken Engineering prior to the CGA/Ryken merger and began his career with them in 2008. He attained his PLS certification in 2010 but was also eager to learn the engineering side of the business with the end goal of obtaining his PE licensure.
Wilson has been an EI with CGA since he graduated from Iowa State University in 2015 with his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. Throughout his five years as an EI, he has spent time working closely with the firm’s engineering team on design and construction administration projects. This licensure will now allow him higher levels of authority and responsibility.
Westley has been a Civil Engineering Tech with CGA since 2016 and has numerous years of survey experience when also considering her years with Shoff Engineering prior to the Shoff/CGA merger. As an LSI, Westley will receive additional experience working alongside Professional Land Surveyors at CGA. Upon completing this experience, she will be eligible to take the PLS exam.
