Jared is GeoStabilization’s Southeast and South Central Regional Operations Manager. Although Jared “officially” has over 10 years of recent experience in the construction industry, he actually grew up working for a family-owned grading and drainage company in the Eastern Carolinas. After earning a B.S. in civil engineering from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Jared started work as a field engineer for a large geotechnical construction company where he gained first-hand knowledge in the many aspects of design-build geotechnical construction. Jared soon was quickly promoted into a Superintendent position before joining GeoStabilization where he has managed projects across the eastern United States ranging from multi-million dollar GeoSynthetically Confined Soil (GCS®) walls to small shoulder repair soil nail/shotcrete installations. In his spare time, Jared enjoys hunting and competitive deep-sea fishing.
When a portion of Sunset Road on Vashon Island in King County experienced a landslide with previous surficial erosion issues, GeoStabilization International ® provided a design/build/warranty solution. To restore the approximately 70-foot length of damaged road, GSI installed an array of SuperNails ™ to stabilize the slope and faced it with galvanized high-strength mesh.
