  • Brian Leshko, P.E.Vice President and Program Leader for Bridges and Structures Inspection, Management and Operations

    Brian Leshko is a vice president and HDR's bridges and structures inspection, management and operations program leader. Like most of our bridge inspection team, Brian has extensive experience developing bridge plans and specifications. He has worked on geometry, steel and concrete superstructures, piers, abutments, foundations, retaining walls and sheet piling tieback walls for everything from pedestrian bridges to interstate highway structures. Brian uses his knowledge of structural design and analysis to provide clients a sound and thorough evaluation when conducting bridge and other structural inspections. He is a Certified Bridge Safety Inspector and former SPRAT-Certified Level I Rope Access Technician with extensive industrial rope access and structure climbing experience. Brian's portfolio includes field inspections of large and complex structures—such as boat locks, spillways, culverts, weirs, pump stations, tunnels, plate girder, arch, suspension, segmental concrete and various truss bridges—as well as bridge analysis and load ratings (by working stress and load factor methods), cost estimates, construction consultation and rehabilitation designs.
