New Professional Engineers at Sayre

Congratulations to Tyson Hasz and Karin Lang on passing the professional engineer (PE) exam! Per the SD Board of Technical Professions, licensure as a professional engineer involves three main components: education, experience and examinations.

To be eligible to apply to take the Principles and Practice of Engineering exam, individuals must have a baccalaureate degree in engineering and four years of engineering experience under the direct supervision of licensed professional engineers. The PE Civil exam is an 8-hour exam with 80 questions to prove competency in an engineering discipline, which requires months of studying and preparation.

Congrats Karin Lang, P.E., and Tyson Hasz, P.E.!

New Vibration Equipment

It's a new year and we have new equipment! Sayre Associates now has remote vibration monitoring enclosures that measure vibration from construction activities. These units can be placed at nearby businesses, houses or areas of concern to continually monitor vibration activity. They are solar-powered and will send vibration readings within minutes to your cell phone, email or text. If you are interested in this or other vibration monitoring services, please contact Doug Hoy. Doug has been "in the field" for over 29 years and is well-qualified to address technical and community concerns that construction projects present. Call him today at (605) 332-7211 if you have questions on your next project!
