Cuong Tran, engineering manager, has earned the Certified Public Infrastructure Inspector (CPII) designation from the American Public Works Association (APWA). The CPII designation is to recognize individuals who have proven their ability to promote quality public infrastructure throughout their community.
Cuong has been with BKF for the past 15 years, providing design support and engineering management for a variety of projects including site development, utility design and relocations, roadway and trail design, signing and striping design, and construction management.
To obtain the CPII designation, candidates must prove their competency in the testing, measurement, and inspection of underground construction such as utility systems, storm sewers, water systems and sanitary sewers; at-grade construction including curb, gutter, paving, sidewalk and driveway approach construction, restoration work, traffic striping, traffic signal installations, construction traffic control devices, erosion and siltation control installations; and structural construction such as bridges, forming systems, reinforcing steel and reinforced concrete structures. Expertise is also proven in project management, documentation and compliance as well as inspections for right-of-way permits, site materials, sewer lines, and paving projects.
The Certified Public Infrastructure Inspector program was launched by APWA to promote quality infrastructure throughout the community by advancing the knowledge and practice of construction inspection to benefit the community and public agencies.
