About Mathew

Mathew bolsters the civil engineering department at Abacus with strong credentials in site research and design, water resources management, and civil engineering design technology. He is adept at utilizing Civil 3D AutoCAD, and working at Abacus to integrate new technologies with traditional civil engineering practices to improve efficiency and effectiveness. With primary responsibilities in site design and municipal projects such as subdivision design, Mathew proactively identifies potential site complications and hurdles, and plans ahead so they do not become costly changes later. At Abacus, Mathew relishes the opportunity to be involved in a project from beginning to end and see that his efforts have made a difference. While much of his work may be invisible, Mathew draws satisfaction from looking at the end product and knowing that he has helped all concerned create a project of which they can be proud.

On working with him

“Site design is a part of my concern for the environment. I’m interested in how we make the environment livable for humans and the species in it, while making the world better overall.”

On his favorite project

“I was involved in the new Johnsonville headquarters project, working on the drive entrance. It was satisfying to see that my efforts had an impact and that I was able to implement improvements.”

On his own time

“I enjoy any outdoor activity—snowboarding, downhill skiing, rock climbing, sky diving, horseback riding in the California mountains. I am also a member of the Min-Aqua Bat Waterski Club where I had previously performed slalom skiing and barefoot skiing during the water skiing shows.”

On relational architecture

“It means being able to work directly with clients and understanding what they truly want, but also providing them with new ideas and options based on research, so that the end result makes everyone happy.”
