Fresh out of college in 1987, Steve Miller began his engineering career working as a civilian employee for the US Navy. During those first few years, he gained valuable marine and municipal experience working first as a Naval Architect at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard and later as a civil/structural engineer designing public works type projects at the Norfolk Naval Base.
Since leaving public service, Steve has spent much of his career splitting time between a perfect mix of engineering design and inspection projects. As a designer, he has been responsible for the design of over one hundred bridges including the longest three-span timber arch type bridge in the nation, and the longest single-span fiber reinforced polymer slab bridge constructed in the United States.
On the other side of the coin, as an inspection program manager, Steve has been responsible for the inspection of hundreds of structures and has been responsible for the oversight of the local bridge inspection programs in several communities, large and small.
As an NHI Certified Instructor, he regularly teaches and develops instructional materials for bridge inspection related courses. Past courses taught or developed include Fracture Critical Inspection Techniques for Steel Bridges, Bridge Maintenance, Bridge Inspection Non-Destructive Evaluation, and Bridge Welding.
Steve is the Assistant Regional Manager of Collins’ Green Bay and Escanaba offices. Previously, he was the Regional Manager of Collins’ Milwaukee office. He is also a past executive subcommittee member of ACEC-WI’s Transportation Committee.
