Is the recession ending? According to George Bolton, president of Biscayne Engineering Company, Miami’s oldest surveying and engineering firm, it may be over, and though the damage is creating a weak economy, Biscayne is continuing to prepare for a progressive future. Bolton made his comments while introducing Walter Lugo, the new vice president of Engineering.

“A recession is a lot like war,” stated Bolton. “The shooting stops, the soldiers go home, but there is rubble to clear, infrastructures to rebuild, wounds to heal, and it takes a long time before life returns to normal – if ever.”

Bolton continued, “Things seem to show signs of turning around and we must be ready for it. Biscayne is in a fortunate position that allows us to hire some of the brightest and best professionals available. We recently found two really bright engineers, and they are both on board helping to strengthen our engineering division.”

Bolton added that, “Janette Fernandez Arencibia, who joined us in September, is a very good marketing person besides being an excellent engineer. Walter Lugo, who just joined us, is responsible for streamlining our engineering department into what it needs to be to face the next few years of recovery and new projects. Biscayne has a solid surveying division and now we are concentrating on improving our engineering division. As vice president of engineering, Lugo can do that.”

Lugo is a 1998 graduate of the University of Florida with public and private experience in the civil engineering field, which includes work experience with developers, municipalities, architects, attorneys, and contractors.

Asked how he felt about his new position, Lugo said, “I want people to think of Biscayne Engineering as a full service civil engineering and surveying company. I’m excited about this company because I now have an opportunity to add to the rich history of a firm that has played an instrumental role in the growth of Miami and south Florida for over 100 years.”
