Professional Experience:

Ron has a long history of providing electrical cost estimating/cost control support, to McKay/Moore's founding partners Bruce McKay and Pat Moore since the early eighties. He has been a licensed professional engineer since 1965. His past experience includes work as an industrial manager for an electrical contracting firm and project engineering for the Weyerhaeuser Company, Tacoma City Light, and the Boeing Company. He has personally been doing electrical estimating for over 30 years in the construction and consulting field. He is competent with both McCormick and ALEC Estimating Systems.

Ron, owner of ANGELINE, a consulting engineering firm specializing in estimating, value engineering, and construction management, points out, "Once upon a time...engineers took jobs for life: 40 years of steady work, then retirement. Today's engineers are more mobile, and the need for their services is more varied. That's where we come in." ANGELINE sends contract professionals on temporary assignment, from two weeks to two years, in the client's office or on a job site. ANGELINE has mechanical, structural, civil and electrical, plus environmental and software engineers, along with architects, estimators, planners, schedulers, construction managers, drafters, CAD operators, and more, including licensed engineers. ANGELINE experience includes both new and renovation work on a wide range of commercial, industrial, and institutional projects with value from $10,000 to $200,000,000.

Ron provided McKay/Moore clients with preliminary electrical costs on the Sound Transit Light Project Proposed Capital Hill Station, detailed costs on a multi-use museum and community exhibition center in Wrangell, AK, and a Communications Integration System Estimate Review for a private-sector client. He has been working on various projects for the General Services Administration, including an estimate of an 80,000 SF warehouse buildout for use as a VA consolidated mail outpatient pharmacy (CMOP), Bellingham Federal Building code upgrade estimate, Nakamura Federal Courthouse budget review, and a new INS facility.

Ron's firm, R. L. Angeline & Associates, LLC (ANGELINE) was established in 1978 to provide quality technical/engineering support services and highly skilled engineering professionals. Ron has worked on Port of Seattle projects for many years He has worked on numerous projects for Metro, SeaTac Airport, Spokane International Airport, LAX and the Boeing Company.

ANGELINE's completed projects include antenna ranges, airport facilities, athletic facilities, correctional facilities, convention centers, courthouses, condominiums, computer centers, laboratories, military installations, museums, office buildings, public utilities, hospitals, hotels, industrial facilities, schools university facilities, warehouses, and waterfront facilities.

Port of Seattle Estimate of Pacific iron & Metal Relocation & Replacement Cost (Harbor Island.)

Many highly trained Construction Managers work at ANGELINE. Most have CM degrees as well as 15 to 40 years' experience as engineers and construction supervisors. CMs ensure owners of the three fundamentals of every project: quality, cost, and schedule. This is essential in low-bid, fixed-price contracts, where change orders in design or construction can create needless delays, cost overruns, and friction between owner and contractor. Ron points out that "on large projects, CM can cost less than 1% of the construction. Considering the things that can go wrong, that's a bargain. Many owners think of CM fees as a kind of insurance premium, protecting their building project against failures of schedule, cost, and quality."

McKay/Moore is pleased to have Ron's firm as an ongoing resource to support our efforts to provide experienced professional cost support to our clients. Ron's expertise in electrical engineering/estimating in particular will strengthen our ability to offer strong cost control services for all disciplines of a construction project.

    Professional Qualifications:
    John Langer has more than thirty-two years of professional experience with an emphasis on engineering, estimating and project management. He most recently provided McKay/Moore with an estimate of plumbing and other mechanical costs on the Nolan Center, a community center and museum in Wrangell, AK.

    For most of his career, John has been involved with the mechanical, process equipment, and electrical portions of projects, from estimating and planning through managing the construction phase to startup and commissioning. John has been a self-employed Construction Consultant since December 1991. As such, he provides continuing project management, estimating and scheduling services to several small contracting and A/E firms in the Western United States. He has also been retained by a large aerospace firm to manage change order negotiations for a $2.6 billion expansion program and has provided cost estimating services to the State of Washington, Department of Capitol Facilities to prepare earthquake assessment costs for submission to FEMA for damages to the Capitol Campus.

    John has also performed change order cost estimating work for Sound Transit for the elevated portion from Boeing Access Road to Tukwila and the Airport Station for Link Light Rail. In 2010, he will also be providing change order costing for the Sound Transit Sounder Expansion between D and M Streets in Tacoma.

    As a project and construction manager, he has had extensive experience working on facility renovation projects, including offshore production facilities from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. He has completed renovation work for the US Navy in the Caribbean and at Bremerton, Washington and has also been involved with the planning, cost estimating and project management for facility renovations for several school districts and private industry. Most of these projects had intensive mechanical, process and electrical systems as a key part of the renovations.

    John is familiar with the LEEDS program and has been involved with waste reduction programs while a project manager with Lease Crutcher Lewis and Bechtel Corporation. Because his function on a project typically begins after design has been completed, his focus has been on recycling jobsite materials and segregating waste products to maximize recycling and/or reuse. Recently, he completed the mechanical cost estimate for the National Fisheries Laboratory renovation in Hawaii and was on the evaluation team for alternative and sustainable methods for cooling and irrigating the facility. He attended the University of Washington, majoring in Civil Engineering; he also later received a certificate of completion from the Executive Management Program (1989-1990) at the University of Washington. He has completed Value Engineering training modules I & II and is working on his CVS certification from the Society of Value Engineers of which he is a member and chapter officer. He is currently a member of the PMI (Project Management Institute) and an advisory board member of the Project Management Masters Program at City U. He has also instructed classes in principles of Project Management to numerous entities including the FAA.

    John worked with McKay/Moore on both Design Development and Construction Documents phases of the Skagit Valley Kidney Center project. As well, he prepared the mechanical portions of McKay/Moore's CD estimate for the Nolan Center (visitor center and museum) in Wrangell, Alaska. He has worked with us on several projects for the GSA. He was mechanical estimator for McKay/Moore’s work on a GSA project for a proposed build-out of 80,000 SF of existing warehouse space for a VA Consolidated Mail Order Pharmacy. He also worked on the GSA’s Nakamura Courthouse and Bellingham Federal Courthouse and Coeur d'Alene Federal Courthouse projects, all of which considered LEED points/requirements, as well as on a proposed new INS facility, and various tenant improvement projects.

    Over the last year, John has provided several estimates for housing projects. E.g.: Solid Ground's Sand Point Housing Community Center, Common Ground's Davis Freeman Apartment Rehabilitation on Vashon, Rainier Vista Mixed-Use building, a 9000 SF project for the Multi-Service Center in Federal Way, and Seattle Housing Authority's Rainier Vista Phase II - Block 27, all for Tonkin/Hoyne/Lokan Architects. .
