Bart A. Sullivan, P.E.

New York Office: 212.246.9800

Mr. Sullivan, a principal in our New York office, has managed the design and construction of numerous high-rise residential and commercial buildings throughout the world. Over the past 20 years, the majority of his experience has focused on complex structures from stadiums and museums to ultra-slender high-rises. Bart has been heavily involved in state-of-the-art, performance-based building design techniques for a number of projects located in severe seismic zones and has an expansive knowledge of tall building behavior in high wind environments. His project experience extends out from New York to Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

“I am always searching for “innovative simplicity” in my design work – searching for ways to make the complex simple.”
