As Sasaki’s lead civil engineer, Zach works with built design leaders and interdisciplinary teams to execute, strengthen, and innovate resilient engineering solutions. His portfolio includes some of Sasaki’s most complex site work—from the Chicago Riverwalk to the Wilmington Waterfront Park in Los Angeles.
He integrates civil engineering solutions that are at once sustainable and sensitive to the design intent. Zach’s greatest motivation is to create built work that is both durable and well-loved by the client and users. He continues to refine a vision for further cultivating Sasaki’s civil engineering practice, encouraging a collaborative built work practice, and better integrating resilience and ecology into the firm’s work.
Zach holds a bachelor of civil engineering from Tufts University, and is a registered civil engineer. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Sports Builders Association, and the Boston Society of Civil Engineers.
