Jeff Scarpelli has joined PROSOCO as the products engineer for the company’s anchoring systems and accessories. He brings nearly a decade of experience in the architectural and structural engineering industry to the role.
After graduating from the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Master of Science program, Scarpelli spent the last seven years working for Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates as a building enclosure consultant in their architecture group. He is also the founder of UAS Inspect, a freelance remote sUAS (drone) inspection company.
From his home base of Bloomingdale, Ill., Scarpelli will provide PROSOCO customers with technical and engineering support on façade stabilization projects and help develop and maintain PROSOCO’s extensive line of anchoring products. In addition, he’ll provide service to PROSOCO dealers, contractors and design professionals who rehabilitate, restore and renovate masonry, stone and concrete building structures as well as build new masonry buildings.
Scarpelli will work primarily with Brian Barnes, the business unit leader of PROSOCO’s anchoring systems group, and under the mentorship of Steve Getz, the technical director for PROSOCO, who engineered most of the products in the PROSOCO anchoring systems group.
“One look at Jeff’s resume will tell you why we are so excited to have him join our team as a products engineer,” says Barnes. “In a short period of time, he’s earned a glowing reputation as an innovative problem-solver on façade stabilization projects all across the country. And on a personal level, he’s just a great young man. We’re very lucky to have his talents on the PROSOCO team where I’m confident he’ll bring an incalculable value to project teams across the U.S. and Canada.”
An active member of the Building Enclosure Council – Chicago (BEC), Scarpelli has specialized in the areas of façade assessment; repair and rehabilitation; roofing and waterproofing; stone testing; structural evaluation; and testing and instrumentation.
Some of his notable projects include the Wyoming State Capitol, Chase tower of Houston, Miami Dade County Courthouse, SC Johnson Wax, National Air and Space Museum and the Salt Lake Temple.
