Two new members have been named to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers. Dylan Albergo, PE, and Scott Drury, PE, were appointed by Gov. Rick Scott.
Dylan Albergo, who succeeds Roland Dove on the Board, is an engineer at Wantman Group Inc., a national consulting firm providing a comprehensive range of infrastructure services. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Florida State University in 2011, and a master’s degree in structural engineering from the University of Florida in 2012.
Mr. Albergo contributes to a wide range of complex infrastructure projects at WGI while working closely with project engineers to ensure all project components are complete, accurate, and in accordance with good engineering practice. His main responsibilities include providing structural analysis and design for prestressed concrete beam bridges, steel box/plate girder bridges, and miscellaneous structures. Based in Tampa, Mr. Albergo enjoys boating, fishing, and spending time with his wife, Grace.
Mr. Albergo said, “I am blessed to have the privilege of representing and serving the engineering community as a member on the Florida Board of Professional Engineers.”
Scott Drury, who succeeds Warren Hahn, has over 15 years of experience in the field of engineering, since graduating from Auburn University with a B.S. in mechanical engineering in 2002. Mr. Drury joined H2Engineering in 2007 and later became a senior associate owner in 2016. His initiative, attention to detail, and affinity for solving technical problems made him a natural fit to quickly become the firm’s leader of the commissioning department. In addition to being a licensed Professional Engineer in both mechanical and fire protection engineering, Mr. Drury is also a commissioning authority, certified firestop inspector, and LEED accredited professional.
Prior to joining H2Engineering, Mr. Drury served as a mechanical engineering intern at Engineering Ministries International, a non-profit organization that provides free architectural and design services for ministries in third-world countries. In 2003, Mr. Drury became an application engineer for Motion Reality Inc. in Marietta, Ga., where he developed, tested, and commissioned motion-capture technology systems and managed the installation processes world-wide.
His personal experience spans a variety of both design and commissioning projects for institutional, commercial, educational, and medical clients. These projects include both large- and small-scale projects, new construction, additions, renovations, and historic preservation. His experience also includes the design and testing of complex mechanical and fire protection systems (including smoke control systems).
Outside the office, Mr. Drury is an accomplished songwriter who enjoys volunteering at his church and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
“I am very honored to have the opportunity to serve the people of Florida as the mechanical engineering representative on the Florida Board of Professional Engineers,” Mr. Drury said. “I firmly believe in the purpose and responsibility of professional engineers — ‘to safeguard the life, health, property, and welfare of the public by promoting proper conduct in the practice of engineering and due care and regard for acceptable engineering principles’ — and I am excited to help fulfill this purpose and to improve the engineering profession as a member of FBPE.”
Terms for both Mr. Albergo and Mr. Drury run through Oct. 31, 2021.
