Mr. Templeton provides over 18 years of experience as an engineer managing and leading marine and waterfront projects worldwide. He maintains engineering registrations with multiple states and the United Kingdom’s Engineering Council. Specific areas of practice
include above and underwater inspection, corrosion evaluation and mitigation, cathodic protection, structural rehabilitation, and construction engineering. Additionally, he specializes in the structural assessment and forensic evaluation of contemporary and historic infrastructure. Throughout his career, he has inspected hundreds of structures constructed from structural steel, reinforced concrete, timber, and masonry. He is an expert at recognizing deterioration processes, evaluating the structural significance of
damage/deterioration, and identifying failure mechanisms. He routinely utilizes destructive and non-destructing techniques to evaluate material properties and identify internal defects and discontinuities.
He has worked on various inland, coastal, and offshore structures including buildings, towers, pipelines, piers, wharves, bridges, jacketed platforms, dry docks, and single-point moorings. He spent most his professional career managing federal projects for the U.S.
Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, National Park Service, as well as major port authorities, local municipalities, and the oil and gas industry throughout the United States and abroad. He has successfully executed projects in Japan, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Djibouti, British Indian
Ocean Territory, England, Mexico, Cuba, and the Bahamas.
Mr. Templeton is also a certified commercial diver with over 400 logged working dives. He maintains professional diving certifications recognized in the Unites States and abroad through the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) and Diving
Certification Board of Canada (DCBC). He has experience performing underwater inspections in zero visibility, swift currents, and contaminated environments. In addition, Mr. Templeton is a certified rope access technician with extensive tower climbing experience.
