At previous firms, Mr. Strom has been involved in the design and permitting of residential subdivisions; site plans for commercial, industrial, retail, academic and institutional clients; and multi and single-family residential projects, including Chapter 40B projects. Mr. Strom has regularly presented such projects to Planning Boards, Zoning Boards of Appeals and Conservation Commissions at public hearings, and has established a highly successful track record of obtaining permits by garnering all parties support during the conceptual and design development phases and an attention to detail in final design. Mr. Strom typically supports his projects through construction which involves site inspections, shop drawing reviews, contractor coordination, value engineering, and often entails permit close out and final sign off for occupancy.
Mr. Strom participates in land use and development seminars and civil engineering and land surveying seminars to remain abreast of the current industry standards, regulations, laws and ideas in the fields of engineering and land development. He is adept in numerous civil engineering and surveying software packages including AutoCAD Land Development Desktop and Civil 3D, Carlson Survey, Carlson Civil suite, HydroCAD, HEC-RAS, Leica Geo Office, and Star*Net, and utilizes the latest computer technology in the design process.
Ken enjoys spending his time outside of work on a variety of interests with his family and friends including travel, 4-season camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, and snowshoeing.
