Jeff Johnson, P.E., RCDD
Jeff has always been interested in learning how things work and why. From a farming background, he has experience with hands-on situations requiring outside-the-box thinking and using practical methods to get things done. Jeff spent several years in the Marine Corps serving our country and gaining valuable experience as a leader who effectively overcomes challenges. Later, he received an electrical engineering degree from the University of Nebraska—Lincoln. He has since worked his way up to an associate principal role at Alvine Engineering and leader of the firm’s Lincoln office.
Jeff recognizes that there is always room for improvement. This mentality pushes him to continue innovating and encouraging his teammates to do the same. Helping others achieve success is something Jeff enjoys on many levels, including the projects he takes on. For example, the design of a new construction and technology center on a state college campus, effectively incorporating both construction trades workshops and classroom environments. He has also used this experience on projects such as the University of Nebraska—Lincoln College of Engineering.
Jeff would like to see the industry continue to take steps to increase energy efficiency within buildings, especially older buildings like the Nebraska State Capitol HVAC Replacement project. By using state-of-the-art tools for energy modeling, design teams help buildings reduce their carbon footprint and keep occupants comfortable at the same time. With Jeff’s leadership and support, the Lincoln office continues to provide quality engineering systems and innovative solutions, not only for the Lincoln area, but greater-Nebraska.
