Conrad Felice Tunnel & Underground ExpertDr. Conrad W. Felice has over 35 years of direct project experience and a demonstrated expertise in providing corporate leadership, program/project management and technical engineering services on bridge, tunnel, dam, pipeline, energy and marine systems and other infrastructure projects. In addition to Dr. Felice’s formal education, he has taken specialized training courses in risk management, construction and program/project management, dispute review boards, construction claims, value engineering, contract administration, GIS, financial analysis and protective construction engineering. Dr. Felice is the senior author or coauthor of numerous papers and presentations including peer-reviewed journal articles and conference papers.

Dr Felice’s has been responsible for and directed projects in excess of $400M. He has led corporate contractual and technical risk management programs and has worked in traditional "design-bid-build" and alternative project delivery systems, such as "design-build and "public private partnerships." His experience includes claim avoidance, mitigation, management, and resolution services on above and below ground engineering and construction projects.

Dr. Felice's specialized technical area of practice is underground and tunnel engineering, structural foundation engineering for long span bridges, geotechnical engineering, and natural multi-hazard analysis. A particular area of specialization is the use of modeling in the design and construction process of engineered systems to optimize the selection of construction alternatives and sequencing to meet performance objectives against an identified level of risk to achieve cost effective, constructible designs.
