RALEIGH, N.C. –Summit Design and Engineering Services’ Structural Engineering Branch Manager, Chris Berg, PE presented to a crowd of over 100 attendees at the Structural Engineers Association (SEA) of North Carolina’s 6th Annual Conference on Thursday, October 10, 2014 in downtown Raleigh. Structural engineers and SEA members from all across North Carolina attended this presentation and conference.

Berg’s presentation, “Design and Construction of the Nature Research Center,” was in fact held in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences' Nature Research Center (NRC). He discussed his role in the Green Square Complex project, which showcases green technology used in a modern, fiscally-realistic redevelopment. The Green Square Complex includes: the five-story North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources building; 25,000-square-foot State Employees Credit Union tower; 11-story, 325,000-square-foot Department of Administration parking deck; and 80,000-square-foot NRC.


At the time of this project, Berg performed as a structural engineer for GKC Associates of Durham. In June 2014, Summit acquired GKC Associates, adding structural engineering to our breadth of service offerings. Berg now heads all of Summit’s structural engineering efforts.

Summit is currently seeking senior- and junior-level structural engineers to work with Berg and support our Structural Engineering branch. Please visit our Careers page view our current openings.
