Meeok Kim has more than a decade of experience in geostructural engineering, specializing in the analysis and design of complex below-grade systems. Her design credits include a variety of deep and unique foundations and support-of-excavation and shoring systems for challenging soil and site conditions ranging from soft clay to decomposed rock. She works with project teams to produce efficient, cost-effective and innovative designs for whole systems, including sub- and superstructures. Meeok’s projects often require out-of-the-box approaches. Her value engineering strategy for the design of support-of-excavation systems for the Clinton CSO (combined sewer overflow) Storage Facility in Syracuse, New York, resulted in a cost- and time-effective solution for the construction of temporary and permanent underground structures. Meeok also designed an elliptical cofferdam for the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority’s deep pump station in Dorchester, Massachusetts, using a slurry wall.
Ph.D., Civil Engineering, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
