MEA Profiles: Gregory S. Oman, PE, President, Principal
Gregory Oman is President and Principal Engineer at Menlo Engineering Associates, Inc.
Greg received both a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Master of Environmental Science from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). He joined MEA in 1998 as a technician and his attention to detail and creative design solutions saw him quickly promoted within two years to Project Manager. He received his Professional Engineering license in 2002 and has since provided expert testimony before numerous Municipal Planning and Zoning Boards on an array of development projects.
As President, Greg manages the technical and administrative staff on all day-to-day operations. And, as a Principal Engineer, Greg is expert at overseeing a wide range of site development projects from conceptual planning through engineering design, permit acquisition, and construction administration. Greg is adept at managing multiple projects with a variety of design challenges. Some of his more notable challenging design work includes:
- ePort440, Perth Amboy, NJ: A 1.2 million SF warehouse/office located on a 103-acre Brownfield site in a Redevelopment Zone. Required a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Wave/Velocity Analysis for Arthur Kill. Design challenges included groundwater and soil contamination and subsurface groundwater modeling, as well as a remediation and recovery system design. NJDEP Waterfront Development and Freshwater Wetlands approval were also required for two culvert/road crossings to maximize site development area.
- iPort12, Carteret, NJ: A 1.2 million SF warehouse/office located on a 113-acre parcel that previously contained 3 municipal solid waste landfills in a Redevelopment Zone. Greg's engineering design included traffic signal design/intersection improvements, as well as a sanitary pump station and 1,500 LF of force main. Design challenges included leachate and methane collection systems for groundwater remediation, piles for foundation support, NJDOT and railroad access issues, and NJDEP Waterfront Development and Freshwater Wetlands approvals.
- Christina Seix Academy, Ewing, NJ: This independent, year-round, Pre-K through 8th grade, residential academy serving children with acute economic and social challenges required the preparation of a flood hazard analysis for NJDEP approval, as well as a stormwater design to meet both NJDEP and Delaware and Raritan Canal Commission standards, all under a limited permitting and construction schedule.
- Edison Towne Square, Edison, NJ: An approved 1.4 million SF mixed use entertainment town center design located on the 100-acre former Ford Assembly Plant site in a Redevelopment Zone. The project's challenges included soil and groundwater remediation and building foundation venting design, along with NJDOT intersection improvements, road widening, and new signal designs, as well as NJDEP Flood Hazard Area and Freshwater Wetlands approvals.
- Aviation Plaza, Linden, NJ: Greg's design for this 670,000 SF retail center on a 69-acre former airport site included 2,100 LF of off-site storm drainage, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval, and soil remediation for underground tank removal.
Greg is committed to continuing Menlo Engineering's long history of providing high-quality engineering and design solutions to our client's complex development issues. He looks forward to the growth and continued success of the firm.
