Hart Crowser, a division of Haley & Aldrich, has promoted geotechnical/seismic engineers Brice Exley and Madan Karkee to principal. Both manage transportation, waterfront and high-rise building projects. Exley is a technical leader for the numerical modeling group. He frequently uses advanced one- and two-dimensional seismic models and large three-dimensional models to help manage design and construction risk while removing design conservatism where appropriate. He was the project manager for geotechnical design for the new 850-foot-tall Rainier Square Tower, now the second tallest building in Seattle; the newly constructed Climate Pledge Arena; and the Port of Seattle Terminal 5 berth upgrades currently under construction. Other projects he's helped deliver include Governor's Island Park and Public Space in New York and Seattle's SR 99 bored tunnel. He has presented at multiple national conferences on deep foundations, numerical modeling and slope stability.
Karkee was geotechnical engineering manager for the new ferry terminal in Mukilteo and the Spaghetti Factory redevelopment in Seattle. His high-rise projects include 800 Columbia in Seattle and the Lincoln Square expansion in Bellevue. He has managed major projects for the Port of Seattle, Washington State Department of Transportation and Sound Transit. He has worked in the U.S., Canada, Japan and Nepal. He has previously been a professor at Akita Prefectural University in Japan, and received the Technology Development Award by the Japan Geotechnical Society. Karkee has been involved in field investigations to assess damage and evaluate performance of structures and foundations following major earthquakes including the 1995 Kobe, 1994 Hokkaido-toho-oki and 1993 Kushiro-oki earthquakes in Japan; and the 2001 Bhuj earthquake in India.
