Bruce Richardson joined The Di Salvo Engineering Group in 1985 as a Project Engineer, was named a Principal in 1995, and became President of the firm in 2004. Bruce has experience in the public and private sectors including the design of new construction and the investigation, evaluation, and renovation of commercial, industrial, municipal and educational buildings, parking garages and related facility structures.
