John Egan, PE, GE

John Egan is an expert at geotechnical and earthquake engineering studies for new and existing buildings, harbor and waterfront facilities, offshore structures, pipelines, power plants, dams, and other civil works. His career has spanned geotechnical and foundation design studies, characterization of site-specific design ground motions using probabilistic and deterministic approaches, and assessments of earthquake-related geotechnical and geologic hazards. His project experience is geographically diverse and encompasses locations in many regions of the United States and worldwide.

Mr. Egan has served since 2000 on the California State University (CSU) Seismic Review Board, providing expertise on geotechnical, geohazards, and earthquake ground motion aspects of CSU projects. He also is the geotechnical member of the University of California, San Francisco, Seismic Review Committee (SRC). Mr. Egan served from 2007 to 2015 as the geotechnical member of Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) Hospital Building Safety Board (HBSB) and was the Board’s Chairperson in 2013 and 2014. In early 2016, Mr. Egan was appointed as the geotechnical member of the Advisory Committee on Structural Safety of Department of Veterans Affairs Facilities and served until 2019. He is a member of the SEAONC committee that was requested by the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection (SFDBI) to advise them on updating and improving SFDBI’s administrative bulletin AB-082 and was chair of the geotechnical subgroup.
