Brierley Associates Welcomes Ike Isaacson

Milwaukee and Chicago Offices Open

Brierley Associates announces the expansion of our Mid-west and tunneling operations to complement our existing Minneapolis, MN office and national tunnel sector practice.  We are pleased to introduce the opening of our new Milwaukee and Chicago office locations and the addition of Mr. Jon (Ike) Isaacson, GE, CEG, PE, PG who will manage both locations.  Mr. Isaacson has more than 16-years’ domestic and international experience as an Engineering Geologist and Tunnel Engineer.

Ike earned his BS and MS Degrees in Geological Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla (Missouri School of Mines), where he focused on Geologic Investigation/Interpretation, Karst Systems, and Underground Engineering, which melded well with weekends spent exploring and mapping karst and cave systems in the Midwest.  He also completed a BS in Economics during his time at Rolla.  After his time at Rolla, Ike earned a Masters of Engineering in Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT, specializing in Geotechnics.

Mr. Isaacson brings broad interdisciplinary expertise and experience to Brierley gained through his varied past roles as a consultant, owner’s representative, and tunnel contractor.  He has been responsible for the planning and execution of numerous land and off-shore geotechnical investigations, field reconnaissance/mapping programs in remote areas, and site characterizations for numerous tunnels and dams.

President and CEO, Dr. A.J. McGinn notes:  “Adding Ike’s technical skill sets, industry experience and contacts, energy and enthusiasm for the work we do and for living life to its fullest is a huge new asset and opportunity for Brierley Associates.  Our paths have intertwined since his days at MIT working for the same geotechnical consultancy there.  We have admired his accomplishments since then and are now extremely happy and proud to have him as the newest member of the Brierley family.”
