Anthony Curiale, Plumbing Engineering Expert
Location: New York City, New York
I’ve worked on some pretty challenging and high-profile projects over the years, including the High Line and the National September 11 Memorial Pavilion in New York, and even the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. I currently am tasked with providing engineering and design for a new world headquarters for LG Electronics and a $400-million Resorts World Casino expansion. Tetra Tech and Cosentini have a reputation for delivering state-of-the-art solutions for their clients; right up my alley!
For Tetra Tech’s Anthony Curiale, starting from scratch when designing process utilities is what makes his job so exciting. He takes a blank slate and designs a system that is cost-effective, efficient, and meets his clients’ needs.
As a leader in plumbing engineering and a recent inductee of the ASPE Kenneth G. Wentick College of Fellows, Anthony relishes the expansion of technology and how it has changed over his 45-year career. In an article for the ASPEJournal, Anthony wrote, “Technology improvements, conservation measures, and public health concerns have reached a crossroads in the current era to allow us some pretty challenging projects and design opportunities. When the unique ones come along, it is worthwhile to relish every minute, lay aside the pressures of schedule and budget, and just create!”
Excelling as a draftsman in the marine engineering industry early in his career, Anthony quickly made his way into the power, petroleum and petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries, ultimately ending up with a plumbing design title. Anthony, who holds plumbing design and LEED AP certifications, is a senior associate at Cosentini Associates, A Tetra Tech Company, in New York City. He is responsible for components of the engineering for several high-rise buildings and mixed-used facilities.
In his article for ASPEJournal, Anthony offered a unique insight into the plumbing engineering field, detailing the innovative and creative processes used while designing process utility piping. He also addressed the different challenges he encountered when designing utility piping for a 225,000-square-foot research and development center in New York.
