Matti Sokoll


How did NMSU prepare you:
NMSU taught me how to think outside of the box, ask the rights questions, solve technically challenging problems, when to step back and assess my solution, and lastly, how to be a proud Aggie!
Use your time in school to make mistakes, ask questions, learn as much as possible, and don’t forget to enjoy life!

Responsibilites and Success:
My main responsibilities include interpreting construction drawings, completing submittal document assessments, creating/reviewing RFIs, reviewing ASIs, scheduling subcontractors, sequencing work, and BIM coordination. I also use critical thinking skills to provide unique solutions to deal with and potentially mitigate change order issues as they arise. In addition, I am responsible for detailed cost estimates/quantity take-offs. As well, I implement on-site quality control checks, perform surveying tasks to ensure elevation requirements are met, aide in construction layout and control, ensure on-site safety, and perform engineering calculations when required for problem solving. I continually monitor and maintain the project budget, I am the primary point of contact and problem solver for all issues that arise on-site, and I perform activity identification/sequencing to ensure efficiency of the project and critical paths. My career accomplishments include taking on multiple professional internships during my undergraduate degree, earning my Masters through the Civil Engineering department at UNM, obtaining a sought-after position as a Project Engineer with Bradbury Stamm Construction who is the largest general contractor in the state of New Mexico, passing the FE, and applying for and being accepted into the Engineer in Training by the State of New Mexico which is the first step to achieving my goal to become a Licensed Professional Engineer.
