Spotlight: Lars Frost, PE, CPD
We are proud of our dedicated team of unique and talented employees. This month’s employee spotlight is one of our Mechanical Engineers, Lars Frost. Enjoy!!
- How long have you been in the A/E industry? 7 (Since September 2008)
- Why or what influenced you to get into this industry?JOB DURABILITY – regardless of economy, there is always a need for heating, air conditioning, and ventilation
- PROFESSIONALISM – holding a state license has an appeal
- FAMILY HISTORY – one of my grandfathers worked for Grumman as an electrical engineer for many years & my other grandfather was a home building contractor – I think that mechanical consulting engineering is a sort of in-between averaging of the two
- Tell us something we would be surprised to learn about you. When I was about 7 years old I performed Swedish folk dancing for the King of Sweden at South Street Seaport, Manhattan, NYC.
In spring 2008, I performed a martial arts demonstration in the Third World Butoku Sai at Honbu, Kyoto, Japan for Dai Nippon Butoku Kai as a
student of Sensei Tesshin Hamada.
