Chris Burgess attended the Stevens Institute of Technology, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in May of 2009. Chris’ participation in the cooperative education program allowed him to explore several job opportunities in the broad field of Mechanical Engineering. At EP Engineering, his final internship, he found a career that took advantage of his creativity and problem solving ability. With no two projects being the same, Chris discovered the combination of analytical thinking and design that originally sparked his interest in engineering. In addition to balancing schoolwork and internships, Chris played 4 seasons for the Varsity Baseball team at Stevens. His aptitude for multitasking helped him to remain on the Dean’s List every semester and graduate with honors.

Since starting at EP Engineering, Chris has had the opportunity to work on and manage a wide variety of projects, from high rise residential developments to energy audits for commercial office buildings. Regardless of the project, he strives to find creative solutions that meet the client’s needs and adhere to the architect’s design. Chris has continued to advance his career at EP Engineering, becoming a partner with the firm in 2016.

Outside of work, Chris enjoys spending time with family and friends and continues to play baseball competitively in the summer and fall. He is also dedicated to advancing his professional licensure and furthering his education in energy efficient design practices.

A firm believer in leading by inspiration and example, Chris strives to raise his team to the highest level. Throughout his nearly 20 years of electrical engineering experience, he has directly mentored many young electrical engineers who went on to have highly successful careers in electrical engineering. He continues to work hand in glove as the Electrical Team Leader within the firm, while also serving as the primary liaison for many of EP Engineering’s clients. Chris has successfully managed a variety of projects since beginning his tenure at EP Engineering in 2013. From ground-up high rise residential in Manhattan and multi-floor commercial office fit-outs, to a major retail white-box rollout at Roosevelt Islands Main Street, Chris has a wealth of project experience that he leverages with each new endeavor.
