Mark Padula Celebrates 30 Years as a Chester County Civil Engineer
As I sit here today, I find myself reflecting back on my engineering career. It all began 30 years ago, on Tuesday, June 1, 1993.
It was the Tuesday after Memorial Day, and Joe Viscuso, owner of Brandywine Valley Engineers, gave me my first job. Joe told me point blank that I did not know sh*t from shinola and that he got to pay me to learn this business.
I started working when I was 12 years old, and my mentality from the start was never to let my employer regret hiring me or giving me a raise. For exactly eight years, I made a conscious effort to ensure that Joe did not regret giving me that opportunity. I learned a lot about engineering and the business of engineering from Joe, and I am forever grateful to Joe for providing me with the opportunity that launched my career.
OUR FAMILY HISTORY - A LONG LINE OF PADULA ENGINEERS
Principal and Founder
The “Four Padula Boys of the United States Army Corps of Engineers”. Mark’s Grandfather (2nd from the left) is pictured here with Mark’s Grandfather’s three uncles (William on the left, George second from the right, and Alfred on the right). Two generations of engineer’s! Engineering and Padulas go back a long way.
Director of Engineering and Surveying
Padulas have been engineering up and down the eastern seaboard for generations. Mark’s Grandfather is shown here in a Cape May County Times newspaper clipping from August 14, 1962. Mark’s Grandfather served in a crucial role in constructing sand dunes in shore towns up and down the Jersey coastline. Today Padula Engineering Company offers both civil engineering and land surveying services in New Jersey as well as Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
Engineering has been in the Padulas’ blood for generations. Mark has followed in the footsteps of his Grandfather and continues the family’s legacy in engineering today. From the beginning of his career, Mark has been a hands-on, practical engineer. In this photograph Mark can be seen inspecting a stormwater basin riser during site construction at the Delaware County Prison. The month is correct, the water temperature was in the high thirty’s that day. Mark was standing on a pile of stone that felt like razor blades.
