Indira Hernandez PE
Indira Hernandez joined GACE in 2008, and has managed an impressive selection of projects including 412 West 15th Street – a new steel frame office tower.
During her time at the firm she has often enjoyed a concentration in adaptive reuse and building renewals. Indira considers herself a detective of structures, finding that by investigating old buildings in order to rehabilitate them, she enriches her own understanding of engineering. Always passionate about building preservation, Indira enjoys breathing life into unused or dilapidated structures by turning them into functional and beautiful spaces, as with the Landmark conversion of 443 Greenwich Street in Tribeca.
In addition to managing her projects, Indira finds working with and mentoring junior engineers to be one of the most rewarding aspects of her job. She serves on the firm’s Professional Development Committee, preparing and administering workshops to teach new engineers about GACE structural design and office standards. She also serves on the Recruitment Committee, and helps to lead the ACE Mentoring program at GACE.
Indira is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of New York and holds a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering from Columbia, and a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. She is member of the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY), American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA).
