DENVER, CO — Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) welcomes Alex Kosis back to the firm as an Associate Principal, bolstering the company's expertise in building enclosure engineering consulting and sustainable building practices. He joins SGH’s Building Technology group from Denver, Colorado, partnering closely with SGH colleagues in the San Francisco Bay Area; Chicago, Illinois; and throughout the United States. Kosis brings more than 15 years of experience in the industry, specializing in roofing and waterproofing system design and repair, and thermal analysis for optimal building performance.

“Alex has been a tremendously positive presence at SGH ever since joining us straight out of school. It is gratifying to see our homegrown talent progress from intern to partner and turn into leaders and client-focused problem solvers along the way,” said Niklas Vigener, SGH Chief Technical Officer. “We are thrilled to have him back with SGH and look forward to seeing how his professional dedication and personal enthusiasm will create new opportunities for our clients and project partners in Colorado and the Mountain Region. SGH is open for business in Denver.”

Kosis spent 11 years with SGH to start his career, joining the firm as a Technical Intern in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office and advancing to senior engineering positions in Southern California and the San Francisco Bay Area. Most recently, Kosis has practiced in Denver and the surrounding region with several building enclosure consulting firms.

“It is great to join SGH and help build on the firm’s stellar reputation for solving challenging engineering problems,” Kosis said. “I am excited to partner with our many experts across the firm and eager to help develop our presence across Colorado and the Mountain Region.”

Kosis said he is dedicated to sharing his experience and expertise with project partners, team members, and prospective engineers. His industry and academic contributions include serving on ASTM International’s ASTM D08 Committee on Roofing & Waterproofing, volunteering as an instructor for Engineer’s Alliance with the Arts, and lecturing on building failures and forensic investigations at Pennsylvania State University.
