Sundy Project Engineer Dilip Allam.

Soon after graduating, he moved to Detroit and attended Wayne State University to earn his master’s in Civil Engineering. When he graduated in fall 2016, he moved to Tempe to work for Sundt. He and his brother, Dinesh, work for our Concrete Division. Dilip is in El Paso and Dinesh is in Tempe.

How did you learn about Sundt?

I joined Sundt as an Engineering Intern in summer 2016 and continued to work as a student while I was in my last semester in the fall. I was working from home in Detroit. Then I was offered to join full-time after school and took the offer.

What’s the most challenging thing a Project Engineer has to do?

Manage time.

What’s it like having a brother who essentially has the same job as you?

It is great to work together. We talk a lot about process development and how to lean our processes. One major process development we did together was creating a BIM process for estimating. In this project, Dinesh created a process that we call model-based estimating, which we are using for estimating in concrete and I created how-to videos for the whole process. I learned a lot of things from him throughout that process. Regarding personal life, I think it is always good to stay closer to your family members.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

I would have the power of super speed like The Flash. It would help me be unstoppable while playing soccer or field hockey.

What’s your favorite movie?

“The Shawshank Redemption.”

What’s one thing someone should do or visit when in the El Paso area?

The Scenic Drive is interesting in the evening.
