Rino is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of New York and an LEED Accredited Professional. He’s highly regarded in the industry for his ability to combine sustainability and financial concerns, while offering strategic thinking on critical issues. When White Plains Hospital was facing an unrealistic fire rating standard for their TMI Modular unit, Rino successfully pushed to have the structure recognized for what it was: a penthouse, not an integral part of the building structure. The variance was approved; the project got back on track. He believes that this sort of digging deep on behalf of clients is woven into the culture of GBS. That being responsive, and looking for innovative solutions, is precisely what makes GBS so unique in the industry. Rino completed his Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology.
