Syska Hennessy Group: Where Are all the Women Engineers?

This was definitely the case for Marina Dishel, P.E., now a vice president with the Syska Hennessy Group's New York office.You see, Dishel was born, raised and educated in Russia, where, with very few exceptions, women make up approximately 50% of any profession or trade."So the biggest surprise to me when I came to this country was that being a [female] engineer was an exception rather than the rule," said Dishel.That said, language, rather than a gender barrier, proved her greatest struggle.In any case, Dishel can now look back and see how much more balanced the industry has become."On the past three large projects I've worked on, women occupied major managerial roles.Women in construction today are not an oddity, but an expected eventuality," she states."Looking back, nothing sticks out as unpleasant in dealing with my [engineering] colleagues, but dealing with contractors was something else," recalls Dishel.Similarly, Marina Dishel, P.E., vice president, Syska Hennessy Group, New York, credits her late parents-in-law with being guardian angels when her son was young."When they passed away, we had to have a live-in housekeeper," she recalls.


New York Construction News

Con Edison will provide electrical power to the campus via six 13,200 "V" service feeders, explained Marina Dishel, a vice president with Syska & Hennessey Inc., the project's New York-based mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineer.The feeders terminate at six 3,000KVA service substations that transform the voltage to the 5 KV level.The power is collected at a 60-ft.-long collector bus to provide service reliability, and then distributed throughout the campus via 5 KV feeders."The system is not only more reliable than the current service," Dishel said, "but it also reduces operating costs because the power is bought at a lower (high tension) rate."A new diesel-engine standby 4 MW 5 KV power plant located in the building's penthouse will provide emergency power to backup essential services, she added. The need for three basement levels, chiefly to house the electrical equipment, meant a cavernous excavation approximately 45 ft. deep and the removal of roughly 35,000 cu. tons of rock.

In surveying the post-Sandy landscape and working with some clients in the city, among them health-care institutions, vice presidents Keith Fitzpatrick and Marina Dishel see a litany of concerns.
Then there's the problem of existing city building codes that dictate rules on emergency power system integration and, more relevantly, where and how much diesel fuel can be stored on-site, says Dishel. "A lot of buildings will probably be looking to at least elevate pumps above flood level, if possible, but depending on the architecture of the system and the building that can be costly," she says.
