Arup appoints Terzaghi to lead Americas geotechnics team

Sergei Terzaghi – grandson of Karl von Terzaghi – has been appointed as Americas geotechnical leader by Arup.

Arup chairman of the Americas region Andy Howard said: “Sergei is one of the world’s foremost geotechnical engineers. We are delighted to add his industry leading talent to our team.”

Terzaghi, who will be based in Los Angeles, added: “I’m honored to join the Arup team here on the West Coast. Geotechnical engineering is a vital and growing discipline – especially in this region – and I’m looking forward to bringing my passion and expertise in this field to the Americas region.”

Terzaghi has over 30 years’ experience in geotechnics. According to Arup, his work encompasses the full breadth of geotechnical engineering.

Prior to coming to Los Angeles, Terzaghi spent over eight years in Arup’s Sydney office as a senior associate and then as a principal. There, he worked on a wide range of projects throughout Australia and Asia, including the Thomson Eastern Rail Line in Singapore; the Northern Connector Freeway in Adelaide; multiple sections of the Pacific Highway Upgrade in New South Wales, Australia; and Pump Station 15 in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Before his time at Arup, Sergei served as senior associate at Sinclair Knight Merz, a senior engineer at URS Grenier Woodward-Clyde and senior geotechnical engineer at Murray North. Sergei undertook his engineering degree at University of Canterbury in New Zealand.
