Philip Jo

Principal Environmental Engineer

Philip brings 15 years of environmental experience to KES, ranging from project management and subsurface remediation system design to RI/FS and Phase I and Phase II assessments. Of all of his skillsets, complex industrial and environmental noise monitoring and solutions are areas where he particularly excels. He has devised end-to-end noise solutions for challenging chemical processing facilities and upstream/downstream oil and gas facilities. He played a key role in overseeing noise and vibration tasks in high-profile transit projects like Alameda Corridor Project and Colorado T-REX Project. After joining KES, Philip led environmental management tasks in BART Silicon Valley Extension, Sound Transit Northgate Link and Metro Regional Connector by executing noise and vibration control plans, providing mitigation measures and coordinating time-critical tasks with project teams. He is a State of California Registered Mechanical Engineer (M31651), and a member of Institute of Noise Control Engineering and ASME. He has a BS in Civil Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a MS in Environmental Engineering from Stanford University.
