Experience

With more than 40 years of civil engineering experience in the consulting engineering profession, Mr. Bernstein has worked in a multitude of roles, including project work and management.  His project work includes civil engineering design such as site design for new commercial, residential, institutional and municipal projects; providing expert witness regarding drainage issues for residential, governmental and commercial facilities.  He is President of SLB Group, LLC which provides general civil engineering services for colleges, commercial, residential and industrial clients.  Current and recently completed projects include: new water service under Hull Bay for Spinnaker Island; new 500 Foot sewer force main for the Boston Police VFW; Numerous Playground for for Boston Parks and Recreation; Elliot Playground for Boston Parks and Recreation; Coddington School Administration Building, Quincy, MA; large drainage project for Wendy's restaurant in Milford, MA ; Well Permitting for Clearwater Well Company; miscellaneous  grading and drainage improvements to correct flooding due to various circumstances for single family homes and businesses throughout Massachusetts.   Call me before you buy your property so after you will not suffer with drainage issues and wet basements and  a costly repair.  Sometimes I talk you out of the purchase.

Previous employment, he was the Civil Engineer of record for several high-profile residential projects including a senior retirement campus in Hingham, Massachusetts that includes more than 1,000 units of housing on 108 acres. Besides the complexities of designing the utilities on the project (water, sewer, and drainage), the off-site utilities presented significant challenges. Potable water was extended to the site from a neighboring community; a water audit with water conservation devices and new fixtures installed on the existing large users in the community was enforced; and a leak detection study was conducted to provide water for the earlier phases of the project. Wastewater was collected by gravity sewers, then sent to a central pump station and pumped through a 3,000-foot force main to an innovative on-site wastewater treatment plan with discharge by “wick wells” on a neighboring property  He has orchestrated the site survey, civil engineering, and environmental permitting to help make this a very successful project.

Steve recently provided pro-bono work that includes civil engineering services for the South Shore Habitat for Humanity of  South Shore Habitat for Humanity which is a faith-based, nonprofit organization dedicated to delivering simple, decent, affordable homes in partnership with families in need. 
He has a team of design professionals providing pro bono services for the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA to correct a major drainage issue causing safety issues.
 

Earlier in his career, he was an elected Water Commissioner for the Town of Randolph, MA. He was Chair for 5 years and was responsible for the Randolph Water Department personnel; the Joint Board with Holbrook, MA where the two towns operated a Water Treatment plant and distribution system; and the Tri-board with Braintree, Randolph and Holbrook where the three towns shared and managed  the  water supply system.
