Welcome to the Team, Eric and Alec!

Eric Fletcher and Alec Berger

BSE Structural Engineers is excited to welcome Eric Fletcher and Alec Berger to our team.

Eric Fletcher joins BSE as a structural engineer. Eric graduated from Kansas State University in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering with a structural emphasis. Eric has 5 years of experience in light industrial, federal, and a variety of other building projects. He relocated to Kansas City from Tacoma, Washington where he worked for a civil and structural engineering firm. Eric is originally from Topeka, Kansas, so he was glad to move to the Kansas City area to be closer to family. Outside of work, Eric enjoys hiking, traveling, investing, and reading.

Alec Berger joins BSE as a design technician.  Alec completed a Computer Aided Drafting and Design (C.A.D.D.) Certificate from Metropolitan Community College in December 2020. Alec previously worked with schools and non-profit organizations before deciding to make a career change to drafting and design. Alec moved to Kansas City three years ago from Lafayette, Indiana. When not working, Alec enjoys camping, hiking and other outdoor activities.

Waterpark Making Big Splash For Visually Impaired Patrons

In the July/August 2013 issue of The World Waterpark Association’s publication, World Water Park Magazine, Lions Water Adventure at Woodmen Community Center in Kinston, NC is praised for creating the first waterpark specifically designed to accommodate individuals with visual impairments.

BSE Structural Engineers provided engineering services for all three waterslides at Lions Water Adventure. The slides are manufactured by Avalanche Waterslides and provide three different experiences for riders to enjoy.

Each waterslide is 32-feet-high and bold in color. They are individually designed to provide a safe, fun experience for everyone. The zebra slide is a twisted slide inner-tubes glide down. The signature lion slide plunges riders down through the lion’s mouth and into the pool. The special low-splash slide provides a way for visually and hearing impaired patrons to enjoy a stress-free ride.
