John Gross III PE, ATD
John is part of a dedicated team of engineers in the Page Science / Technology market sector, where he serves as Mechanical Engineering Director, specializing in Mission Critical facilities, complex Utility Plant projects, and Automation and Controls. In a previous life, John worked as a Research and Development Engineer for Roush-Yates Racing Engines as the lead engineer on the Rolex Daytona Prototype Engine program.
During his time in the industry, attention to detail, a drive for perfection, and leveraging technology for optimized, and occasionally forensic, analyses were driven into his fabric. After rejoining the MEP consulting industry during the economic downturn, John turned those traits to bear on complex facility and system commissioning and design. His extensive experience brings a unique perspective to the design phase of his projects, with a heavy focus on operations and maintenance. Utilizing the forensic analysis and technology experience achieved during his time in racing, he has become one of Page’s go-to engineers for troubleshooting field issues and conducting Master Plan studies for system renovations.
Through his interest in technology and attention to detail, he has worked with chiller manufacturers to develop Rapid Restart logic in their internal controllers, has given multiple presentations on Integrated Automation, and has become Page’s Engineering Leader in Energy Code Analysis.
As deeply as he dove into MEP Engineering, don’t think that he has left the motorsports bug behind. In his spare time, he and his wife serve as racing instructors for multiple motorsports clubs in and around Texas. When not at the track, you can usually find John in his garage shop working on friends’ exotic cars like Lamborghinis, vintage Ferraris, Lotus’, Vipers and Corvettes.
