As Managing Member, Ron Steele led the regional firm for 53 years
November 15, 2021 — Steele Foundation LLC announces the retirement of Founder and Managing Member Ronald (Ron) W. Steele, P.E. Ron Steele has directed field operations of the regionally owned and operated design and construction foundation consulting firm since he founded it in 1968. He is succeeded in leadership of the firm by his son, President J. Andrew (Andy) Steele, P.E., D. GE.
With more than 50 years in the design and construction of excavation support systems, façade preservation and shoring systems for structural modifications, Ron Steele is renowned for his knowledge and experience throughout the industry.
Ron Steele earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Purdue University, and is a registered Professional Engineer (P.E.) in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. His support of the foundation industry extends to active committee roles over the years in the Post-Tensioning Institute and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
Says Andy Steele, “Steele Foundation is one of the few firms that specializes in engineered foundation construction, which requires the skills and talent of highly-trained licensed professionals. My father’s business acumen and unique expertise in this essential construction and consulting niche built the company into the leading firm it is today. He is now retiring to California, knowing that he’s created a first-class firm that will endure because of the organizational reputation he’s built and the professional staff that he has mentored.”
