  • Aldo McKay, P.E.

    Mr. McKay has 16 years of experience as a Structural Engineer with focus in the security and protection engineering field. Mr. McKay joined Protection Engineering Consultants in January of 2007. At PEC, he regularly manages physical security and blast-resistant design (Design-build, Design-bid-build) efforts for numerous buildings for conformance with the DoD requirements in UFC 4-010-01, ISC Physical Security Criteria for Federal Facilities, and Physical Security Design Manual for VA Facilities. In addition, Mr. McKay has also managed and led research efforts for the Department of State (DoS) in the field of blast-resistant design and response of structures. Aldo earned a bachelor’s degree in engineering from John Brown University and a Master of Science degree in Structural Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio

  • Marlon Bazan, Ph.D., P.E., S.E.

    Dr. Marlon Bazan joined Protection Engineering Consultants as a Project Engineer in February 2009. He supports and manages design and research projects in broad areas of blast-resistant structures analysis and design. Marlon has performed design projects subject to ATFP and explosive safety requirements for federal (GSA) and military (DoD) clients, and supports industrial and petrochemical clients with designs and upgrades to resist the effects of accidental explosions. In addition to design, Marlon supports design tool development through the incorporation of analysis and design methodologies and related response criteria into the Corps of Engineer’s SBEDS (Single-Degree-of-Freedom Blast Effects Design Spreadsheet) program. Recent efforts have added expanded structural component and retrofit capabilities to that tool. His research projects have included a test program on shoring systems for urban search and rescue for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and investigation of the blast response of steel braced frame structures conducted by PEC for the US Department of State (DoS). Marlon earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the National University of Engineering (Lima, Peru) and a MS and PhD in Structural Engineering from Northeastern University. He is a frequent contributor to and instructor for PEC sponsored short courses.
