Ann Marie Bugler, PE
Lead Structural Field Engineer | Hilti North America
Ann Marie Bugler is a Lead Structural Field Engineer with Hilti North America. She has been with Hilti for over 18 years, working very closely with the New York City Engineering and Contracting Communities, providing continuing education and trainings to both, to help them come up with engineered design solutions using various Hilti Construction Products such as post installed anchoring and rebar solutions for both concrete and masonry, cast in anchor channel solutions for attaching façades, powder actuated fastening solutions for attaching to both steel and concrete, and how to use Hilti Engineering Design Software’s for all of the above, to help aid with these kinds of designs. Ann Marie also does on site anchor testing when questionable base materials come in to play, where there might not be available published data, to help engineers and contractors to see what kind of load capacities these varying base materials may be able achieve.
Before Hilti, Ann Marie worked for 4 years at STV as a Civil Engineer working on the East Side Access Project, and 5 years at Weidlinger Associates (now part of Thornton Tomasetti) as a Bridge Engineer, working on exciting bridge design projects like helping to design the new approach spans on the Brooklyn Bridge, and various design and inspection work on both the Manhattan Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge.
