FAIRFAX, VA Two Dewberry engineers, Anthony Alduino, PE, and Nicholas Saponara, PE, have been selected to consult on the latest revisions to New York City, New York's, building codes. Alduino and Saponara will use their combined 49 years of engineering experience to lend a practical perspective to the code revisions.

"This is a chance to draw on my accumulated knowledge and experience to improve construction codes for New York City, and I am proud to be a part of the revision process," said Saponara.
