ENV alumnus Bruce Arita ('77, architecture), forensic architect at Thornton Tomasei, has been in the thick of disaster-related crises including Hurricane Sandy and hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria. He oversees the firm's Property Loss Consulting practice, leading teams of highly skilled engineers, architects and other technical professionals, to assist insurance industry clients, representative attorneys and adjusters from around the world.
