While in Junior Year of College, Dave was hired on as a Full Time Mechanical Designer for an Escalator Elevator Company. The hire was for a special project in which was to be the tallest rise escalator in the western hemisphere to the New York Transit Station. As Lead drafter and Assistant Mechanical designer to a two man team, Dave had the honor to work on this fully custom new Heavy duty Escalator in the isolated Research & Development lock down. Dave Designed, Modeled, and Drafted over 1,200+ Inventor / AutoCAD part-assembly-tooling drawings to come together and be assembled at the same facility. They brought a concept to production within 18 months, collaborating immensely with purchasing groups, local fabrication, machining shops and mechanics on the manufacturing floor to produce a successful product. Dave programmed and debugged an excel mass upload program to take AutoCAD drawings & Material Specifications to a database system to meet Engineering deadline schedules. He was truly honored to see shortly after the heavy duty product they developed, would then reach another record in height at 120'+ rise to Washington D.C. Metro Station. The ride time is over 2 1/2 minutes one way and now carries the Tallest Escalator in the Western Hemisphere.
