Paul Orsburn

Acting Construction Management Deputy Director

Paul has over two decades of design, construction, and project management experience in all aspects of infrastructure projects – roads, bridges, rail, water and wastewater, and facilities. He is a licensed engineer with management experience encompassing all phases of project development, from design and engineering through construction and closeout, leading large multi-discipline teams.

He joined the SFMTA in 2013 to work on Central Subway as a Resident Engineer for the $175 million Yerba Buena/Moscone and the $315 million Union Square/Market stations. There he interfaced with the design team, end users and contractors in all elements of the two stations. Working on Central Subway for the past ten years has provided him with invaluable experience in delivering a large capital project with major civil engineer interfaces - architectural, structural, electrical, mechanical and utility work.

Previously, Paul worked for the SFPUC for seven years in construction management delivering numerous water and wastewater infrastructure projects in the City and Peninsula. Before that he worked in the private sector as a geotechnical consultant in San Diego and Oakland on both private and public development projects.

He holds a master’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Kentucky with an emphasis in both geotechnical and railroad engineering.
