Igor A. Kalinin
Senior Engineering Technician in Chicago, Illinois
My name is Igor Kalinin. I live in Chicago, IL and work for Gannett Fleming, Inc located in Chicago, IL. Gannett Fleming is a full service consulting engineering firm. I love structural and civil design and have the pleasure of working with some of the biggest projects in the United States. I've had the pleasure, along with other engineering firms, join forces in modernizing the O'Hare International Airport. The O’Hare Modernization Program (OMP) is one of the largest construction projects in the country at one of the world’s busiest airports.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I married my wonderful wife Snezhana in Aug of 2004. We now have 2 beautiful daughters, Ella-Trinity and Isabella. Ella was born in 2009, and Isabella was our celebrity arriving as the first baby of the hospital in 2013. I am both blessed and grateful to have a wonderful family that surrounds me and gives me the motivation and support I need.
I am also actively involved at our local church. UBCChicago (Ukrainian Baptist Church) where I am an ordained deacon, sing in choir, and take part in our contemporary band. I also manage the UBC property, and hold a seat on the church committee.
All in all, I'm really into being a dad, travel when I could; enjoy architecture, biking, swimming, volleyball and golf. Some fun facts: I’m a loyal Blackberry user and a loyal Nissan/ Infiniti owner. I also root for our Chicago White Sox!
