The founding members of CGK Consulting Group met in Texas in 2007 during the early years of their professional careers. They were working in an engineering and professional development program for one of the largest Portland cement & building materials manufacturers in the United States. Over the years, Michael Carlomagno, Joshua Gemmell, and Seth Kahle became colleagues and friends, but shortly after moved on to other positions and companies where they began to specialize in different engineering disciplines.
Michael, a Mechanical Engineer from California State University, Chico, moved to San Diego to work and develop skills as a mechanical engineer and project manager for commercial, pharmaceuticals, life science, and light industrial construction projects. In 2011, Michael received his Professional Engineer’s license from the State of California, and continued to work in the San Diego area.
Joshua spent several years working as a process and mechanical reliability engineer as well as a commissioning engineer on a brand new Portland cement plant in Florida. In 2010, he returned to his Chemical Engineering alma mater, Arizona State University, to pursue a Masters of Science in Construction Management. Subsequently, Joshua went to work for Jacobs Engineering in their mining engineering department located in Tempe.
A chemical engineer from the University of Michigan, Seth left the cement manufacturer to go work in the Midwest at The Dow Chemical Company, which would later become Americas Styrenics, a joint venture between Dow and Chevron Phillips Chemicals. During this time, Seth was a manufacturing capital projects engineer, and was heavily exposed to industrial process control, instrumentation, and electrical systems. While working in the Chicagoland area, Seth returned to school for Bachelors of Science in Technical Project Management with a specialty in Computer Information Systems.
In late 2012, discussion about starting a multidisciplinary engineering firm began, and by July 2013, CGK Consulting Group, Inc had formally incorporated in the State of California. As more business opportunities started to arise, Michael, Joshua, and Seth all came to work for CGK on a full time basis and hired the first two employees in 2014. The diversity of education and on-the-job experience allowed CGK to tackle complicated engineering projects from the very beginning.

The ACE program helps to mentor high school students and inspires them to pursue careers in design and construction. It’s now the construction industry’s fastest-growing high school mentoring program, reaching over 8,000 students annually.

CGK Consulting Group is going on their fifth year of involvement in the local San Diego region of the ACE Mentor Program. The year-long program brings enjoyment to our careers as we get the chance to show the local youth the benefits of our architectural, construction, and engineering industries, and to give a snapshot of our everyday tasks. The program also gives our youth an extracurricular activity and help those who are in disadvantaged neighborhoods or schools.
CGK Consulting Group is continually involved in the annual philanthropic event through the local San Diego chapter of ASHRAE. The organization spent the early morning preparing and serving breakfast to the tenants of the St. Vincent de Paul Village.
