Nelson Long Joins Burns’ Healthcare Engineering Team
Joining our Orlando office, Nelson brings 25 years of mechanical engineering experience within the healthcare sector. Previous projects span from in-patient facility upgrades to central energy plant renovations to construction of new hospital campuses.
Nelson has established a strong reputation for his involvement in the comprehensive design of large-scale, complex healthcare environments and for his trusted oversight of continuous facility operations.
Recent projects include designs for an eight-story oncology tower, the phased expansion of a community hospital’s emergency department, and a comprehensive hospital lab renovation featuring one of Florida’s first active chilled beam cooling systems.
A Pennsylvania native and 12-year National Guard veteran, Nelson has called Central Florida home since relocating with his family in the mid-1990s. Nelson was drawn to Burns after admiring the team’s close collaboration with hospital ownership and facility teams.
“Building long-term relationships between our engineers and ownership is extremely important,” Nelson said. “To that end, every project matters — no matter how big or how small.”
As a Project Manager, Nelson is leading projects at Central Florida Regional Hospital, Blake Medical Center, Regional Medical Center of Bayonet Point, and Ocala Regional Medical Center.
