I have 25 years of structural engineering experience. I am honest and hardworking and will do whatever is needed to get the job done right the first time. I respond quickly to service calls and deploy a personalized, hands-on approach to every project for 100 percent satisfaction. A brief summary of services is as follows:

  • Management of project design, budget, scheduling, initializing and servicing client contracts, addressing the client’s needs, and coordination of construction changes, additions, etc.
  • Working knowledge of the latest building codes and design practices for steel structures, concrete structures, wood and masonry structures, and general analysis (e.g., existing structures, secondary structures, non-building structures, and computer verification)
  • Defining the scope of work
  • Excellent communication skills, written and verbal
  • Reading and interpreting drawings
  • Determining the method of analysis and applicable code requirements
  • Building mathematical models and designing economic structures
  • Use of professional judgment in making design assumptions
  • Integrating design requirements and organizing calculations
  • Integrating analysis and design
  • Following through from design into drawings and details
  • Sketching details
