Craig Stainer

“Structural engineers provide a voice of reason to the design process. We try to bridge the gap between the architect's vision and a constructible design."

Craig grew up in a construction family who shared with him the job satisfaction of the A/E/C trades. Always talented in the subject of mathematics, he inherently chose a profession in structural engineering. Since joining DCI in 1994, he has been running calculations, determining efficient structural system configurations, and advising on effective framing materials for new and existing buildings. Craig gained valuable experience through project management responsibilities. He continues to reap the rewards of successfully managing projects in the commercial, worship, office, mixed-use, residential, medical, and municipal sectors. He is a member of the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC).
