Jeremy Ryan

P.E., S.E., LEED AP, BD + C
Associate Principal, Anchorage

“Engineering judgement is the 'magic' that can't be replicated with a computer program. It keeps a bit of art in the profession.”

As a kid, Jeremy accompanied his father (an environmental engineer) to project sites around Alaska. Early exposure to engineering bolstered his natural aptitude for engineering, math, and physics. Jeremy started his professional career in Seattle where he was mentored by future DCI principals; moved onto Sacramento, California; and then returned to Anchorage after a year of world travel. He now has more than 10 years of engineering experience for overall building design, construction administration, and project management. Jeremy has designed structures using steel, post-tensioned concrete, masonry, wood, aluminum, light gage steel, and fiber reinforced polymers. He has contributed to commercial, residential, parking, educational, government, and industrial building projects. Jeremy is a member of the Structural Engineers Association of Alaska (SEAAK).


  • What is your favorite place in Alaska?
    Turnagain Pass, south of Girdwood.
  • If you weren't an engineer, what would you be?
    An outdoors guide of some sort.
  • What is your dream project location?
    A remote mountain top. I'd love to design a light-weight yurt-type structure for delivery by helicopter to remote locations for forest service cabins.
