“Structural engineers help maintain a safe society - that is something I truly enjoy about this profession.”
Kyle jumpstarted his DCI career with an internship at the firm. Stepping into a full-time engineering position exposed him to more cost estimating and structural calculation experience for commercial and mixed-use projects. He worked on small tenant improvement projects to high-rise construction buildings in Seattle, southern California, and the Bay Area. Kyle transferred to the San Francisco office to engage in the booming market and learned more about different construction types and methods.
Along with the client and contractor, he discusses construction efficiencies early in the stages of design. To Kyle, this is the moment when the project team comes up with the best structural solutions.
