“I’ve always enjoyed the art of being part of a team – discovering the most helpful role in projects and the reward of seeing that collaboration come to life.”

As a kid, Blake grew up inspired by his uncle who designed structural solutions for projects at Disney theme parks and Universal Studios. That impression, coupled with his natural gifts in math, provided Blake the perfect equation for entering the structural engineering field.

Blake joined the firm in 2014 and has since worked on several lab, mixed-use, office, residential and historic buildings throughout Delaware and the Philadelphia area; and while not a theme park attraction, one memorable project even included the goal post height extensions for the Philadelphia Eagles where Blake got to ask the NFL about deflection criteria. What a wild ride!
