His experience has made him adept at coordinating with multiple disciplines to provide the owner with a cost-effective, efficient design.

What is the most interesting phase in the structural design process?

The Schematic Design Phase – this is where we can typically have the most impact to the overall building design. and make sure the structure works with the architecture of the building.

DCI is willing to push the limits of engineering it order achieve the project design objectives. DCI is also committed to providing unique and innovative solutions throughout the construction support phase of our projects.

What is your favorite part about your profession?

Watching a building I’ve designed come to life during construction. It’s exciting to see the all the exposed structure prior to being wrapped up by finishes.
