Nathan Fields

Associate, San Diego

“Watching your work become a reality is a great part of this profession.”

After an impressionable internship in custom home structural design, Nathan switched his major from electrical engineering to civil engineering. His networking efforts connected him to DCI principals, and Nathan’s career at the firm sprung from that moment. Nathan’s clients and colleagues recognize his persistence in developing work relationships and his values for camaraderie. This professional drive has led him to more responsibilities at DCI, which includes managing and mentoring new engineers, plus heading weekly project schedule meetings.

Nathan’s project management responsibilities cover podium and existing building retrofit work. Nathan’s project types range from residential, mixed-use, and government/military structures. Project teams rely on his capable leadership in directing a project from the early stages of a proposal to the result of building occupancy. Clients and coworkers both appreciate his work ethic, technical guidance, and partnership.
