Principal, Cottonwood

DCI brings a ‘can do’ attitude to the table when others say a complex design is impossible. Taking on the challenge for our clients is what we are trained to do and what we do best. This enthusiasm to find a solution is what makes our job fun.”

Thomas grew up on a family farm in Idaho, where he worked on equipment and built various projects out of old cultivator parts. When the time came to plan for college, his father recognized he had a knack for innovation and suggested Thomas pursue a career in engineering. While earning his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Boise State University, he strengthened his commitment in becoming a next gen engineering problem solver. Joining DCI in 2006, Thomas is now known for taking on unprecedented structural design projects and advocating project work efficiencies, particularly with large-scale projects. A strong supporter of aspiring analytical minds, he mentors prospective engineers eager to learn and push the limits of future structural design.
