Jim is a licensed structural engineer with over 28 years of experience in the structural design of multiple building materials, as well as many sustainable construction techniques. His experience includes a broad spectrum of building and client types, enabling him to provide creative, cost effective solutions for all projects.
As the structural engineering team lead, Jim manages projects of all sizes and has the depth of professional knowledge that allows him to evaluate, select, and engineer all structural systems and assist in the development of standards and specifications. He provides sound solutions to projects of all shapes and sizes balancing cost, complexity, and constructability enabling the team to deliver a facility on schedule and budget.
Jim believes that his diverse background sets him apart—his father was a contractor, and he started working construction when he was 14, and after earning his PhD in structural engineering, he owned his own consulting firm for over 22 years. Outside of work, he loves to hunt, fish, and go to baseball games—to Jim, the Detroit Tigers are second to none.
