"Helping others resolve real or perceived challenges is the best part about being a structural engineer. The decision making process of getting a project to the final stages where it can finally be visualized is always interesting."

Always using a methodical approach, Darren specializes in the analysis and investigation of existing structures to determine:

  • code compliance
  • existing conditions for renovation and/or additions
  • structural capacity
  • building envelope conditions/identification of needed repairs
  • roofing system recommendations

His  background also encompasses the design of structural systems and components for a range of building types.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
X-ray vision, seems like everyone is always requesting thoughts on things I can't directly see.

What do you enjoy most about structural engineering?
Helping to resolve unique problems and situations that others do not understand.

What is your favorite building in Central Ohio?
Too many to pick just one, but the older ones around town.
