Alan Tonissen has been with KPFF since 2011 where he has developed a passion for adaptive reuse and structural retrofit. He appreciates the challenge of assessing the existing structural system of old buildings in order to meet the requirements of the planned use and current building standards. Alan has worked on structural and nonstructural seismic compliance in healthcare in addition to repurposing buildings for commercial office and event spaces. He welcomes the opportunity to work closely with the design team, owner and contractor to rescue old buildings from demolition while reinvigorating the community through construction.
