    Background

    Overseeing everything from multi-family housing and higher education, to concrete towers and tenant improvements, Jeff enjoys tackling the diverse, unique challenges that arise from his projects. He takes time to investigate options and devise the right approach to realize practical, elegant solutions that are not overly-complex. Jeff proactively engages with owners and architects to understand how structural engineering can help meet their goals from the outset. He also understands the pressing needs of contractors on site, working closely with them to find workable, safe solutions for temporary bracing, steel erection or demolition. Since joining KPFF in 2004, Jeff has mentored recent college graduates new to professional structural engineering. He also helps curate the firm’s best practices into uniform standard details and specifications for wood structures and excavation.
