    For Tommi, structural engineering is an essential, exciting piece of each project puzzle. By considering all project perspectives – from the owner and architect, to the general contractor and other disciplines – Tommi devises the right solution to make a design work. Since starting at KPFF in 1995, she has been drawn to the challenges of working on upgrades to existing buildings and major infrastructure projects. Tommi works within the unique, real-world constraints of these projects to maximize the usability of places and the land. As a project manager, Tommi enjoys making sure the overall project runs smoothly, while taking the time to delve into nitty-gritty details when needed. She takes seriously her role as mentor to junior staff, advising on best practices for drawings, reports and other documents to continuously improve our efforts.
