Honors & Awards

2005 NCSEA OUTSTANDING PROJECT AWARD - Lansing Community College Health and Human Service Careers Building

Career Highlights

  • Redesigned Structural Steel Framing for Lansing Community College which eliminated the need for 700 members, 1,400 connections, and 11,000 shear studs.  This in turn saved the client the cost of approximately 300 tons of steel and the cost to erect it.
  • Developed a plan to erect the Motor City Casino (Detroit, MI) that eliminated a majority of bracing that would have been needed to erect the staggered truss design.
  • Part of a team of international engineers responsible for the design of an addition of the Diamler-Chysler Windsor Assembly Plant (Windsor, Ont).  The design called for the use of existing steel from an existing plant that was located a few miles away from the new addition to the Windsor Assembly Plant.  The design called for locating the existing steel in such a manor as to limit the amount of reinforcing and redesign.
  • Co-Authored with David Ruby (Ruby+Associates, Inc.) an article in Modern Steel Construction Magazine titled Consider Constructability in April 2006
