Structural Engineer


Structural Engineer

I work through construction to make sure things stay put. I'm analysing structures, testing durability of materials, and overseeing the construction process. No one wants a wind turbine to fall down, or a solar panel to fly off in the wind. I'm here to make sure we build things once, and only once!
