David specializes in delivering structural engineering services within non-traditional and collaborative methods such as design-build and Integrated Project Delivery.

David Choi has 14 years of experience in structural analysis, design and project management for a wide variety of new buildings and seismic retrofits. He has successfully delivered projects in the commercial, justice, institutional and education sectors, but maintains a specialized emphasis on healthcare projects.

A Focus on Lean and IPD
David has an extensive background in the principles of Lean project delivery and focuses much of his time on integrated and collaborative project delivery methodologies, including design-build and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). He is a member of the Lean Construction Institute and the author of “Integrated Project Delivery: A Structural Engineer’s Perspective,” published in the Proceedings of the 79th Structural Engineers Association of California Conference.

Outside of Work
David lives with his wife and two children in San Francisco’s East Bay. He enjoys watching and playing sports and has successfully (if improbably) conditioned his children to believe that the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Falcons are two of the greatest teams in sports. David is also a golf addict and dreams of one day shooting a 59 … as an 18-hole score.
