Working with cable and fabric is always fascinating. The materials are incredibly versatile, and I really enjoy the challenge of creating the complex, yet strikingly beautiful geometries that can be achieved with tensile structures.

As a key member of Thornton Tomasetti’s Structural Engineering practice, Greg has represented the firm in Connecticut and the surrounding area for more than a decade. He has 20-plus years of experience in structural engineering, and performs analysis and design for all types of building projects, specializing in tensioned fabric and cable structures.

Diversified Expertise
Greg has made significant contributions to a wide variety of projects for public and private clients in the United States and abroad. He was construction support services project manager for Argentina’s award-winning La Plata Stadium, a world-class sports arena noted for its innovative twin-peaked fabric domed roof. His other credits include project management for the Common Apartments in Stamford, Connecticut, and the 3,000-square-foot tensile roof structure at the Staten Island Children’s Museum, the first project of its kind to combine photovoltaic film panels with a PTFE-coated fiberglass membrane. He designed the new 540-foot-wide iconic canopy for the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana, and has managed a large number of other projects, ranging from the Gramercy Starck Apartments at 340 East 23rd Street in New York to the structural evaluation of the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines. Greg is a member of the ASCE/SEI-19 Structural Applications of Steel Cables for Buildings Standards Committee, which prescribes industry requirements for the design of cable-supported structures.

Outside of Work
Greg is a seasoned world traveler. He enjoys swimming, fishing and kayaking with his wife and three young children at their cottage in Rhode Island.
