Being involved in the conception of a design and then working with the technical team to make it happen is the best of all possible worlds.

Sam Tinsley specializes in the structural design, analysis and management of new construction, renovation and expansion projects. A leader in the Structural Engineering practice, he is responsible for all phases of project delivery, from conceptual design through construction administration, working in close collaboration with architects and other members of the project team.
