Our People

Eli B. Gottlieb

P.E. Managing Principal & New York Metropolitan Region Co-Leader


A leader in our Structural Engineering practice, Eli Gottlieb has worked on technically challenging and creative projects around the world. His experience includes the structural analysis, design and review of nearly every type of building, including museums and cultural institutions, commercial and residential high-rises, hotels, healthcare facilities, academic buildings and sports venues. Eli brings creative thinking and new approaches to many of his projects. He engineered the 10-acre platform over an active rail yard on which much of Manhattan’s massive Hudson Yards is built as well as The Shed, also part of the development, which created a new paradigm for flexible cultural and performance space. Eli’s portfolio also includes 7 and 11 Times Square and New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital in New York, the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business in Ann Arbor and Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.


M.S., Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics, Columbia University

One of Eli’s key strengths is combining high-tech software tools with traditional pragmatic engineering.
