Over a career that spans more than four decades, Leonard Joseph has analyzed, designed and reviewed scores of tall and supertall towers, sports venues, aviation and transportation facilities, hotels, historic buildings, arts centers and special structures. A recognized expert in the impact of seismic, wind and other natural hazards on buildings, he uses traditional engineering principles and modern systems and technologies to develop appropriate solutions. Len works with a wide variety of materials, including structural steel, reinforced concrete, precast and post-tensioned concrete, masonry, wood and light-gauge framing. His project credits include some of the world’s tallest and most notable buildings, such as Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles, Shanghai Tower and Ping An International Financial Center in Shenzhen, both of which are in China, Taiwan’s Taipei 101 and Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
