Ed’s experience allows him to see the project in a complete setting and understand the complex interaction between the geotechnical, structural, architectural, and thermal environments. Ed’s civil engineering background includes geohydrology, hydrology, hydraulics, site design, and evaluation of existing structures. Ed’s structural background includes new design and quality assurance of industrial systems, residential, and commercial properties. Post-construction analysis and design to handle issues that came through warranty and/or litigated matters include lateral foundation systems, foundation underpinning, retaining systems, lateral and vertical frame design, building envelope design for both vertical and horizontal applications, HVAC redesign for thermal issues, attic and crawl space ventilation systems, and cold roof/super-insulated roof systems. Ed continues his commitment to the building community teaching and writing for local and national organizations including ASHRAE, ASCE, AEI, BEC, RCI, NAFE, HBA, IBS, CABO, EPA, and others.

Ed’s knowledge gained in working with thousands of common interest properties over the last 30-years for owners, developers, and buyers provides a unique and necessary perspective on the details and decisions that reduce the risk to the property by providing performance and effective life analysis of the products and systems.
