"Our long-term commitment to clients and a company culture that promotes professional growth and integrity are the foundations of our success.”

Brian thrives on building what the imagination creates. At home that means tackling home renovations projects, rebuilding vintage British motorcycles or camping with his family. At VAA, it’s a mindset that helps create the best results for his clients and co-workers. He excels during design-build opportunities where design direction is a collaborative process among client team members resulting in the best value for an owner.

Joining the firm as a Project Structural Engineer, Brian has grown within VAA. As a Partner, his role includes annual business planning and growth to manage and advance relationships with clients in the firm’s building and agribusiness sectors. On a daily basis, Brian will continue to provide quality control reviews and apply design knowledge to a variety of projects.

Brian’s knowledge with national standards, building codes and Federal Government criteria are a valuable resource both internally and externally. His work with Army Reserve Centers, senior living facilities and other commercial buildings include designing structural systems from structural steel to post-tensioned concrete structures, including special high-wind and seismic detailing.
