Unified Building Sciences and Engineering maintains a full staff of Structural Engineers who have both specific and specialized structural engineering qualifications and extensive experience. Working independently or in conjunction with our other engineering disciplines, our structural group has experience in all phases of both residential and commercial structural engineering with a special emphasis on the development of innovative structural concepts, and diagnostic evaluation of building deficiencies.
In addition to the design of foundation systems, the team has extensive experience with the design of steel, concrete, masonry, and wood structures.
For a list of some of the projects we have completed, please visit the Projects page.
Key Personnel in the Structural Engineering group include:
Richard Windham, P.E. – President – obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering Technology from New Mexico State University in 1995. He has developed his structural engineering skills through analysis and design of buildings and foundations for residential and commercial projects. He has performed many evaluations regarding foundation failure, structural collapse, design, extent and causation of damage or loss. Mr. Windham’s structural engineering experience is a valuable asset to Unified Building Sciences & Engineering, Inc.
Christopher J. Meyer, P.E. – Vice President – studied architectural and structural engineering at the University of Texas at Austin, where he received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in 1995 and 1998, respectively. His graduate research focused on the use of wood and wood products as structural materials. As an employee of UBSE, Mr. Meyer’s design experience includes projects for schools, churches, industrial and office facilities, warehouses, fire stations, and single and multi-family residential housing. In addition to the design of foundation systems, he has extensive experience with the design of steel, concrete, masonry, and wood structures.
Gary P. Ten Eyck, P.E. has a background in all phases of structural engineering with a special emphasis on the development of innovative structural concepts, diagnostic evaluation of building deficiencies and project peer review and has 45 years of professional experience. He obtained his BSCE from Michigan State University in 1958. He is recognized nationally as a leader in the field of loss prevention and risk management for structural engineers and has written numerous articles in this specialty. He is past President of the Structural Engineers Risk Management Council (SERMC). Mr. Ten Eyck is a member of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. He is currently serving on the Contracts Committee of the Council of American Structural Engineers and is past President of the Structural Engineers Association of Texas.
