What I Do I work for Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc. (SGH) – a national engineering firm that designs, investigates, and rehabilitates structures and building enclosures. I have designed wall and roof cladding components; investigated the condition of historic structures, stadiums, and resorts; and managed the construction administration of projects large and small. It’s not a normal office job. Some workdays you can find me out on site in full investigation mode – hanging off the sides of buildings on ropes, scaling scaffolding, riding lifts and swingstages, and getting wet and dirty. While on other days, I write technical reports for clients as well as research papers. I give lectures and seminars worldwide. I also help recruit and mentor the next generation of engineers.
