One of R+C’s earliest LEED-accredited professionals, Alan leads our sustainable design practice. He co-authored SEAONC’s Structural Engineering Strategies Towards Sustainable Design and the ASCE/SEI’s Guidelines to Sustainable Design. One of his recent projects, UC San Diego’s Supercomputer Center expansion, exceeds Title 24 by 46 percent. This is a result of intense collaboration with the design team to maximize passive energy savings through the use of features such as thermal mass in the exposed concrete structure and building configuration to maximize natural light.
During his 22 years at R+C, Alan has also focused on concrete design. He lectured for the Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures course in UC Berkeley’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in the spring 2010 semester.
