Marianne is a licensed professional engineer with design and assessment experience on healthcare, corporate, educational, religious, community, municipal, energy, transportation, commercial and retail building types. In addition to new buildings, additions and renovations, she is also experienced in non-building structures including equipment supports, pipe support trestles and retaining walls. She has specific expertise in structural steel, concrete, wood and masonry with responsibility for structural coordination with other disciplines, shop drawing submittal review, and construction observations to determine general conformance with structural documents.

Marianne has extensive experience in analyzing existing building structures, the oldest dating back to 1868. She is skilled at reviewing historic building drawings and researching materials and building codes compatible to the time of construction. When there are no existing drawings, she coordinates with testing agencies to determine the composition and strength of existing materials so that structures can be analyzed. She conducts condition and defect assessments of building structures and develops remedial solutions.

At J.S. Held, Marianne provides standard of care reviews, constructability/peer reviews, construction process and procurement assessment services, building envelope consultation services including design review, quality assurance and oversight, as well as forensics investigation and remediation support.
