Summary of Experience:

In practice for more than twenty-five years, Paula has engineered structures of all sizes and levels of complexity. She performed as Engineer of Record for projects that included major universities, K-12 schools, community buildings, parking structures, churches, industrial facilities, hospitals, and single/multi-family residences. More recently, Paula shifted gears into a building forensics career, evaluating site defects and providing valuable and experienced insight to the cause.

In addition, Paula provides budget evaluations, pre-construction planning, peer reviews, code evaluations, sustainable structures and life cycle cost analysis, construction observation, field repairs, project quality assurance, permitting and variances consultation, feasibility studies and contract reviews.

At J.S. Held, Paula continues her professional pursuit with projects including multi-family and student housing, parking structures, commercial office and retail, healthcare, educational, private, and public works engagements including building forensics, claims, standard of care and expert witness reporting, owner representation, estimating, and constructability reviews.
