SME: Dave Adams

Sustainable development is still a relatively new field of research and implementation for the design and construction communities. Civil and structural engineers need to be aware of tools and strategies that are available to help achieve sustainability goals and to participate in decision-making. Additionally, engineers need to be aware of ethical responsibilities and perceptions -- a standard of perfection is not required, but a general knowledge base is routinely expected from licensing agencies.

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT: Dave Adams
Dave Adams has been practicing structural engineering since graduation from the University of California, San Diego in 1990. He is currently a Principal Associate with BWE in San Diego, CA, and continues to serve as a subject matter expert for the California engineer's licensing board (BPELSG). He regularly designs and details structures of all materials and collaborates with other engineers and draftspersons. Dave also investigates structural failures or damage for a variety of building types and has written comprehensive reports to summarize findings and retrofit recommendation. Mr. Adams is actively involved in the engineering community through committee membership, paper publication, and student mentoring.
