Jim Houlette – Director of Structural Engineering
Mr. Houlette has extensive professional experience in structural engineering design and management of various wood structures from custom homes and multi-family housing to commercial projects using concrete, steel and CMU block.
He started his experience working in the field during the summers while attending college by inspecting soil and asphalt conditions, rebar placement, and concrete testing. Since graduating he was quickly assigned projects to design and to manage a production team. With many projects successfully completed James now oversees all operations of the structural department.
