Mr. Head has more than 35 years of structural engineering analysis, design and project/construction management experience throughout Saudi Arabia and the United States ranging from the design of new facilities, strengthening, renovation, retrofitting and repair of existing structures in the GMP, Design/Bid and Design/Bid/Build delivery method and conducting forensic investigations.
In these 35+ years he has been primarily engaged in the design and construction of building structures. During that time he has seen the good and the bad, what works and what doesn't and has seen the design and the construction processes change dramatically.
On the rare occasions when codes or standards are not met, structural materials are under strength, extraordinary loads are experienced on the structure or safety methods on site prove to be inadequate, he is available to assist attorneys, insurance companies, contractors, architects, engineers, owners and developers in determining the reasons that the structural systems under-performed and, where possible, how to efficiently return the facility to fulfill its intended function.
His investigation, design and construction experience make him highly qualified to engage in forensic investigations and to assist the design, construction and legal communities in analyzing problems and determining how to address and solve them.
