Anna J. Quinn

Associate III


Since joining WJE, Anna Quinn has been involved in the condition assessment, structural evaluation, and repair design of concrete and steel structures. She has experience in assessing and evaluating finishing-related defects and problems associated with new concrete construction, as well as performing various concrete and steel structural failure investigations. Ms. Quinn prepares construction documents involving repair designs and has experience utilizing destructive and nondestructive testing techniques.

Prior to joining WJE, Ms. Quinn worked as a graduate research assistant at Auburn University, where she studied the effects of vehicular braking in highway bridge substructures for typical Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) short-span bridges. She created an analytical model to determine the shear force in the substructure and calibrated the model to static pull tests and dynamic braking tests conducted on a short-span bridge typical of ALDOT construction.
