Associate III


Stephanie Shin joined WJE in 2016 and has worked on various projects in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area—with a primary focus on the building envelope—including building enclosure peer review, design assistance, investigations, facade condition assessment, and construction period services. Ms. Shin has also been engaged in field testing for air infiltration and water penetration resistance testing, both in a forensic capacity and in the context of new construction, using ASTM and AAMA voluntary guide specifications and test standards, as well as low-voltage electronic leak detection methods and moisture surveying—using electrical impedance scanners for use at new roofing and waterproofing membranes.

Ms. Shin has also worked with various building facade materials and systems, including sheet-applied waterproofing, hot fluid-applied rubberized asphalt waterproofing/roofing, precast concrete, glazed aluminum curtain wall, and metal wall panels.
