Timothy A. Gregor

Associate III

 
Experience

Since joining WJE, Timothy Gregor has specialized in the repair and rehabilitation of concrete structures and their waterproofing systems including prestressed, post-tensioned, and conventionally reinforced. He also has extensive experience in structural condition assessments, repair design, and construction observation services related to steel structures. In addition, Mr. Gregor has been involved in the on-site load testing of multiple structures.

Prior to joining WJE, Mr. Gregor studied the seismic application of bracing steel-framed structures with reinforced concrete masonry panels through experimental tests and computational system analyses as a doctoral student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He designed, oversaw construction of, instrumented, and tested large-scale specimens. Mr. Gregor used the experimental data to calibrate analytical models that evaluated the selection of seismic design parameters for a new structural system.

REPRESENTATIVE PROJECTS

Repair and Rehabilitation
