Travis P. Green

Associate Principal

 
Experience

Since joining WJE in 2000, Travis Green’s experience has included structural investigations, evaluations, load tests, and repair designs for low- and high-rise commercial buildings and parking structures. His work has involved post-tensioned, precast, and conventionally reinforced concrete structures; wood-framed, aluminum, and light-gauge metal structures; structural steel structures; pre-engineered buildings and building components; and concrete and brick masonry wall systems. Mr. Green’s analytical work includes extensive use of computer models for research and analysis of new and existing structural systems.

Prior to joining WJE, Mr. Green worked for an architect, at a precast concrete plant, and as a research assistant at the University of California at Los Angeles. He was awarded a year-long scholarship to study architecture at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. While a research assistant at the Georgia Institute of Technology, he performed large-scale experimental testing on partially restrained composite, beam-to-column connections. Mr. Green is a certified Bridge Construction Inspection Instructor.
