Experience

Since joining WJE in 2012, Tyler Stillings has worked on a wide variety of projects involving the evaluation of existing structures and architectural components. His work has included load capacity evaluations, fire damage assessments, water leakage testing of several different architectural systems, and facade condition assessments. Mr. Stillings has also played a significant role in the company’s largest project to date, involving on-site inspections, statistical analysis, and structural repair designs.   

While an undergraduate student at the University of Cincinnati, Mr. Stillings worked as an engineering co-op with the Shimizu Corporation in Tokyo, Japan. His graduate research involved evaluation and destructive load testing of a decommissioned adjacent precast, prestressed concrete box girder bridge.
