We are looking for someone who has access to SAP2000 version 15.0 or higher and is comfortable designing/analyzing wood and steel structural system using the software. Experience with wood product (TJI, Glulam Beams) and AISC steel shape is helpful but not required. Access to or acknowledge of ASCE 7-10 minimum design loads for buildings is also a plus.

You should have experience with wind loading analysis on low-rise residential/commercial building and designing the corresponding steel lateral force resistance system (LFRS). Your job will involve making assumptions in the analysis of the wind loading on a spherical surface based on ASCE 7-10 and choosing a LFRS type that is both robust and economical.
