Mr. Schroeder is the Director of our Southern California Office. His hands-on approach to solving structural engineering problems and his ability to clearly communicate his ideas has attracted a diverse set of building owners, contractors and architectural clients to our firm. He balances their needs with his understanding of structural behavior, methods of construction and building code requirements to develop cost effective solutions for each engineering assignment.

He has engineered a broad array of retail, theme park, office building, residential, hospitality, heavy industrial, healthcare, and civil engineering structures. In addition, he has designed many specialty structures, such as cold formed metal framing systems, planetarium domes, vibratory equipment supports and slope stabilization systems. As a forensic structural engineer he has evaluated the performance of existing structures exposed to earthquake loads and other varying loading conditions, including thermal and shrinkage effects. He has taught structural engineering design courses at the University of California in Irvine and has published papers in the field of structural engineering.
