Mr. Van Duyne’s specialties at CTLGroup include condition assessment, repair retrofit design, finite element modeling, and construction observations for engineering projects. He also lends his expertise to engineering forensics to determine the cause and origin of structural collapses and other damage. His project experience includes field investigation of existing buildings, structural analysis of building elements and systems, dynamic analysis of structures, development of load tests for existing structures, forensic engineering and collapse investigations, litigation support and use of nondestructive testing techniques for structural evaluation.
Prior to joining CTLGroup, Mr. Van Duyne worked at various design firms where he analyzed and designed structural systems for residential high-rise buildings, structural retrofits for tenant build-outs of high-rise buildings, and structural retrofit framing and connections. He also designed precast, prestressed concrete elements for a variety of structures including parking garages and wall panel structures.
