Andrew Zafrin, SE

Associate Principal

Specializing in the technological aspects of structural design, Andrew applies his education and experience to collaborative thinking, providing exceptional value to design and construction teams.

Highlights:

  • Use of Autodesk Revit BIM software to configure, analyze, and provide construction support for structures with high technical difficulty
  • Design of panelized framing systems and using experimental building materials with consideration of reduced construction waste and renewable resources

With structures ranging from ultra-modern residences to traditional commercial projects, from educational facilities to hospitals and other public structures, Andrew maximizes the advantages of BIM (Building Information Modeling) to produce efficient and real-world constructible projects.

“My interest in structural engineering developed at an early age while watching my grandfather practice architecture, where I developed a curiosity to understand the bones behind the completed architectural appearance.”
