Eric Davis, PE

Position:

Eric joined MCE in 2015 after a stint as a special inspector at a testing agency, where he gained practical experience testing soils and concrete. New construction and the modification of existing structures each have their own set of design challenges, and Eric has experience with both. He has been involved in projects of many sizes; brand new podium-slab structures down to remodels of existing single-family homes. Eric has also worked on specialized projects such as fall protection on Washington state ferries, seismic evaluations of existing structures, and in-place augmentation of concrete floor slabs. 
 
This breadth of experience means Eric is comfortable designing in concrete, steel, and traditional wood-framing. Eric also provided construction administration services on Central City Concern's new campus in East Portland, eagerly and effectively coordinating and adjusting his designs as conditions changed through the life of the project. Eric takes pride in explaining the "whys" of his designs and in finding creative solutions that work within existing structures.
 

Education: Bachelor of Science, Civil Engineering, Portland State University

Specialties:

  • Podium Construction
  • Post-Tensioned Concrete
  • Multi-Family Residential
