Stephen G. Sheffield has advanced in his responsibilities at Envista as Senior Forensic Consultant, Technical Field Supervisor (responsible for the management of Envista’s civil/structural forensic engineering services within the six-state southeast region of the U.S.), and Complex Loss Engineer (handling large complex jobs). With over 30 years in structural engineering experience, Mr. Sheffield has been part of the construction industry as a structural engineer and his experience is built on design and management projects extending across the following market sectors: aviation, education, healthcare, hotels, offices, pedestrian bridges, renovations and alterations, retail, sports, structural assessments of existing buildings, and threshold building inspections. His experience covers the entire range of project development encompassing business development, maintenance of client relationships, contract negotiation, construction documents, and construction administration. The experience includes developing framing concepts and selecting appropriate framing systems, which included reinforced concrete, structural steel, precast concrete, tilt-up construction, light gage steel, concrete masonry, and timber. Mr. Sheffield also has extensive experience in the renovation and alteration of existing buildings which involve the re-configuration or strengthening of structural framing systems to accommodate expansions or additions to buildings or changes in use. Paralleling this experience with existing buildings includes performing structural assessments of buildings to determine the building’s existing structural condition, and the cause of failures and damages to the structure or building envelope using methods that included materials testing, structural analysis or in-situ load testing to determine the load carry capacities of the structure. The structural evaluations have resulted in providing the design and construction documents of structural repairs. He has also been involved in the condition assessment and renovation of historical buildings. Mr. Sheffield’s structural assessment and forensic engineering experience includes the following types of buildings or structures: amphitheaters, churches, commercial, government facilities, historic buildings, multi-family residential, offices, parking garages, retaining walls, retail shopping centers, sports facilities (which includes football, baseball and marine stadiums), boat docks, and entertainment theaters
