Meet Dave

Community involvement and leadership are two recognizable contributions Dave makes as a structural engineering principal in the Spokane office. He is committed to organizations that help build better, safer communities with a focus on the healthcare industry. Dave gives each his full attention to each project, large or small, and is committed to their success by being present from start to finish.

Many years of experience gives Dave the knowledge and expertise required to lead a team of engineers on large projects like the major expansions at Sacred Heart Medical Center. One of the area’s most renowned hospitals, it is recognized for its advances to medical care in the Inland Northwest and Coffman has been an integral part of their expansion plans and upgrades through the years. Complex designs and construction like the projects at healthcare facilities require a seasoned leader and one that can marry ingenuity and an out of the box approach to typical engineering design processes. This approach along with his dedication to the project brings success to our clients and provides mentorship opportunities to younger engineers.
