Meet Jeff

Jeff is a principal and licensed structural engineer in our Spokane office. He manages our structural department and leads the structural industrial group. Jeff’s industrial background includes design of cranes, crane runway systems, fleet facilities, fall protection, paint hangars, grain bins, aluminum manufacturing facilities, mobile and overland mining equipment, concrete reservoirs, shoring, mining facilities, bridge travelers, elevated platforms, gas piping support and structures, and construction engineering at dams and bridges. He also works closely with our mechanical industrial department on complex structures and equipment that require a combination of finite element and matrix structural analysis. In addition to Jeff’s industrial background he also has experience with DoD, commercial, healthcare, emergency services, higher-ed, and multi-family residential structures.

As an experienced project manager, Jeff maintains an ongoing line of communication between the owner and/or contractor from project inception through completion and emphasizes attention to design detail and project constructability. His ability to understand the owners’ and contractors’ needs and problems, as well as providing timely construction support, makes him a valuable part of the construction team.

Jeff focuses a significant amount of time to the health of Coffman’s culture. At Coffman, we care about the complete individual, not just the employee. Jeff provides mentorship to multiple individuals in the company and is truly invested in their success and happiness both at Coffman and in life.
