Scott is a licensed professional engineer with fifteen years of design and analysis experience.  Scott grew up on the southern Oregon coast with a family involved in construction, charter fishing, and education.  He is an Oregon State University graduate with a doctorate in engineering.  Scott also provides expert witness services as a forensic engineer and often testifies in court regarding construction issues, structural failures, and building code topics.

Engineering is the art of modelling materials we do not wholly understand, into shapes we cannot precisely analyse so as to withstand forces we cannot properly assess, in such a way that the public has no reason to suspect the extent of our ignorance.            

- Dr AR Dykes -

When engineers and quantity surveyors discuss aesthetics and architects study what cranes do we are on the right road.
