Jefferey J. Reese, P.E.
Mr. Reese has over eight years of experience in structural engineering. Specializing in wood-frame construction and both single-family and multi-family residential projects, he also has experience that includes new and existing commercial, retail, and educational projects constructed of a variety of materials. Mr. Reese is proficient in the use of structural software used for modeling large or complicated structural systems, and has a strong knowledge of spreadsheet design and Visual Basic for Applications, which he has used to create a program making the complicated formulas of wood connection design simple to use.

Two Edgewater Drive, Norwood, MA – selective analysis of the existing steel and concrete framed structure, and extensive design, detailing, and construction administration for strengthening the structure for the conversion of a 1980’s office building into new laboratory space for a pharmaceutical and diagnostics company, including new rooftop mechanical units.
Mount Auburn Cemetery Footbridge, Cambridge, MA –analysis of an existing concrete framed footbridge and roof over crypts for determining whether the structures could support additional paving materials and small cemetery maintenance and construction vehicles.
Ebsco Retaining Walls, Ipswich, MA – design of two types of walls for approximately 340 lineal feet of new site retaining walls for a new surface parking lot for a publishing company.
Condominiums at 974-984 Main St., Wakefield, MA – complete analysis, design, and detailing for a new three-story condominium building with wood framed upper floors and a steel and concrete framed 1st floor over parking.
Greenwich Childcare, Greenwich, CT – complete analysis, design, detailing and construction administration for the renovation of an existing wood-framed convent into a childcare facility.
1131 Sasco Hill Road Residence, Fairfield, CT – complete analysis, design, detailing and construction administration for a new residence with approximately 17,900 square feet of habitable space. So that multiple floors could be framed simultaneously, the entire skeleton of the structure was framed of structural steel, and wood joists were in-filled between steel beams.
274 Pine Creek Avenue Residence, Fairfield, CT – complete analysis, design, detailing and construction administration for a new modern-style residence in a coastal flood “A” zone with deep timber pile and grade beam foundations. Building irregularities such as the long roof cantilevers prohibited use of the residential building code, and the coastal location prompted the use of high wind loads for design. The entire front and rear elevations of the long, narrow residence were windows that wrapped around the sides of the house, and the open-space floor plans did not allow for the use of interior shear walls, so steel moment frames were used to resist wind loads. Steel plates sandwiched between wood members were used as columns to accommodate thin window mullions.
