Ever since Atallah was a teenager, he has been close to construction projects. “Structural engineering doesn’t just take an understanding of the mechanics of materials’ behavior—it also involves considering constructability and the interaction between trade and technical,” he says. “My inspiration for structural engineering comes from these combinations.”
When Atallah started working at CE Solutions in 2011, he “brought the band back together.” He had worked with both Steve Osborn and JD Taylor when they were employed at different firms.
Atallah loves structural engineering because it allows him to solve problems and collaborate with clients. His strengths include his ability to understand the present by researching the past, his strategic perspective, and his ability to analyze all factors affecting situations.
When he’s not spending time with his family and traveling, Atallah considers himself a “research addict,” diving in to issues relating to information systems and technology.
