Learn about structural systems and component innovation to offer opportunities for unexpected and improved architectural design, improved aesthetics, construction cost savings, and sustainability. 




Doug Robertson is the founder of Daedalus Structural Engineering, a Bay Area firm that provides structural engineering services to the architectural community with an emphasis on creative engineering in support of great architecture. Whether the structure is completely covered by architectural finishes or an integral part of the architecture, Doug and his team believe that structure provides an opportunity to help shape the finished architecture and building envelope. In this pursuit Daedalus is focused on a collaborative approach to deliver innovative and unexpected solutions.

Doug completed his studies in structural engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder before being drawn to California with its wealth of opportunity in building design and the intrigue of seismic engineering. Over the past 30 years he has led many technologically innovative and diverse projects encompassing new building design, seismic evaluation and strengthening, and historic renovation and preservation including the base isolation of the Hearst Mining Building.

Looking to give back to the community Doug is currently a Director of the not-for-profit Architectural Foundation of San Francisco, which provides learning opportunities for high school students to learn about the built environment through hands on learning.  Doug also spent three years as member and chair of Saratoga's planning commission.


Please be sure to register for this event by January 16.










Learning Objectives:


  • New ways to look at engineering systems to provide architectural design opportunities
