About Us

REDD Engineering consists of four NAU seniors that are graduating in May or December 2006.

Robert McFadden

                 Robert McFadden has four years experience in residential development.  During this time he gained extensive knowledge in surveying, roadway construction and concrete. He is currently a Northern Arizona University student studying Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Geotechnical engineering.  Mr. McFadden is also the Chief Engineer for REDD Engineering.  His duties on this project will include the management and supervision of the design of this project by overseeing the structural, geotechnical, and hydrological designs and analyses.



Eric Thornbrew

                 Eric Thornbrew is currently a Civil Engineering with an emphasis in Structural Engineering at Northern Arizona University.  He has been working for Snow and Associates as a subcontracted staff engineer for the past year. This work includes structural design for residential and business projects.  During his time with Snow and Associates he received training on the structural programs COSMOS and SAP2000 as well as the drafting program AutoCAD.  On this project Mr. Thornbrew will manage all of the structural design and will be responsible for any field technician work with Dan Hall.



Dan Hall

Dan Hall is going to be responsible for a majority of the AutoCAD drafting on this project.  Mr. Hall has eight years of professional drafting and design experience, with both civil engineering and architectural firms.  Mr. Hall is a senior civil engineering student with an emphasis in structures.  He will also be contributing to the structural design.  Mr. Hall also has an extensive background in construction, this will add in preparing a design that is reasonable to construct.



Darren Begay

Darren Begay is a student at Northern Arizona University and is pursuing a Civil Engineering degree, with an emphasis in Structural Engineering.  He has been working in construction as a carpenter, for the past five years.  Darren also has experience in both the residential and commercial aspects of construction.  As a construction worker he is skilled in wood framing, form building, and blue print reading. On this project Darren will assist with the structural, and geotechnical designs for this project.
