Director, Critical Structures and Facilities at Structural Integrity Associates
Andy Coughlin joined Structural Integrity Associates (SI) in 2017 during their acquisition of Tobolski Watkins Engineering. Andy had established a Northern California practice for Tobolski Watkins and helped further their expertise in extreme loading and design of structures. Andy’s approach is to utilize first principals of science to quickly turn an engineering challenge from possibility to reality. He has designed seismic and bomb blast protection at multiple embassies and military installations abroad, and has traveled to places such as Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Finland, and South Korea, and many government, nuclear, and military installations stateside to implement these designs. Now at SI, Andy continues his record of client services and is championing a balanced approach of utilizing high-fidelity characterization, laboratory testing, and in-house software tools to quickly deliver cost-saving solutions to clients in multiple industries.
