Paul Doak, PE, SE, LEED AP

Principal, Structural Engineering

Paul has high standards. As a principal-in-charge he expects the very best from himself and his project managers. He knows if he is not satisfied, the client won’t be satisfied. While he has worked on a range of structural systems for a variety of clients and facilities, Paul has extensive experience in government projects, such as those for the National Park Service; higher education projects, and tensioned-fabric structures.

Each of Paul’s specialties requires the expertise he has honed during the past three decades. He understands that limited change orders, on-time delivery and quality documents are a priority to clients. Institutional clients place importance on project lifespan and low maintenance requirements. It is Paul’s grasp of such intricacies that brings repeat work.

Whatever the project type, Paul looks for creative ways to develop alternate structural design systems that meet or exceed expectations, yet are economical. An example is the design of a post-tensioned water tank for Triview Metropolitan District in Monument. The post-tensioned system was selected because it used fewer materials and cost less. Other notable projects are Coors Field because it was such a collaborative project, and the Daniel L. Ritchie Center at the University of Denver, which set high standard for all other DU building projects.

Paul has been with Martin/Martin since 1981 (KKBNA 1981-1988) and is a member of the structural department Management Team. He grew up in Gunnison and returns to the mountains to relax by fishing, skiing and hunting.
