Timothy Lack, PE
Principal, Structural Engineering
As a seasoned manager and longspan structure specialist, Tim has worked on numerous large projects involving complex structures and schedules. Among his longspan projects are arenas and sports facilities, airports and convention centers. Tim has completed structural design for many of the firm’s premiere projects, as well, such as higher education facilities, medical centers, cultural arts complexes and office buildings.
Tim’s involvement with expansive structures stems from his grasp of the nuances of longspan trusses: how the members connect and how force is applied to each truss. Notable projects include Chase Field Ballpark (formerly Bank One) featuring the first retractable stadium roof in America, and Bangkok International Airport, which has a massive longspan terminal roof.
More recently, Tim has begun to apply his rich project experience and strong communication skills to business development for Martin/Martin. Tim sustains professional relationships through a blend of well-honed technical skills, and his tendency to think like both an engineer and an architect. He embraces creativity, collaboration and the dichotomy of the professionals with whom he works.
Tim also welcomes new technology and novel project delivery methods. For many years he was a champion at Martin/Martin for the advancement of integrated project design that tapped into the firm’s extensive building information modeling capabilities.
Tim employs many of his interests and skills for one of his favorite hobbies: construction. He designed and built his own log home, and did the site development. He takes advantage of the mountain lifestyle by skiing, fishing and biking.
