Tyler Manahan P.E.
Tyler had an early introduction to the engineering world. His father worked as a mechanical designer and Tyler was exposed to AutoCAD and enjoyed going to work with his father and drawing in the program. His curiosity grew in high school where Tyler interned at the same company as his father. With the knowledge that he gained as a technician, he knew this was the field that he was interested in.
The most impactful project in Tyler’s career was a large aerospace office and lab facility. The project had multiple user groups, including United States and international groups. There were multiple layers of security and design involved in meeting everyone’s needs. This project helped Tyler understand the pre-design process and the importance of understanding the client’s needs and helping them understand the implementation of the design.
Seeing the changes in technology and the need for education on changing technology drives Tyler to become a better leader. As an Alvine Engineering Project Manager, Tyler would like to see the future of engineering continue to move toward end-user-driven satisfaction. The industry has started to move toward a bigger emphasis on the well-being of the people, using the building as a way to make that a reality. A challenge that comes with this could be the overall cost. Tyler’s goal is to help educate Owners on the value of systems and come up with solutions that work within everyone’s parameters.
