Structural Engineer

Jerry D. Coombs, PE

Structural Engineer

As the Founder and President of Coombs Engineering, I have spent the past 40 years in Structural Engineering Analysis and Design. I have a BS in Engineering from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, and a Master’s in Business Administration from Webster University, which has provided the successful foundation for my career and my company. I developed my career working for various engineering companies gaining valuable experience in design for retail, office, parking, mid- and low-rise, industrial, hospital, and roadway structures, and even the aircraft industry. I took the many factions for the industry to provide the best service I can for clients.

In 2009, I founded Coombs Engineering and met with instant success. I find that leading the company is even more satisfying than providing just the services. It is a pleasure working with the clients and co-workers as we watch the company grow.

Coombs Engineering’s proficiencies are quite diverse, including expertise in Structural Steel, Reinforced Concrete, Wood Design, and Masonry, serving the Residential, Foundations (including deep foundations, Slabs, Soil interaction), Forensic Assessment, and Code Administration industries.

I am registered in eight states (New Mexico, Texas, California, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Nebraska) and am skilled in structural projects that include residential, commercial, and industrial. Coombs Engineering is licensed in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. We are particularly adept at assessing and designing for geotechnical-related projects and are well-versed in identifying and assessing forensic, structural, and design failures. We offer a plethora of options to remedy your difficult situations.

Coombs Engineering has experience in designing various buildings and structures from most common building materials. We also offer a unique service not typically found at our competitors—professional and legal testimony, depositions, and investigation reports. Our industry affiliations include: American Concrete Institute, Structural Engineers Association, American Society of Civil Engineers, Concrete Foundations Association, and the International Code Council. Our goal is to provide high quality solutions for your structural challenges, on-point, on budget, and on time. I welcome your inquiries and look forward to building a long-term partnership with you.
