Karl TelleenSenior Engineer | SE, LEED AP
Karl Telleen brings twelve years of diverse experience encompassing design practice and research. His work spans a range of project types, including design of new steel and concrete structures, seismic evaluation and retrofit of existing buildings, seismic peer review of high-rise buildings, and design and analysis of solar arrays subjected to wind and seismic forces.
In 2010, he completed a Fulbright Fellowship studying structural design and high-performance concrete materials in Switzerland. He performed post-earthquake reconnaissance work studying concrete buildings in Haiti following the January 2010 earthquake, and he participated in the ATC-94 project Seismic Performance of Reinforced Concrete Buildings in the 2010 Chile Earthquake.
Karl served as Director and Treasurer of the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California (SEAONC). He serves on the SEAOC Solar Photovoltaic Systems Committee and co-authored updates and design examples for the SEAOC PV2 Report Wind Design for Low-Profile Solar Photovoltaic Arrays on Flat Roofs. He co-authored the Structural Engineers Association of California (SEAOC) Structural/Seismic Design Manual concrete wall examples, and papers in the journals Earthquake Spectra, Concrete International, and the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering.
