Mr. Westermann has 37 years of experience in the field of structural engineering. He has worked on hotels, hospitals, schools, commercial and industrial buildings, casinos, telecommunication facilities, and airline facilities. He has worked with timber, concrete masonry, structural steel, reinforced concrete and tilt-up. At Interactive Resources, he is responsible for overseeing the design from conception to completion.  Mr. Westermann also has extensive experience providing structural engineering services for solar photovoltaic array projects.

Paul has also been responsible for overseeing the structural design of all roof-mounted and ground-mounted PV arrays from conception to completion of construction. Conforming to code requirements for wind and seismic forces is the basis of permitting for jurisdictional agencies. Often, the local fire marshal will also have requirements for access. Paul typically visits the site to assess existing conditions, reviews as-built drawings of existing buildings, if available, and provides verification of load capability and design of attachment. For K-12 and community college projects in California, plan check is the responsibility of the DSA, which has its own unique set of requirements.
