Julie joined us in 2013 after spending more than a year in Europe studying structural engineering and analysis of historic architecture. Now a Professional Engineer, Julie brings with her more than eight years of experience working on a variety of new design and preservation projects throughout the Greater New York City area and abroad.
Originally from the Midwest, she earned her Bachelors in Architecture as well as her Bachelors of Science in Architectural Engineering from the University of Kansas before coming to New York City to complete the Historic Preservation program at Columbia University.
She is passionately interested in the evaluation and strengthening design of existing buildings and she loves the challenges presented when Julie joined us in 2013 after spending more than a year in Europe studying structural engineering and working with traditional construction, both historic and non-historic (and she doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty either!). She strives for high-quality design and structural evaluation based on the US Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Historic Preservation, and believes this approach to be a solid background for engaging in preservation work.
TEAM MURRAY consists of a group of design professionals, which includes engineers, architectural consultants, CAD operators and code specialists, whith diversified backgrounds and expertise.
