Bryan W. Lindfors, P.E.
Bryan has over thirty years of experience structural engineering and is Licensed in Michigan. He has a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Michigan Technological University and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering from Washington State University.
After college, he gained extensive experience with concrete design and construction while working for a parking structure consultant in Kalamazoo. Those projects included numerous multi-story, pre-stressed concrete parking structures constructed throughout the mid-west. As experience and career demands increased, the desire to obtain a different work-life balance led him to Performance Engineers in 1998, where he worked for 14 years. While at Performance, he served as the project manager and structural engineer for several steel, masonry, concrete and timber-framed commercial and residential building projects. He also has completed forensic investigations, due diligence, and expert witness trial testimony experience. Bryan rejoined Performance in the spring of 2022 following a nine and a half year hiatus. During this time, he worked as a technical resource engineer; advising and educating owners, engineers, and manufacturers about the application and design of precast concrete modular block and mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls, and as the in-house structural engineer for a high-end home designer
