ZAPATA is pleased to announce the return of Mr. Coy Patton. The Structural EI began his engineering career when he served as a summer intern at ZAPATA in 2017.

During his leave, Mr. Patton graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering. He gained additional on-the-job structural engineering experience through work with other employers; this included bridge inspections and bridge designs for new and replacement bridges. His responsibilities involved detailing superstructure and substructure elements, deck designs, and geometric layouts.

At ZAPATA, Mr. Patton provides structural designs for a variety of projects that include new buildings and infrastructure construction, structural upgrades, and military/commercial/industrial renovations. He prepares specifications and construction cost estimates, conducts site visits to document conditions, and performs structural analysis and forensic investigations. Mr. Patton will continue to refine his methods of structural analysis and structural steel design.
