We would like to welcome the newest member of the team, Junior Structural Engineer, Matt Wilkerson! 

Matt found his love for engineering when he was very young, always wondering how skyscrapers were designed and constructed. This curiosity led him to UAB for his civil engineering degree and now a career that allows him to design his own skyscrapers and buildings. 

-What do you like about the company culture? 
So far, the family feel of being able to ask questions to anyone in the office and getting answers.

-Where is the best place you’ve traveled too? 
Bar Harbor, Maine. It had a good combination of things to do like whale tours off the coast and the peaceful Acadia National Park was awesome to hike and bike through.

-What is the next big thing on your bucket list? 
To visit every baseball stadium in America. I’m at 12 of 30! 

-Which cartoon character would you most wish to swap lives with?

#meettheteam - Our employee spotlight this week is Vice President, Civil Engineering, Ben Watson, P.E.!

“I started with Live Oak in July 2021 to oversee the civil engineering department for the Birmingham office. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 1999 and have been practicing Civil Engineering for the last 20+ years.  What I enjoy most about what I do is being able to take a raw piece of land and help develop it into something that people will benefit from. Many of my projects consist of residential subdivisions for first time home buyers."

•What is your favorite part about working for Live Oak 

“The people I work with make it a joy to come into the office everyday”

•What projects are you working on right now?

“We are just starting a 330-lot residential subdivision just outside of Pell City. Stay tuned!” 

•Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?

“Pompeii – amazing to see the construction that was build 2000 years ago which was preserved by the volcanic ash.”

•Do you have a favorite quote?

“It's not our job to get people to heaven.  It's our job to get heaven to people.” - Dr. Shannon Karafanda

•What is the most important thing you have learned in the last five years?

“Enjoy the time you have with your kids while they are small, once they leave home you can never get that time back.”

•What is the first concert you attended? 

“Alabama at Bryant Denny Stadium (homecoming 1980ish)”

I fully trust Patrick and his team to give me a flexible, working design with support when structural models do not mirror architectural models. His drawings are clear and concise, and his team is readily available when issues arise.

Robert Abney, Division President, F.L. Crane & Sons, Inc.

Patrick and his staff are always willing to explore design options that could potentially be a cost savings option for us. They have great service and are always responsive if any problems arise.

Ray Pruitt, Division President, F.L. Crane & Sons, Inc.

[Live Oak] takes the project budget seriously, treating it as if it [were their] own, resulting in efficiently engineered structures that serve the needs of our clients. Live Oak meets project schedules and budgets, and they do not mind the inevitable last-minute change.

David J. Hardy, Principal, Eley Guild Hardy Architects, PA

The personal attention paid to their clients and projects is only surpassed by their quality of work. I would highly recommend Live Oak Engineering to anyone looking for a quality and personal experience.
