Commercial Line Engineer
Chris Cioffi joined IBHS in 2016 as the Commercial Line Engineer for the FORTIFIED Commercial Program. He previously worked at TLC Engineering for Architecture where he provided structural engineering design services for a variety of projects, including the design of the new St. Pete Pier and Doral Legacy Park. He also trained interns and colleagues in the utilization of design platforms. While a student at Pennsylvania State University, Chris worked as a research assistant in the Architectural Engineering Structure Lab. Among other skills and experiences, Chris has conducted structural analysis of steel, concrete, engineered wood and masonry structures; used structural analysis programs to model design and convey structural stability; and visited construction sites to analyze existing structures, monitor current construction, and determine if additional services might be needed. Along with his work on the FORTIFIED Commercial program, he consults with the Research Center team on commercial structure testing, and collaborates with the business protection unit to provide membership-focused resources.
Chris has a bachelor of architectural engineering degree with a concentration in structural engineering, and a minor in architecture studies, from Penn State.
