Frederick Thomas Legge has structural engineering design experience in Great Britain and in the U.S. Fred has extensive knowledge of a variety of structural materials and building types. His primary expertise is in structural steelwork. He is experienced in client/vendor negotiations at all stages of contract development and execution, and is current on design codes in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Selected projects:

  • Fired Heater    Structural design and detailing for a fired heater project located in the Philippines. Coordinated engineering efforts between the U.S. prime contractor, and the local constructor.

  • Resource Recovery Project   Managed Structural and Project engineering for a two-stream 1200 ton/day resource recovery project located in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. Worked closely with the Project director, Project and Construction Managers, coordinating engineering among the client, vendors, and the engineering office in England.

  • Waste Heat Boiler   Responsible for coordination among engineering disciplines located in England, vendor (manufacturer) located in Italy, and the client at Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia, to assure compliance with specifications which were based on U.S. codes.

  • Ethylene Cracking    Responsible for structural engineering and engineering coordination for seven ethylene cracking furnaces erected in Baytown, Texas. Supervised engineering and detailing from the offices of the steelwork fabricator.

  • Flare System   Managed Structural and Project engineering for ground and elevated flares, together with an incinerator for liquids, and associated pipework. This project is located at St. Fergus, Scotland.

  • Fired Heater   Supervised the steelwork engineering and drafting for this project located in Nanticoke, Canada, from a resident position in the offices of the steelwork fabricator in Toronto.

  • Resource Recovery Project   Coordinated the structural engineering with other disciplines for this project located in Burnaby, Canada. Developed and operated a scheduling/monitoring system to track progress of the project, and to measure the extent of completion.

Fred graduated with a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Aston in Birmingham. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
