Brad Cheshire PE

Principal / Structural Engineering Director


As Director of the Structural Engineering Department for Page, Brad Cheshire is responsible for every phase of the structural design process for all the firm’s projects. He has extensive experience in analyzing complex structures for a wide range of project types, including facilities for commercial, industrial, manufacturing, advanced technology, institutional, and healthcare clients. His engineering experience also encompasses structures constructed of concrete, steel, wood, and masonry systems, as well as designing for high-load conditions.

Brad emphasizes teamwork in his approach to all projects. “Collaboration is in my mind the primary reason my department exists at Page,” he says. “We have the opportunity to achieve collaboration on projects in ways that simply are not feasible with outside consultants.”

Among his many projects with Page, his favorite so far is the Texas Instruments Richardson Fab. “This was the most well-organized project that I have worked on at Page. We had a super team architecturally at all levels and very dedicated focus from all engineering disciplines,” Brad says. “This was also a very complex and challenging project that was a pioneer in the LEED movement.”

Also known as Texas Instruments RFAB, the 1.1 million-square-foot, state-of-the-art complex became the first wafer fabrication facility to receive a LEED designation when its two buildings achieved Gold LEED. Brad’s team constantly explored innovative concepts for the project, testing and re-testing to conserve natural resources and energy throughout the design, construction, and occupancy phases.
