Personal Background of Greg Dende


Detail your services


I  have over 45 years of diversified engineering experience in structural  design and project management for the building market.  Beginning my  career as an entry level engineer for Northeastern Engineering Co., of  Clarks Summit, PA: A full service design firm, I assumed various  positions and responsibilities in this and subsequent major firms.

M.L. Claster & Sons Steel Division, Williamsport, PA: Assistant to Structural Engineer and later, Structural Engineer.

Triangle Steel, Inc., Ithaca, NY: Chief Engineer, Project Manager, Director of Project Management.

R.A. DiPasquale & Associates, Ithaca, NY:  The position of Associate, in the capacity of Structural Engineer.

The unique combination of providing engineering for firms operating in the constructions market  as well as the design market has provided a well-balanced education and  experience that many experts hold paramount. Design plus construction  provide quality projects.

My  private practice as a structural consultant began in 1987 as I saw a  need for a strong structural engineering service for the immediate areas  of Ithaca, Cortland, Elmira, Corning and beyond.

My  client base and project record is as extensive and wide ranged as is my  experience, and generally serves the building community of major  commercial, institutional and industrial organizations of the area. This  includes Architectural/Engineering design teams or specific consultant  work.

Having  maintained much of the latest technology available in engineering today  and blending in pre-existing technologies that are favorable to earlier  buildings has proven useful for a wide variety of projects.
