Our Pacific Northwest offices continue to add key people. Our Bellingham and Bend offices recently added new team members that significantly contribute to the success of our firm. Recent PNW new hires include Rollston Frangopoulos, Jackson Kelly, and Erik Johnson.
Rollston Frangopoulos, PE - As a licensed professional engineer, Rollston has nearly a decade of experience in structural design for hospitals, K-12, wineries, residential, and commercial projects in the greater Portland area.
He has worked on many seismic renovations and upgrades, including multistory unreinforced masonry, concrete, and wood buildings. A few of Rollston’s more notable projects include the Portland Community College Newbery Center, and the Umpqua Community College Southern Oregon Wine Institute (SOWI).
In his free time off he enjoys mountain/road biking, skiing, and traveling to Greece to visit family.
Jackson Kelly, EIT - Jackson brings a creative and energetic twist to his structural engineering projects. His design experience ranges from steel support structures, concrete, & timber framed design. As a project engineer Jackson is involved in design, project management, and construction support for projects in Oregon, and throughout the west coast.
Some of Jackson’s recent projects include Hood River Town Homes that included three buildings each three stories, The Tetherow Adventure Cabins, fire damage assessment reports and remediation plans for various structures, and a three story retrofit project in San Francisco.
Erik Johnson, EIT - With strong ties to Bellingham and the PNW, Erik has recently come back to “the city of subdued excitement” to focus on sustainable structural engineering projects. Erik has a Geology degree from Western Washington University and a Civil Engineering degree from Montana State University.
Prior to joining Ashley & Vance, Erik worked as a carpenter throughout the west, a civilian engineer for the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, and as mountain climbing guide on Mt. Baker and in the Tetons. He applies the knowledge he gained from his experience to craft an exceptionally cost-conscious, practical, and efficient approach to each project.
Erik enjoys climbing, mountain biking, and sailing in Puget Sound.
