Steven B. Tipping Scholarship Fund (2017-08-22)

Thank you for the words and thoughts that so many of you extended to the Tipping family and Tipping Structural Engineers upon Steve Tipping's all-too-early passing. We are all deeply, deeply touched by the tremendous outpouring of support from the AEC and development community, from all Steve's friends and colleagues. He meant so much to so many; we still marvel as we continue to discover just how he benefited, mentored, taught, and inspired throughout his life.

A scholarship fund in Steve's name is being established through SEAONC. If you'd like to make a donation in his honor, please send email to scholarship[at]tippingstructural[dot]com and we'll get you the necessary information.

FOUNDER STEVEN B. TIPPING, 1947 - 2017 (2017-08-21)

With the saddest of hearts, we share the news that Steven B. Tipping, founder of Tipping Structural Engineers, passed away suddenly on August 11, 2017.

Steve was a brilliant engineer, an unstoppable innovator, a trusted advisor, a teacher, a mentor, a leader, and – above all – a devoted father and husband. Undaunted by challenge, Steve inspired those of us he led with his optimism and courage. His spirit of play and pursuit of adventures in structural engineering created the vibrant office culture that we so cherish and enjoy. He strove to empathetically serve his clients and to create a better world through his craft and profession. We will miss him very much.

All of us at Tipping are committed to taking to heart the wise lessons he imparted, following his example, and unstintingly working toward the vision he inspired, serving the clients and projects he loved.
