Summary

Jon Lankin brings nearly three decades of project experience to our wind engineering team. RWDI clients undertaking arena and stadium projects benefit from Jon’s deep expertise in the behaviour of these structures. His experience is evidenced not only by his project record, which extends across North America, the UK and Asia, but also by his journal publications on relevant phenomena such as turf microclimates and wind effects on stadia. In addition to his specialization in stadium and arena design, Jon has considerable experience with high-rise structures and cable-stayed bridges. He is knowledgeable about structural and cladding wind loads, and has published technical articles on complex wind phenomena such as wind-induced cable vibrations.
