“I had the privilege to work closely with Patrick and the Wilson Ihrig team on a very complicated and controversial construction vibration monitoring project. As project manager, I had to call Patrick and his team multiple times to perform emergency checks of the vibration monitoring equipment and crack gauges installed in multiple historic buildings along the mile long project site. Patrick and his team always showed a high level of expertise, professionalism, and were 100% reliable and dependable. As I worked with Patrick in person and saw him as a very dedicated individual with a high level of attention to detail. It was great to have him on our team and he and the Wilson Ihrig team were a huge part in the fantastic success (and praise by City staff) of this project’s vibration monitoring effort.”

Patrick Faner, Associate

Patrick joined Wilson Ihrig in 2007, and works on projects involving rail transit systems, highways, transit-oriented development, environmental noise, building isolation, and isolation of sensitive medical equipment. He has experience using geospatial analysis software to model outdoor noise and vibration propagation. He also has experience predicting vibration levels in buildings using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). His work has included field measurements of noise and vibration, engineering analyses to determine impacts and methods of control, and report preparation.  He is proficient in the use of ArcGIS, SoundPLAN, Traffic Noise Model (TNM), Enhanced Acoustic Simulator for Engineers (EASE), MATLAB, Visual Basic, C++, LabView, and AutoCAD.
