“IT’S SOMETIMES EASY TO FORGET HOW POWERFUL GOOD DESIGN CAN BE, NOT JUST FOR THE FEW, BUT FOR THE MANY. MOST PEOPLE SPEND 80-90% OF THEIR LIVES INSIDE BUILDINGS. THE CHOICES WE MAKE ARE IMPORTANT.”

Tanya Luthi is a Vice President at Entuitive with over 13 years of experience in the structural engineering industry. She began her career in New York City, focused on large-scale institutional projects in steel and concrete. Her work included the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia as well as renovation and new construction projects at the NYU Langone Medical Center.

After moving to Vancouver in 2011, she discovered a love for mass timber design, fueled by her work on the Mountain Equipment Co-op head office building, one of the largest contemporary mass timber buildings in Canada. Based on this experience, she co-authored the US and Canadian Nail-Laminated Timber Design and Construction Guides, and she began speaking widely on the topic of mass timber to both students and industry professionals.

Tanya returned to New York in 2016 and became involved in the development of building codes, serving as an active member of the NYC structural code committee and advocating for the wider adoption of mass timber. She also served on the structural work group of the ICC Ad-Hoc Committee on Tall Wood Buildings, which successfully introduced increased height limits on mass timber buildings to the 2021 International Building Code.

Tanya’s commitment to building strong relationships and nurturing a diverse generation of future industry leaders continues to inspire her in all she does.
