Jeremy Dye received a BS in Civil Engineering in 2009 and an MS in Civil Engineering in 2010 from Brigham Young University. With more than 13 years of experience, Jeremy is the structural division manager at Epic Engineering. He is responsible for training and mentoring up-and-coming structural engineers, coordinating workloads, and scheduling structural projects.
Jeremy works hard to develop innovations and efficiencies that help us streamline our projects. He has developed dozens of custom tools that speed up structural design. In 2015, Jeremy taught himself how to use Revit and quickly became an expert at architectural and structural modeling. He helped develop many of the templates, processes, and workflows that help us deliver projects quickly and affordably.
Jeremy has extensive experience on a wide variety of structural projects including:
- Wood, masonry, concrete, structural steel, and cold-formed steel buildings.
- Hotels, hospitals, medical clinics, schools, public safety buildings, banks, theaters, community centers, fire stations, ambulance buildings, salt sheds, libraries, warehouses, garages, pavilions, apartments, tree houses, milking barns, large custom homes, and small tract homes,
- Seismic evaluations and upgrades of existing buildings.
- Pre-engineered metal building foundations.
- Pedestrian and vehicular bridges including steel truss bridges, steel and concrete beam bridges, and suspension bridges.
- Precast and cast-in-place concrete box culverts and concrete arches.
- Rock, concrete, mechanically stabilized earth (MSE), and gabion basket retaining walls.
- Environmental structures including diversion structures, weirs, flumes, and flood control structures.
- Concrete and steel water tanks.
- Concrete vaults.
- Concrete dams and spillways.
- Foundations for communication towers.
- Manufactured home foundation certifications.
- Miscellaneous analysis and repairs.
- Special inspections and structural observations.
- Plan reviews.
In addition to his work with Epic, Jeremy is an Adjunct Professor at BYU, teaching an introduction to drafting class to freshmen civil engineering students.
Outside of work, Jeremy has no shortage of hobbies. Jeremy’s main passion at the moment is canyoneering, and he has written a guide book on the subject and has created the blog dyeclan.com to record their more than 1,600 family adventures in the outdoors. One of Jeremy’s proudest dad moment was when their 3-year old son rappelled more than 100 feet by himself. Jeremy loves escape rooms and is helping a friend design and build an escape room in Payson. Jeremy also enjoys hiking, caving, rock climbing, canoeing, and whitewater rafting. Around the house, Jeremy is always building something; his latest project was a 260-square-foot, 2-story castle playhouse with a working elevator and motorized portcullis.
