IAPMO’s Uniform Evaluation Service Hires Barry A. Johnson, PE, as Senior Engineer

The IAPMO Group is pleased to announce Barry A. Johnson, PE, has joined the Uniform Evaluation Service (UES) staff as a senior engineer.

Johnson brings nearly 30 years of technical experience in design and construction as a civil/structural engineer.

He served most recently as senior staff engineer, launching a building products listing program in addition to working on deck, guardrail, and exterior wall cladding evaluation reports and reviewing reports to the Florida building codes.

“Uniform ES is the fastest growing evaluation agency in the United States largely because of our staff’s commitment to quality, doing the right things, code knowledge, technical expertise, and of course IAPMO’s support; we are extremely pleased to add someone with such great skills and experience to our growing staff,” said Uniform ES Vice President Richard Beck. “Barry is a great addition. Our clients will benefit greatly from Barry’s communication skills, technical expertise, and code knowledge.”

Johnson earned a B.S.C.E. degree and MBA from the University of Alabama and began his engineering career with Vulcraft, a division of Nucor Corporation. He is a registered professional engineer in two states: Alabama and Florida.

“The addition of Barry Johnson confirms the Uniform ES commitment to excellence and to becoming the best and most widely accepted evaluation agency in the United States,” said Ohannes Dembekjian, senior vice president with IAPMO R&T. “Barry’s expertise will allow Uniform ES to service a wider range of clients who are seeking detailed, professional evaluation reports.”

“I am excited to be part of the Uniform ES team and looking forward to continuing my relationships within the building community,” Johnson said. “It has always been rewarding to help manufacturers gain a wider entry into the marketplace and to work with the building safety and design professionals to make their jobs easier.”
