Wendell Travis Bennett, Structural Designer

Wendell Travis Bennett

Structural Designer

Over 20 years experience in structural design, Travis has proven performance in a wide variety of disciplines, software and work environments. Simultaneously raising his family and working full-time, Travis attended school in the evenings working toward his goal to become a well rounded drafter and modeler; earning three Associate’s degrees and five certifications in engineering, architectural and computer-aided design.

Functioning as lead, Travis managed multiple teams of drafters in a fast-paced, rapidly changing setting. These roles required excellent communication and organizational skills, complex file and database management, implementation of drafting standards and creation of typical details library. He’s had specialized focus utilizing SolidWorks parametric modeling/AutoCAD drafting (for military vehicles). Proficiency in standard applications such as Inventor & Revit, and very complex design tasks in the operation and application of CAD equipment round out Travis’s training.

Travis’s industry exposure includes: consultant coordination and quality assurance, design project involvement to determine detailed BIM model specs, scope of design and choosing initial parameters. He develops signed construction documents including civil and structural requirements necessary for architect and contractor, inclusive of: foundation, framing & site plans, isometrics and structural sections and details for a wide variety of projects. Travis has a broad understanding of assembly and design with various construction methods, such as: structural, concrete, conventional lumber, metal stud, CIP, steel joists, CMU, conventional slabs and retaining walls. He has also developed a strong working knowledge of design industry workflows, production cycle and priorities while assisting with various market segments: commercial, religious, residential, education, hospitality, medical and event venues. And he has exposure to most every structural design element and material: hollowcore, concrete, CLT, steel, CMU, wood, light gage, post-tension.

At 29E6 Travis has broadened his support to the needs of all their markets but has special interest in the housing studio.

Travis has lived in the Charleston area all his life and has three children: Kailynn, Zachary, Rory. His children and family are his passion, alongside Carolina Panthers football!
