David Johnson’s career spans three decades with the last two spent providing design-build services.

David Johnson Engineering brings this valuable experience to your projects.

David Johnson chose to spend his formative years working in construction. Intuitively he felt that to become a good engineer, he first needed to learn how to build. His mentor was a tough and seasoned engineer with a unique history that included both design and construction experience. It was through this relationship that David was introduced to the concept and fundamentals of design-build.
David’s independent nature and entrepreneurial spirit led to the formation of Construction Planners, Inc. in 1996 and later Tomorrow’s Builder, Inc. in 2011. The format of these companies was unique in that they provided both in-house engineering, along with construction services. Both companies successfully completed dozens of residential and commercial projects, but flourished in manufacturing and industry where engineering is valued and design-build is king.
David Johnson Engineering, LLC was formed in 2017 to meet the needs of clients looking for consulting or design only services. David brings his years of practical experience to solve engineering problems, guide owners through the complexities of building expansions or to act as the owner’s trusted agent.
David holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Master of Science in Structural Engineering from the University of Tennessee. He completed the 2 year Cooperative Work Program and as a graduate student researched and published on the effects of ground movements on structures. From 2008 to 2013 David was able to give back to his profession by teaching construction estimating, management and senior design classes at the University of Tennessee.
Balance in David’s life is gained through his faith in our creator and his relationships with family and friends. He is a dedicated Vol fan, loves to fish, hopes to stay young doing CrossFit and can think of nothing better than throwing Frisbee on the beach!
