Eric Kirkland


"Go out there and shake, rattle and roll."

The director of engineering for SmithGroupJJR's Dallas office, Eric contributes more than 30 years of experience in engineering for building systems, including energy and life cycle analysis. His work has focused on the unique environmental design specifics that inform and influence the energy and sustainable performance of buildings. He has been a featured speaker at the prestigious Tradeline conferences and contributor to the ASHRAE Journal and other trade publications. As a leader and team player, Eric is committed to cultivating team success. His style? "Encourage each individual to pave a road to success," he responds. "My mantra is ‘go out there and shake, rattle and roll.' Keep the energy level high." Maybe he should treat the team to some cake; Eric reveals that his hidden talent is making caricature birthday cakes for family celebrations.
