“The greatest impediment to being great is being good.
Never settle for just good enough.”
Growing up in a small town outside of Cleveland, Ohio, Daniel Van Cuyk chose to study Structural Engineering at the University of Arizona in Tucson. He joined the Caruso Turley Scott team in 1999 after he had a chance to experience some road construction with the Arizona Department of Transportation, and structural plan review with the City of Phoenix, both of which helped him understand practical field issues as well as technical code concerns.
Daniel was promoted to Project Manager in 2018 and a few of his favorite design projects include the OdySea Aquarium, Marina Heights/State Farm Mixed-Use Development, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters, the City of Scottsdale Arabian Library and a residence from an original Frank Lloyd Wright design.
Daniel has a love for engineering large complicated structures out of steel and concrete using 3D modeling programs such as RAM Select Structural, but he also enjoys working on smaller projects that require close attention to detail. He prefers to think “outside the box” and achieve creative engineering solutions for challenging situations.
Personal: Favorite vacations include Disneyland trips with my family and cruises with my wife. I am active in service and bible study groups at my church, and I love teaching math to my daughters, who are both home schooled.
