The Team

Joe DeReuil, CEO, P.E., LEED 2.1 AP Joe

I love my job. I love architecture and the artistic and creative side of engineering... It is very satisfying to work out elegant, practical and economical solutions to architectural designs... I enjoy a technical challenge."

Since 1981, Joe DeReuil has assisted in or has been Structural Engineer of Record for projects totaling over 13 million square feet. His experience covers a wide variety of major building types including office buildings, churches, schools, condominiums, hotels, stadiums, museums, military facilities, aircraft hangars, water treatment facilities, custom residences, and bridges.

Joe DeReuil graduated from Georgia Tech in 1981 with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, including a year at the L'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Upon graduation, he worked in Atlanta as a structural engineer for Heery International for five years. He then worked for Nielsen/Uzun Structural Engineers as a consulting structural engineer for various Atlanta architects including Thompson Ventulett Stainback, Smallwood Reynolds Stewart and Stewart, and Cooper-Carry.

Joe moved from Atlanta to Pensacola in 1993 to head the Structural Department at Baskerville-Donovan. In 1998 he joined Samuel Johnson Inc. and worked with Sam until his restructuring at the end of 2002.

Joey McMath, P.E. Joey

Structural engineering is so much more than the academics of analysis, computations, and an understanding of the strength of materials, though those comprise its heartbeat. It is also an art, requiring multi-disciplined collaboration through effective communication with all team members. Joey is proud to be a member of this team.

After graduating from Auburn University in 2000, Joey worked for MBA Structural Engineers in Birmingham, Alabama, before joining JDA just after its inception in late 2002 where he has helped lead the firm through periods of growth and diversification.. He obtained professional registration in 2005. Moving from project design engineer to project manager and eventually to a senior structural engineering role, he has seen numerous projects through the design and construction process including military facilities, educational, office, retail, student housing, condominium, health care, water/waste water treatment, residential, hotels, and various civil structures.

In recent years, Joey has been privileged to assist with structural inspection services on over 3-million square feet of threshold buildings involving masonry, wood, steel, cast concrete, precast, and pre-stressed concrete structural systems. Observing the building process first-hand has given him much satisfaction and a deep respect for those in the construction profession. Bringing his construction observations back to the design team helps improve the constructability of the firm's future designs.

Joey believes that the engineering profession presents rewarding opportunities to help others achieve their goals. Through the practice of structural engineering, JDA works with teams who bring a client’s vision into focus and eventually to reality. Joey enjoys helping others through this challenging but rewarding process.

Joey and his wife, Misty, reside in Pace, FL, with their two awesome sons, and a beautiful daughter. They are active members of their local church and enjoy spending time with friends and family as well as hobby farming and traveling.
