History:

The developer of T.Y. Lin International Tung-Yen Lin, known as “T.Y.,” was born on Novemeber 14th 1912, in Fuzhou, China. In 1946, T.Y. began researching pre-stressed concrete at UC Berkeley. In 1954 T.Y. founded T.Y. Lin Associates in Los Angeles which later became T.Y. Lin International.

In the 1960’s T.Y.’s firm relocates to San Fransisco where it expands its specialty in pre-stressed concrete to broader consulting services with designs that include conventionally reinforced concrete, structural steel, masonry, and timber-framed strutures.

In 1989 T.Y. Lin International Group is acquired by DAR Group, an international network of professional service firms, comprised of over 12,000 staff members located in 45 countries around the world.

Currently, T.Y. Lin International works as the lead engineer on many different projects ranging from bridge construction to airport terminals to McDonalds establishments.
