The foundation of your building design begins with our structural engineering department. Our engineers have a comprehensive understanding of structural engineering theory and empirical knowledge of the structural performance of different systems and materials. We take pride in developing practical designs that creatively incorporate basic structural elements while making efficient use of our resources. Architects appreciate our ability to integrate underlying structure with architectural form and determine which system is best suited for a particular project. Every project is unique and possesses a particular set of design challenges; we approach those challenges aggressively to provide designs that are creative, constructible, and cost efficient. We have completed successful projects in various market sectors including schools, office buildings, churches, historic preservation, residential projects, industrial projects, and healthcare facilities. We understand and embrace the principles of “green” design and promote sustainable practices such as material optimization, local sourcing of materials, and using materials with recycled content when possible. Current building codes mandate strict requirements for wind and seismic lateral force resisting systems, and our structural engineers utilize state of the art, three-dimensional analysis and design software to provide efficient and accurate designs. Our designs also utilize building information modeling (BIM), to facilitate a more coordinated and consistent design process. Whether your project includes the design of a new structure or the renovation of an existing facility, we offer the skills to satisfy your project’s structural needs.
