Structural Engineering


Structural (adj): of, relating to, or affecting structure ▪ structural stability – Merriam-Webster Dictionary


Do you know if your house or project is structurally sound?  Our structural engineers do and have years of experience to assist you with your residential, commercial, and/or institutional project.  Structural engineers work collaboratively with owners, architects, contractors, artists, and/or other design team members to create and construct.  From foundation inspections, custom truss designs, sculpture, and historical assessments to multi-story office buildings, complex wastewater treatment facilities, and bridges, our engineers will ensure your project is structurally sound.  We utilize AutoCAD, BIM, and Revit, which allows our engineers to design local, regional, and global projects independently and cooperatively (examples of projects designed outside of the US may be viewed in the Photo Gallery).
