A Philosophy Built Around Service

Providing our clients with responsive, high quality, contemporary structural engineering services is the principle of service of our firm. We believe the resources, attention to detail, personal involvement, and follow-up we bring to your projects provide you with many of the tools necessary for a successful venture into the building design and construction arena. From initial concept through construction completion, we provide a level of service that earns the confidence and respect of clients.

The “Art of Possible”

We understand that every project has a unique and optimum solution for its structural design and that creative engineering is the “art of the possible”. In the initial phase of each new project, we work closely with the design team to quickly develop alternative ideas and to resolve disparate planning issues. Our early participation has often resulted in efficient and innovative solutions not only responding to the architectural concepts, building code and site demands, and development conflicts, but also saving owners millions of dollars.

Our philosophy in utilizing leading edge design methodologies codes, standards, and research has positioned our firm as one of the most technically adept in the profession. We are equipped with the latest computer tools in analysis, design, graphics, communications, and computer-aided drafting which has enabled our firm to become one of the most efficient and productive in the industry.

Working Together

We employ an intense collaborative effort with your “team” from initial concept through final analysis, design, detailing, and preparation of construction documents. We pride ourselves on documenting our team results through a clear and logical presentation of our designs, drawings and specifications.

Working with the design team, we help develop recommendations for an appropriate field observation program to best service the needs of the project and the owner during construction. Our knowledge of both engineering and construction and the experience of our staff enables us to respond quickly and effectively to issues that arise during the construction phase.

Our Standard
