Design Engineering

Structural Design Engineering services vary in nature and scope according to specific project requirements. They are normally performed for an Architect or other Prime Professional, and include complete responsibility for the structural portions of a project, including:

  • Foundation Design
  • Superstructure Design
  • Contract Document Production
  • Shop Drawing Review/Approval
  • Field Observation During Construction

Our experience shows that early involvement in a project by the structural engineer establishes a basic framework around which the design team can effectively develop fully-integrated, constructible building solutions. In that way, the client can draw more fully on the expertise and capabilities of our organization.
