structuralengineering.jpg

BUILDING STRUCTURE ENGINEERING  of timber, cast-in-place concrete, masonry, structural steel, ICF, and other material systems using state of the art analysis and BIM software to produce complete, highly-detailed, and well-coordinated construction documents that clearly convey the design intent.  We emphasize constructability and detailing that considers means, methods, and construction phasing.  Our BIM designs integrate architectural modeling to ensure coordination and compatibility.  We perform complete design of structure, thereby minimizing schedule and bid unknowns.

VALUE ENGINEERING from detail simplification and standardization to complete building redesigns.  We simplify layouts, reduce piececount, and reduce connection material.  Tonnage tracking available upon request. We work collaboratively with the Contractor and the original Engineer of Record to re-engineer with efficiency of material, constructability of detail, and thorough documents which give assurance to the owner while saving construction time and cost.

 

Case Study:  City Center complete redesign with weekly tonnage tracking, connection simplification, confirmational analysis of existing underground garage support, and erection limitation analysis to net 6 months schedule reduction and $3 million savings.  Redesign completed in 9 weeks from start date.
