SOLAR CANOPY DESIGN

We collaborate with developers, owners, fabricators, and solar panel specialists to design steel canopies to support solar panels. Our engineering team utilizes their extensive structural steel, foundation, and environmental loading knowledge to create a long-lasting and economical canopy design. From parking lots, bus stops, picnic areas, and beyond, we can deliver a cost-effective solution in a timely manner.

STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS

We provide dynamic analysis for blast loads and other high-impact forces. We use advanced modeling procedures to design the structure in accordance with all applicable codes and specifications.

STRUCTURAL CERTIFICATION IN ALL 50 STATES

Our team of engineers is licensed in all 50 U.S. states, so we can provide certification where the project is located.  Our engineers stay involved in multiple professional societies to ensure we stay current with the ever-evolving industry design standards.

STRUCTURAL FORENSICS

We use our experience to design existing structures for new life-cycle requirements.  Our engineers work with building owners and architects to design new structural systems that blend seamlessly into existing buildings to meet the intended new use.  We also investigate existing structures to determine the strength and load-carrying capacity of the current systems.

BILL OF MATERIALS FOR JOIST / DECK MANUFACTURERS

We provide joist and deck bill of materials for any manufacturer.  If a tight schedule is required, the time from order to delivery is drastically reduced if the manufacturer receives a bill of material from the contractor.  We have the experience to streamline the joist and deck detailing process and achieve quick turnaround times to the manufacturer.

RETROFIT ANALYSIS

When changes are made after construction has commenced, building costs can greatly increase. We work with contractors and design teams to engineer efficient solutions in a timely manner. We have the experience and knowledge to solve complex problems with clean, cost-effective solutions.

STEEL JOIST

Our engineering team has extensive knowledge in the steel joist industry.  We work with contractors and building owners when new equipment is installed and when existing joist systems require modification.  We work directly with joist manufacturers and general contractors to provide engineering support on a wide variety of projects.

VALUE ENGINEERING

We use our engineering expertise to create cost-saving ideas for new projects.  We develop solutions to efficiently utilize the building materials and optimize construction schedules.

PRELIMINARY DESIGN

We provide preliminary structural design services to assist with project budgets and design concepts.  We work with building owners, architects, and contractors to provide efficient designs that allow the permitting process to commence quickly.
