(Some of) Our Services
Assessments - Design - Drawings - Field Review
If there are concerns of a structural failure, or if one occurs, we review the structure and the loading conditions to determine if emergency shoring is necessary. We then provide recommendations for repairs.
Light Gauge Steel Stud Design
Whether you're a Contractor building a garage, a condo, a commercial tower, or even working on tenant improvements, we can design, prepare shop drawings, and review the construction of your light gauge steel stud project.
Post-Tension System Reviews
We perform regular reviews of concrete structural slabs which have been constructed with the use of embedded post-tension tendons. These high strength steel tendons can be subject to moisture ingress which can corrode the steel, ultimately leading to failure of the tendon and a reduced capacity of the structural slab. Following our review, we provide recommendations for further monitoring or repairs.
Decay and Deterioration Assessments
When decay, corrosion, or other forms of deterioration affect the capacity of structural systems (timber, concrete, steel, masonry, etc.) in houses, townhouses, condo towers, or commercial or industrial buildings, we review the situation and provide recommendations to restore the structure to its intended capacity.
Roof Anchor Review and Repair
When an update, or assessment of the coverage on, an existing roof level safety anchor system is required, or if new anchors are proposed, we can perform the required design, analysis, and/or review to bring your roof anchor system up to current standards.
Foundation Assessment and Repair
If there are concerns about foundation heave or settlement, we can perform a review of the foundation system to ascertain the nature of the movement, and provide recommendations for stabilization and/or lifting.
Impact, Fire, Flood Assessments
There are times when a building undergoes accidental damage, whether by vehicular or equipment impact, fire, or flood. Once involved, we perform a review of the structural systems in the affected areas to determine if emergency shoring is necessary, and then provide recommendations for repair.
Aluminum and Glass Framing Design
From small punched windows to large storefront frames, and from canopies to glass guards, our firm acts as a Specialty Engineer for aluminum framing, glazing, and connection components.
