We have completed designs for structures built with all of the common building material and construction procedures. We have designed structures using wood, masonry, concrete, (cast in place, precast, and post-tensioned), steel (hot rolled and light gage), and aluminum.
We have designed specialty structures such as seawalls, retaining walls, fabric tensile structures, and shoring systems.
We believe working closer with the contractor is critical to producing a quality project. We are available to provide assistance and answer questions during the bidding and construction phases. We also provide shop drawings to see that the intent of our design documents are met by contractor, sub-contractors, and fabricators.
The State of Florida requires special inspections be performed on tall and high occupancy structures as defined by Florida statutes. We have special inspectors on staff who have provided "threshold inspections" for very large projects involving a variety of construction materials.
We also provide quality assurance inspections to correct deficiencies, and poor construction practices, and to see that the work is in general conformance with the construction documents.
Forensic engineering is the applications of engineering principles to the investigation of failures and performance issues. We have provided forensic and repair design services for structural issues caused by fire, wind, vehicular impact, subsidence, water, insects, improper design, and faulty construction practices. We have provided expert testimony in mediation and arbitration hearings, in depositions, and in the courtroom.
