This Is What We Do
Commercial and Residential Engineering
Civil / Structural / MEP / Shoring
Structural Engineering & Shoring
While the construction starts from the ground up, engineering is being done from top to bottom. Starting with roof load calculations through the ceiling and the walls, all the way to the foundation. Our Engineers are well trained and experienced to structurally design all the supporting elements related to your project (beam, post, footings, etc.)
When a new project requires an excavation that is normally deeper than 5 feet, then Shoring the soil is required. We provide different types of shoring systems that suits best the Soil Engineer’s recommendations, the property owner and the building contractor.
What is Structural Engineering?
Structural engineering — a specialty within the field of civil engineering — focuses on the framework of structures, and on designing those structures to withstand the stresses and pressures of their environment and remain safe, stable and secure throughout their use. In other words, structural engineers make sure that buildings don’t fall down and bridges don’t collapse.
Structural engineers design roof framing (beams, rafters, joists, trusses), floor framing (floor decks, joists, beams, trusses, girders), arches, columns, braces, frames, foundations and walls.
Any site improvements (inside and outside its boundaries) related to the proposed project will normally be designed by a Civil Engineer. Civil can include Grading, Drainage, LID/Sanitation, street improvements, Traffic control, water quality, excavations, erosion control and more.
What is Civil engineering?
Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is traditionally broken into many sub-disciplines. It is the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it is defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering. Civil engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal through to national governments. Both commercial and residential projects will end up needing civil engineering attention.
MEP Plans (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing)
The combination of these 3 disciplines are typically done by a team of Mechanical and Electrical Engineers that collaborate to achieve the most efficient and affordable design on a project regardless of its size. We have a few Licensed MEP teams that works closely with us on projects and between all of us, the process of getting the plans approved by the local building department are streamlined at best speed and quality.
