Today, we mainly specialize in design and engineering of tension fabric structures and other specialty structures. However, our broad experience in various types of construction allows us to go beyond that providing: foundation and anchorage design of specialty structures, evaluation of the existing and new structures for the effects of forces exerted on them by various specialty structures, peer reviews, and general conventional construction. We work with a variety of construction materials that include steel, concrete, tensioned fabric, cables, masonry, wood, and light gage. The employees of Structure Design and Engineering are skilled in performing nonlinear, linear, static, and dynamic analysis using current U.S. and international building codes.
We are committed to providing excellent quality and service to our clients and pride ourselves on delivering cost effective and innovative design in record time.
