We provide full construction drawing sets that include plan drawing sheets, detail sheets, and structural specifications. Our drafting documents not only insure an expedited building department review but are vital to insuring the structure is built correctly to mitigate any future serviceability issues or project delays.
We offer full service structural engineering design for multiple foundation types, general framing systems, and all roof framing types. Our design process utilizes both engineering practice principles and up to date prescriptive code design methods. By incorporating both design types, we can create the most efficient and practical design which reduces construction costs and over engineering while maintaining code requirements.
No project is too small for us. We have extensive experience in multiple types of exterior covered areas, decks, and pergola construction and stay current with the ever-changing code updates concerning these structures. It was recently determined that half of the 50 million decks within the united states are at risk of failure. Make sure your future or existing deck has been designed or modified to reduce or eliminate these risks using industry proven solutions.
Many areas of Colorado have expansive soil issues and/or steeply sloping bedrock. Either condition, or the combination of both can create some risky structures. We can design foundations using conventional methods, drilled or helical piers, or even post tension slabs. No matter the site conditions of your project, whether you're building a home at elevation on the side of a mountain, or building a home on expansive soil, we’re here to mitigate the risks associated with poor soil conditions.
We work with owners, buyers, sellers, lenders and attorneys to design and conduct a cost-effective due diligence strategy to minimize risk and maximize investor value. Most home inspection companies will refer to hiring a structural engineer when something of structural concern is found during their inspection and your due diligence process. We can review these aspects of the structure to determine the risks and if any action should be taken prior to finalizing the real estate transaction.
Concerned a design may be over-engineered, or even worse, under-engineered. It happens, we've seen it many times. By staying current with new codes and engineering practice, we're able to pick out errors of out-dated designs that are either inefficient and costly or just down right risky.
Certain jurisdictions will require a professional engineer to review the forms and reinforcement of a foundation prior to concrete placement. We will perform this observation and provide the required paperwork to meet the jurisdictional requirements.
We are available to review the structure at any point during the construction process to discuss issues, errors, or omissions and determine how to proceed to meet the intent on the design and meet the requirements of the code or standard engineering practice.
We don't just quickly whip together designs. For one thing that causes high construction costs, and two, because you deserve better. All of our projects utilize value engineering practices to maximize value based on your budget. Not sure if your engineer does the same. Have us conduct a 3rd party review to see if you're missing out on potential construction cost savings.
