The structural design for college and university buildings is an exciting discipline.
These projects are often of the highest quality, with performance levels exceeding that of many in the world of construction. Built to last for generations and minimize maintenance costs, the structural design phase is a crucial step in ensuring each project’s level of sustainability.
Our buildings are expertly crafted to meet current program needs. However, over a building’s lifespan, program needs inevitably change. Since future program needs are undefined, we anticipate the future adaptation of the projects we engineer by designing robust capacity now that will serve future needs. This is true sustainability.
These projects are also often examples of refined architecture that advance the image and mission of the institution. We are enthusiastic and creative collaborators with some of the nation’s most respected architectural firms, providing them with an array of system options and an iterative design process to realize excellence in design.
