Complete structural design involves taking a project from inception to completion. It requires the skill to define a structural design concept and then execute it in the most cost-efficient manner.
Design Assist projects are the backbone of the checks and balances system within the structural engineering community. It asks us to take a look at anotherís work with a critical eye, and analyze both the successes and the failures to provide another viewpoint on a structural solution.
Value engineering is the process by which we examine a structural design solution, and through detailed analysis, determine if the job can be improved, and/or enhanced in an effective manner.
Retrofitting a structure has us reimagining a structural solution for a new purpose or added function/ feature, that integrates seamlessly with the existing structure.
Forensic analysis peels back the structural shroud on a damaged structure, and asks the important questions of why, and how.
Specialty engineering circumstances are those which require unique and distinctive solutions. They involve unusual projects that challenge an engineer to think outside the box and create intelligent solutions to complex problems.
