structural engineering

Bridge and structure safety are top of mind for many clients. We understand the importance of complete and constructible plans that contribute to a successful project from design through construction completion. Our clients trust that our designs will ultimately protect the community by providing safe bridges and structures that people use to travel.

Over the years, we’ve gained extensive experience working with dams and levees. We understand how to integrate the structural, geotechnical, and hydraulic design disciplines required for a successful project, all while considering impacts on current and future operation and maintenance. Our dedicated team applies that expertise to projects of all sizes. Our goal is always to reduce risk and create a resilient structure, protecting our clients’ investment and the surrounding community.
