Structural Design Engineering

Structural Building Design

Today’s structures and larger and more sophisticated than ever. We work with building owners, architects, contractors, and materials suppliers to design building plans for new construction and building remodeling or rehabilitation. We work on whole building structural engineering design projects, and are also happy to help you with designing a small modification or element installation. We also design all types of retaining walls for properties.

You have a vision in mind for a design – we will ensure that design can endure the stresses and pressures of their environment.

  • Residential & Commercial Buildings
  • New Construction
  • Existing Construction Modifications
  • Renovations & Additions

Exterior Building Enclosure

Harsh weather, environmental factors, and building use often impact the effectiveness and safety of the exterior enclosure materials. Call us for design and materials selection to safeguard your exterior enclosure can withstand the elements and all the demands put on it!

  • Building Envelope
  • Building Components & Cladding
  • Doors, Windows & Flashing
  • Walls & Canopies
  • Foundations, Ventilation & Insulation
  • Glass Enclosures & Point-Supported Glass Elements
  • Water Proofing & Weather Resistance

Structural Investigations

Many factors impact existing structures and properties that can cause a structural failure. It could be a natural issue such as snow load or erosion, improper building methods, or faulty materials. If you have a structural issue occurring with an existing building design, we can help figure out what is causing it, and develop a solution to rectify it.

  • Residential Wood-Framed Structures
  • Commercial Steel Framing
  • Concrete Foundations & Slabs
  • Retaining Walls
  • Masonry Structures
  • Renovations & Additions to Any Building

If you are an attorney, insurance adjuster, building owner or contractor facing a dispute and need assistance with determining a cause – please visit our Building Forensics & Investigations and Expert Witness Services pages.

Retaining Walls

We can assist with the design of all types of retaining walls, and help you determine the critical components, including the depth of necessary backfill, geogrid material, type of backfill soil required, and how deep the wall must be. We can also recommend the best type of block for your project.

  • Cast-in-Place Concrete
  • Segmental Block
  • Stone & Granite

Drafting Services

We have a full-time drafter on staff here at Associated Design Partners who uses AutoCAD to develop all of our designs and plans. This allows us to put all of our engineering designs on paper quickly and with the oversight of the engineer who developed the plans. This in-house advantage makes us more efficient and more economical. If you have a project that needs a set of drawings – let us know!
