Bring us in early.Often the Structural Engineer is not brought into the design project during the time when many of the preliminary decisions affecting the layout of the project are made. However, this is when the biggest impact towards meeting goals can be made, whether the project is design driven or budget driven.
Our early involvement can free the design team from misinformed or preconceived boundaries. We thrive on design challenges and often offer our own unique possibilities to consider.
Involving us in the earliest planning stages can make a big impact on the construction budget. Use our knowledge to develop the most efficient systems and maximize the performance of the structure.
