Designing a new facility or remodeling an existing one requires more than just a quality-looking design. It needs to be structurally sound. Without the right supports or considerations for gravity and lateral loads, your facility could become a safety hazard.
Figuring out these specifications requires necessary but complex math and detailed planning. Without the right training or experience utilized with attention to detail, you could be setting yourself up for a lengthy and frustrating experience in the design of your new project.
DJG’s team of structural engineers specialize in creating safe buildings designed for your specialized needs and standards while adhering to your brand and culture. By partnering with us for your construction project, our experts will land you on a solid foundation, supporting your people, processes and community for years to come.
Structural engineering is the trade of designing and constructing the skeleton that holds up a structure. Every building relies on common supports, like load-bearing walls in homes or steel beams in skyscrapers. Structural engineers consider where to put these supports, how to best solve structural remediations and how these supports will affect the overall structural integrity of the building.
Structural engineers work with a variety of materials and must consider what type would best support the skeleton of your building. DJG’s engineers work with:
From small additions to entire facility construction, our structural engineers have the experience and dedication to see your project become a reality. Our past experiences include:
In diverse building sectors such as
A large part of the professional design is considering the “load” for each support or addition to a building and its effect on the other building components such as the floor or foundation.
This evaluation ultimately reviews how the building will stand under normal and abnormal events (pressures) such as hurricanes and earthquakes (seismic).
By understanding the purpose of a structure, key building codes and client goals, structural engineers can help create a design that is both economical and safe.
Structural engineers consider the safety and integrity of a structure. This means that they specialize in analyzing a design and examining it from every angle. They need to consider how people will use the building every day, how it will stand up to natural weather, if it fits within the community design, if they have the budget for the right materials and if the proposed materials can be easily sourced and erected at the project site.
With so much to consider and keep track of, it’s no wonder business owners and industry professionals call on their expertise to ensure their buildings are constructed correctly.
