The proper application and interpretation of building codes is essential in achieving efficient structural design with cost- effective construction. We have thorough knowledge of building codes such as the California Building Code and design specifications of AISC, ACI, and AISI to draw upon to achieve this endeavor.

We believe that cost-effective construction starts with the determination of the correct vertical, wind, and seismic loading. Once the correct loading is determined, structural systems can be designed and detailed. Along with our structural engineering approach, we emphasize the constructability in the structural detailing of our designs. With our wide variety of experience in all types of construction materials and building types to draw upon, we can quickly arrive at practical structural building systems. Earthquake resistance design of structures is of utmost importance in California. We apply our experience, knowledge, and understanding of how structures behave in earthquake to provide for cost efficient structural designs.
