  • Professionalism:  We have a great blend of young and experienced professional staff who bring unique, but varied, expertise to our knowledge base.  A spirit of cooperation prevails in our office as we all work together to continue to learn and keep abreast of the latest technical guides and construction techniques.
  • Project Types:  We perform a wide range of non-residential building designs that use all of the major structural materials such as structural steel, concrete, masonry and timber and consider both design and serviceability criteria.
  • Continuing Education:  We support continuing education of our professional staff as it is required for licensure, but also necessary to keep up with technical advances.
  • Flexible Hours:  We understand that all people have different outside interests and responsibilities.  As such, we offer flexible work hours allowing individuals to suit their needs.
