Structures

Our Building Structural Services Group provides structural engineering and construction administration services for new buildings and rehabilitation projects – large and small. Structural rehabilitation projects are often the most complex due to the combination of archaic systems and materials, the lack of existing documentation, unforeseen conditions, dimensional constraints and restrictive building code requirements. We have found that the codes are much more lenient on historic structures; however, special historic preservation concerns must be considered.

Our structural engineers consider framing alternatives and are proactive in collaborating with other engineering disciplines and architects to ensure successful execution of the final design. We find that projects often benefit from also having input from the various engineering disciplines within the firm. Our project design process places emphasis on efficiency in design and delivery of comprehensive contract documents by using the latest analysis and modeling programs and utilizing AutoCAD and Revit Structure for Building Information Modelling (BIM).

We keep informed on new trends and construction materials, products, and assemblies, as well as understand the changes in building code provisions.  Hoyle, Tanner’s engineers have experience with various aspects of construction thus understand the importance of providing timely shop drawings reviews, rapid responses to contractors’ requests for information, and quickly resolving conflicts to avoid project delays. We recognize that there is constant pressure to build “cheaper and faster” which makes construction observation and administration services imperative.
