Our Structural Department services a wide array of projects from light to heavy industrial projects, either as part of a multi-disciplinary project, or as a stand-alone structural project. Our team of engineers and designers lead the practice of structural engineering by combining creativity with practicality to meet and optimize for project needs and objectives.
The experiences span feasibility to detail design, encompassing projects involving upgrades and modifications involving existing, brownfield projects, or greenfield development. We utilize 3D FEA software to ensure compliance to building codes and required standards (National & Provincial Building Codes, CSA). We typically issue IFC and IFT packages with an adequate level of detail, to minimize risks with tendering and during construction. The services range as the following:
- Design of new Structures
- Assessment of existing structures & Capacity checks
- Reinforcement, restoration, and rehabilitation of existing
- Seismic Design & retrofits
- Structural Inspections
- Geotechnical Management
We have expertise in design and construction of the following systems:
- Industrial Buildings
- Equipment Support Structures & Anchors
- Deep & Shallow Foundations (with piles)
- Marine Structures – Wharves, Jetties, Berths, Dolphins, Ship loaders
- Bridges & Gangways
- Pipe Racks
- Fall Protection Systems & Anchor points
- Envelope Design
- Shoring & Falsework
- Piles Design – Steel, Concrete, Screw, Friction
- Seismic Analysis, Upgrades & Retrofits
- Design with Steel, Concrete, Aluminum, Masonry, Cold form, and timber
Inspections, Rehabilitation, & Retrofits
Replacement of old, aging assets with new capital is not always an option. Inspecting your assets is crucial to ensure continual maintenance, operations, and minimizing of risks and liabilities, and increasing reliability. Our Structural department encompasses a trained and competent inspections team, composed of inspectors and engineers with experience in identifying risks. Our process involves identification and prioritization of findings, presented in an Inspections & Conditions Report. Direction to your personnel or contractors are provided for rectification. Items found that require engineering are provided with an engineered solution for rectification. For a comprehensive list of inspections services, see Inspections & Audits
- Visual Inspections
- Aerial Drone Inspections
- NDT Services
- 3rd Party NDT Management
- Monitoring Plans
- Inspects Reports of findings with Priority
- Work Packages for reinforcement and rehabilitation
Following visual inspections, NDT, Structural Examination, and Designs for reinforcement and rehabilitation, we produce Contractor Scopes of Work, Construction Work Package followed by oversight for the reinforcement and rehabilitation work required. We employ designs that would minimize downtime and impact your operations the least.
