Structural Engineering Services

Trusted Structural Engineering Consultants

ECS offers structural engineering services, including limited design services, for building owners filling-in the gaps between what large scale structural firms do and the smaller scale needs of some projects. This work can include, for example, the design of retaining walls or pedestrian bridges, structural slabs on grade for pre-engineered metal buildings, cooling towers and residential wood framing.

Structural Engineering Applications

Structural engineer services are valuable in various circumstances, including:

  • When a small structure or design feature was overlooked
  • A renovation is occurring and the owner needs structural design assistance but has not engaged another structural engineer
  • During construction when a condition arises that needs to be addressed and the structural engineer of record is unavailable to assist
  • When a developer wishes to sole source the geotechnical investigation, structural design and structural assessments for a small scale project such as a retaining wall, weir wall, pedestrian bridge, screen wall or pre-engineered metal building

What Are Structural Engineering Services?


Structural engineering services involve the safe design of the bones of a building or structure. Any building’s skeleton is responsible for load bearing. When a structural engineer creates the design for a building, they consider the laws of physics, mathematics and empirical knowledge to develop a structure that can withstand the required loads.


Using this knowledge, structural engineers can predict how different materials and shapes perform based on factors like load resistance and stress. These engineers make the structures in our lives steady and ready for long-term use, such as bridges, parking garages and apartment complexes.


Structural engineering services involve a collaboration between the engineer and the client to create a structure that addresses the client’s needs while preparing for most environmental factors. To create their designs, these engineers will plan to factor in building codes, the function of the structure and weather events like earthquakes and snow. They may even collaborate with an architect to create designs that are structurally sound and attractive.


Why Are Structural Engineering Services Important?


Structural engineering is critical for the stability and function of a structure. Many infrastructure elements face high load requirements day in and day out. These heavy loads alongside towering heights, severe weather patterns and abrasive environments mean stability is essential. 


Structural design services are important for keeping structures as safe as possible and usable for the public. When structures like office buildings or parking garages are improperly engineered, there is a risk of collapse. In these events, damages and injuries are often extensive. Structural engineer services keep these structures standing and keep people safe.


Why Choose ECS?


The professionals at ECS have a broad range of experience in structural engineering to provide the services and support needed for your project. While our skills enable us to deliver on your project specifications, we also prioritize communication and collaboration in everything we do. You may already have a vision for your project — we are here to make it possible.


As we work with you on your structural design, we will apply our flexible problem-solving skills to meet you where you are. We prioritize safety and stability, but we will look for alternative approaches to leave you happy with the final results. As our design process progresses, we will keep you informed through detailed proposals and reports.


With excellence at the core of our mission, the ECS team remains dedicated to creative and cost-effective solutions.
