Our Structural Engineering Services
Structural Condition AssessmentsIt is prudent for owners of new or recently acquired properties to commission a structural condition assessment to identify any problem areas and provide accurate documentation outlining the structural integrity with regard to the safety and serviceability of a building. Rimkus structural engineers carefully review the building framework, foundation, load-bearing walls, roof decking, and other critical areas for structural anomalies, deficiencies, distress, and/or material deterioration. Renowned for thoroughness, our reports are also prepared to meet the needs of owners operating on short timelines. As with all condition assessments, our structural engineers provides a capital plan to help our clients allocate future investments in maintenance repairs and upgrades to help maintain and improve property values.
Structural Design and SpecificationRimkus structural engineers have decades of experience designing structures and structural components for buildings and complex structures. We work seamlessly with architects, geotechnical, mechanical, electrical, as well as other building envelope and roofing consultants, maintaining the speed and precision necessary to meet the demands of the fast-paced industries we serve. Our portfolio includes national food service facilities, gas stations, and outdoor signage companies, among others. Our structural designs and specifications are praised for their high level of detail and accuracy, bringing value to our clients in the form of fewer oversights, revisions, and/or costly contractor change orders. Avoiding mistakes, delays, extras, and material waste is why our clients choose Rimkus to provide a quality structural design.
Structural Rehabilitation and RemediationRimkus structural engineers provide rehabilitation expertise for many types of aging structures. Heritage buildings, for example, can become stronger, more efficient, and code-compliant with the targeted restoration of structural elements. For building expansions or mechanical upgrades such as new HVAC or solar equipment on the roof, structural reinforcement may be required. Seasonal snow loads have also been known to cause damage to older building exterior walls and roof systems. Rimkus takes a holistic design approach to provide preventative and remedial action from the inside out.
Remediation DesignWhen property is damaged, the Rimkus Built Environment Solutions team applies years of design experience to return spaces to pre-loss conditions. We offer a comprehensive team of engineers, architects, construction professionals, and other technical specialists to solve remediation problems and improve operational efficiency. With a focus on restoration, alteration, and rehabilitation, we provide thorough building, equipment, and infrastructure design solutions and effectively diagnose the proper design repair. Our professional design services extend to new construction design elements, as well as those elements that are prone to construction defects, such as waterproofing, drainage, and building envelope systems.
