WHAT WE DO
We provide all aspects of structural engineering services from feasibility studies and conceptual design to detailed design and construction services for new structures and assessment, rehabilitation and upgrade of existing structures. Our experience includes concrete, steel, timber and aluminum structures. We are well-versed in fixed-base, floating, and gravity-base structures.
We help our clients with performance-based seismic design, dynamic analysis, and seismic soil-structure interaction analysis of structures. We provide consulting services for determining the seismic performance criteria and analysis methodology, and provide the know-how for execution and verification of dynamic analysis results.
We apply risk assessment methods for evaluation of seismic risk, risk of aged structures due to material deterioration, and risk ranking for prioritization of rehabilitation and retrofit of existing structures. This provides decision makers with invaluable risk-benefit insight for informed decision making to maximize value of investment by maximizing risk reduction.
Ship-Bridge Collision Risk Assessment
As part of larger teams, our staff have led probabilistic vessel collision risk and force assessment for major bridge projects in Greater Vancouver. We provide probabilistic estimates of design collision forces and devise risk mitigation strategies for cost saving and optimization of bridge design that meets the acceptable risk.
