OUR SERVICES

ENGINEERING DESIGN: Our engineering design team provides structural design services for projects featuring advanced technologies building systems:
  • Foundation and framing structural building plans for pre-fabricated and site-built structures.
  • Components and cladding pre-engineered details and shop drawings.
  • Special packages using our in-house developed technical guides for pre-fabricated wood-frame and insulated concrete forms (ICF) structures.
Structural building plans services are primarily for projects along the west coast in BC, California, and Washington. We complete designs for:
  • Residential Custom Homes, Small and Medium-Rise Multi-family, Commercial, and Industrial construction.
  • New Construction, Renovation, Additions, Restoration.
  • Buildings in climate areas with seismic, coastal wind/hurricane, and wildfire resilience considerations.
CODE EVALUATION: We develop technical guide documents of structural building components for use by architectural and structural designers, regulatory officials, and builders. The reporting format allows for a reader to quickly determine the applicable Code requirements, how compliance is achieved, offers materials design properties and pre-engineered tables and diagrams to apply at the design, plan review, and construction phases. With professional engineering licenses across numerous Canadian and US jurisdictions, our reach extends to every Canadian Province and all US States. We prepare design evaluation and code compliance reports to:
  • National Building Code of Canada, and BC, Alberta and Ontario provincial Codes
  • International Building Code, California and Florida state Codes
  • Florida Building Code Evaluation and Validation per Rule 61G20-3 – Product Approval
TESTING & APPROVALS: As a key consultant to building product manufacturers, we prepare a concise, understandable technical documentation package with the necessary regulatory approvals for their market.
  • Consulting for building product manufacturers through Product Testing, Inspection, Third-party Certification and Code Evaluation Reports.
  • Obtaining and maintaining product certifications and regulatory approvals with accredited agencies such as ICC-ES, CCMC, UL, CSA, Florida Building Commission, Miami-Dade, Cal-Fire, LA City, Intertek, QAI.
  • Working with a network of international laboratories, our expertise is in testing systems for Structural Loading, Wind Pressure, Dynamic Wind-Rain, Fire-Resistance, Seismic, Hurricane and Wild Fire exposure.
