Structural Engineering - High End Residential

Architectural requirements frequently affect the structure, particularly in high end residential construction.  BEI’s structural engineers have extensive experience working within architectural constraints to meet detailing requirements and the owner’s expectations. 

The region in which BEI is located has high seismic and snow load demands, which can complicate meeting the load requirements within the constraints required.  Our staff has extensive experience in the design of structures using timber and log construction and details.

Typical services include:

  • Foundation design, retaining walls.
  • Masonry and fireplace structural design.
  • Steel moment and braced frames when needed for lateral loads.
  • Steel beams for large spans.
  • Wood, cold-formed steel, concrete and masonry shear walls
