Multifarious buildings for business and institutions
New and retrofit applications, all sizes and materials
Our Past Projects
National Center for Atmospheric Research: retrofit handicap access ramp
Henderson Civic Center: wood, structural steel, and masonry design
Estes Park High School: precast concrete construction
In commercial architecture and engineering, our firm applies all types of structural disciplines in conjunction with the latest technologies, materials, and construction methods. Differing user needs can require creative solutions of varying scales, to meet client and functional needs.
We meet this challenge by providing knowledgeable uses of various products.
Seismic resistance models
The appreciation of aesthetics drives the form and function of all our projects. At the same time, cost-effective practices enable us to meet the most stringent building demands and yield responsible results.
Our Past Projects
Mining assay office: public restoration
Citizens' bank, pearl street mall: commercial modification and restoration
Walker ranch cabin: building preservation
Heil ranch barn: structural stabilization
Taking steps to ensure the fascinating history of remarkable buildings is our passion. When a crumbling structure is restored to an accurate-to-date condition, we can educate the public about what people did, how they did it, and what architectural forms were created to facilitate life in past times.
We work closely with many clients, such as the Boulder County Parks & Open Space and Historic Boulder, to reconstruct and preserve many of our landmarks. As expected, modern material choices, such as woods, metals, stone, need to blend in with the existing project, support the structure, and showcase the buildings unobtrusively and realistically.
Often, this challenge involves repairing and rebuilding to bring projects up to codes and specifications to make them safe for visitors while retaining the historical integrity and value of the edifices.
Determination of failures
Diverse and unique challenges met with creativity: designs and products with an unusual character.
Our Past Projects
Flagstaff amphitheater: historic retrofit handicap access ramp
Steel bracing for concrete foundation walls
Air-supported structure design
Here we excel in the art of engineering. Whether the project is a structural detail for reinforcing a cracking basement wall or designing an additional means of egress for a historic outdoor amphitheater set high in a Mountain Park, we do it all. We enjoy the opportunities for solving problems in the most ingenious ways.
Our clients can be extremely concerned homeowners with an immediate problem, a traveling rock-n-roll band needing a re-locatable structure for theatrical lighting, or a designer of an intriguing set of stairs for a challenging residential landscape.
