Structural engineering is a broad area within civil engineering that includes much of the work traditionally identified with the civil engineer. Structures such as bridges and buildings are visible in every area of the world. We are proud to have participated in work on many projects that help the public in pursuing daily life. We have designed the frameworks and foundations for buildings. We have designed retaining walls and tanks for sanitary treatment plants. We have designed in the traditional materials of steel, wood and concrete. We have also used aluminum, stone, plastic and glass. Although much of our work is hidden by other features of the projects, we are proud to know that we have contributed to the strength and stability of our clients’ projects.
Structural engineering also includes many items that may not be apparent to the public. We have designed many temporary structures for use by contractors in installing the permanent aspects of their projects. Such structures include shoring and bracing systems, scaffolding layouts, coffer dams, lifting fixtures for heavy lifts, and tower elevators to serve the construction sites of high and medium rise building projects. We have designed temporary bridges to allow continued pedestrian and traffic access around construction sites. Much of this type of work is removed before a project is completed; nevertheless, it is an important part of the overall project.
At Roaring Brook Consultants, Inc. we are proud of our practical approaches to problem solving. We often assist our clients in the structural aspects of rehabilitating and reusing property. This work includes evaluation of the strength and condition of structures for change of use or change of occupancy, strengthening and modifying structures, and evaluation and modification to building fixtures such as bridge cranes and storage systems. Reuse of property is of increasing importance economically and for historic preservation and conservation.
