Knowing how to maintain a building’s structural health to prolong its useful life is as important as understanding the causes of structural failure and deficiencies.
At Western Architectural, our multidisciplinary skills extend to structural and civil engineering as a critical part of our building envelope consulting services. Our licensed engineers provide analysis for structural defect, structural repair, mechanical ventilation, and site grading and drainage.
We specialize in forensic structural engineering investigations, as well as engineering design for alterations. Our capabilities include determining the causes of structural deficiencies and failures of buildings and building envelopes, writing opinions and remediation plans, and providing litigation support.
We have provided structural engineering services on numerous restoration projects, including commercial and multi-family residential buildings. Many of these involved structural and weight-bearing analyses for roof remediation projects. We are equally adept at providing structural analyses for ecoroof retrofit projects.
