At Adkins, our results-oriented engineers look forward to each new project and the challenges it brings. We incorporate our client’s needs into safe, code-compliant, and cost effective designs by taking the time to listen and understand. We combine this knowledge with fundamental structural engineering principals, our experience, and cutting edge technology, to develop the best design for each individual project.
We also understand the challenges of structural design, which include constantly evolving building codes and continually rising building material and labor costs. Adkins’ engineers have the know-how and experience to overcome project challenges and provide outstanding structural designs for our clients.
Our structural design expertise includes:
- Conceptual Design: During the conceptual phase of a project design, Adkins develops and evaluates alternatives for structural engineering projects to minimize risk and uncertainty in the final design phase.
- Structural Design: Our team designs projects that optimize funding while being aesthetically pleasing. We provide plans and technical specifications, bid documents, bid support, and construction documents.
- Project Cost Estimation: We are involved in all aspects of providing accurate project cost estimates including all levels of estimation, cost analysis, financial planning, and funding procurement, which are all key for a successful project. We seek to provide our clients with the optimal balance between schedule, quality, and cost and use our combined experience to provide a high level of accuracy.
