”Give me the money that has been spent in war and I will clothe every man, woman, and child in an attire of which kings and queens will be proud. I will build a schoolhouse in every valley over the whole earth. I will crown every hillside with a place of worship consecrated to peace.”      - Charles Sumner

Because worship is such a personal endeavor, congregations demand design professionals who are seducation 4ensitive to their traditions. Economical building designs are also imperative for these non-profit organizations. For these reasons, structural engineers play a critical role in any successful religious structure.

These facilities are the thread in the overall social fabric of our communities. Therefore, the importance of these projects should not be understated. Our firm takes our role on the building team seriously. We meet our clients’ objectives by demanding the most from ourselves. Our firm has performed structural analysis, design, and evaluation services for a multitude of religious facilities.
