FIRST ENGINEERING provides consulting structural engineering design and construction administration services for healthcare, educational, hospitality, commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities. Many projects, such as high-rise structures, parking structures, industrial process structures and long-span structures require an experienced team knowledgeable about their unique structural requirements. Projects geographically located in areas of high seismicity, in high-wind zones, and in extreme cold regions also require special design consideration. FIRST ENGINEERING has designed many of these types of projects over the years and we have a comprehensive understanding of the required design guidelines and best practices to make these projects a success.
FIRST ENGINEERING strives to be at the forefront of the structural engineering profession by having knowledgeable, qualified personnel and equipping them with cutting edge technology. Our engineers and drafting personnel utilize Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology, The German software for the structural analysis (DLUBAL, RFEM) on the majority of our projects to facilitate coordination between the design disciplines and improve documentation for construction.
FIRST ENGINEERING currently uses two 3D software systems, Revit and AutoCAD Structural Detailing 3D, to accommodate the needs of our clients who use multiple design platforms.
