Integrated Engineering Solutions

We are a firm of engineers and architects that offer a suite of specialty design and analyses, either as standalone services or as part of a broader scope, that solve complex design challenges, improve constructability and maximize efficiency.

As a multi-disciplined engineering firm, we collaborate with architects, owners and developers to design solutions for projects of every size and level of complexity. Our comprehensive in-house services address the full life cycle of a structure throughout design and construction phases.

As a fully accredited Class I Special Inspection agency, our team provides a complete spectrum of inspection services to help clients fulfill NYC DOB regulations as listed on the TR-1 Technical Report Statement of Responsibility.

Our team provides an array of structural monitoring services as required by NYC DOB TPPN 10/88 including vibration monitoring, optical monitoring, pre-construction documentation and crack gauge monitoring.

FEATURED PROJECT

Innovative Monitoring Solutions at the Future Powerhouse Workshop

DRPILLA was awarded a contract to provide structural monitoring services at the future Powerhouse Workshop in Brooklyn, NY. Our services will provide crucial insights on the current and future implications of structural movements while minimizing safety and structural integrity concerns during and after construction. Built in the early 1900’s, the once abandoned facility was acquired by the Powerhouse Environmental Arts Foundation to be rehabilitated and converted into a new contemporary industrial fabrication center to serve the needs of working artists. The future building program will allow for flexible workshop configurations, exhibition spaces, as well as community space for research and exchange.

FEATURED PROJECT

Six-Story, 72-Unit “Beverly’s Place” Tops Out

DRPILLA is the structural engineer for this six-story, 62,000-square-foot residential housing project known as Beverly’s Place in Brooklyn, NY. The structure was recently topped out and upon final construction will offer 72-units of affordable housing to formerly homeless individuals and low-income residents. The existing 19,777-square-foot site was once occupied by three single-story warehouses which were demolished to make way for the new construction. A key feature of the building is the glass tower which spans the height of the building. A concrete canopy supported by a single 16-inch diameter steel column makes a bold entrance statement. Community Counseling and Mediation is the developer, with OCV Architects behind the design. Occupancy can be expected by the end of the year.

FEATURED PROJECT

Renovated Worship Space Receives a Grand Entrance

DRPILLA provided façade engineering services for a new 40-foot-tall glass curtain wall entrance at the Church of the Presentation in Upper Saddle River, NJ. The glass entry provides a translucent walkway through the church’s narthex, which illuminates the structure and maximizes transparency. Stainless steel ribs flow upward to form a skeleton of support for the lateral wind loads. Details were designed unique to the building conditions and erection of the integrated system. The façade glazing was specifically considered for deflection and stress. A complete glass stress analysis and deflection criteria was developed for the mullion design system.
