As structural engineers, we collaborate with architects, owners and builders to achieve elegant structural solutions to meet the rigorous demands of the most technically challenging projects. DRPILLA’s structural engineering practice provides a complete range of structural design services for clients on projects of all sizes and complexity – from designing luxury urban buildings to engineering the most ambitious yet small-scale structures. We have been responsible for the structural designs of office buildings, hotels, residential, educational, performing arts, sports and medical office facilities.
NEW BUILDING DESIGN
Our structural engineering experience includes reinforced concrete, post-tensioned concrete, precast concrete, structural steel, timber and masonry on projects as diverse as private residential, commercial buildings, high rise residential towers, entertainment venues, long-span structures and mixed-use complexes. We design a wide variety of structural components and structural systems depending on each project’s specific needs – from preliminary structural systems selection through on-site construction administration. Our integrated approach to developing the optimal structure considers not only materials, but also the project’s economic, functional and aesthetic goals.
EXISTING BUILDINGS RENOVATION / RESTORATION
The most successful renovation projects are engineered with structural expertise and code compliant strategies to meet occupancy needs for each unique alteration. Our extensive work in structural modification utilizes creative adaptive solutions—both current and historical—to develop efficient and economical designs for existing conditions of all kinds. Whether we’re restoring landmark buildings, renovating a property for adaptive reuse, developing façade upgrades or building system improvements; our team has the experience, expertise and tools needed to tackle any challenge.
