At Fehr Graham, we understand strong structures and buildings need solid foundations and designs to ensure your Illinois project is structurally sound. Our structural engineers are experts at surveying buildings or structures to provide recommendations on construction, restoration, or removal to preserve public and environmental safety and health. Thinking about building? We can help keep your project on time and within budget.
Not sure what materials to use for your building project?
A structural engineer can provide valuable insights into the steps, materials, permits, design, and overall planning when you start a project. Whether you are starting from scratch or looking to restore a building or bridge, our experienced team of structural engineers are prepared to create a tailored strategy to meet your project’s needs.
Why do we survey structures?
Our team uses a wide variety of techniques and technologies to ensure we can safely survey a bridge, building or other structure. Structures such as bridges are used frequently. They need to support heavy weights to create a safe connection for motorists and pedestrians. A survey helps determine the layout, abutments, substructure, potential contaminants and deterioration or any other damage that could render a design structurally unsafe.
Our structural engineering services include but are not limited to:
- Laser scanning and surveying.
- Data collection.
- Forensic engineering/failure investigations.
- Repairs, rehabilitation, and modifications.
- Demolition oversight and construction services.
- Planning and design.
- Inspection and assessment.
- Safety analysis and load ratings.
- Program management.
- Aesthetic improvements.
Why do you need a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment?
Partnering with the right environmental engineering team to conduct your Phase I ESA can help Illinois municipalities reduce project costs and secure additional grant funding to navigate your redevelopment project through municipal, state, and federal regulations. The Environmental Protection Agency awards assessment grants available annually that can help cover costs associated with site assessments and cleanup. Our experienced Phase I ESA consultants can help determine if you are eligible for funding.
