Construction Engineering / Means & Methods
In construction there is, more often than not, a number of ways to approach construction that comply with design and code requirements. Some construction approaches are mission critical and require strict adherence to the engineering documents. But recognition of the expertise and experience of a qualified construction contractor and a willingness to listen to and consult with a contractor during construction is also important and a huge key to a successful project.
Peterson Structural Engineers provides design and consulting services to general contractors for temporary structures required during project construction. This can include design of temporary shoring for staged demolition, cofferdams, tieback shoring walls, falsework, sheetpile walls and other excavation and support structures.
We are highly knowledgeable of construction issues and understand that each project presents challenges during construction that musts be considered; particularly on projects where existing conditions cannot be fully verified until construction begins. We work with contractors to accurately and efficiently resolve construction questions, issues, or required deviations from proposed construction plans. Understanding the construction process is critically important to a project’s success and PSE has been working with contractors for more than 30 years.
Additionally, we know that economical designs and timely responses are critical to a successful project - key points that guide us when assisting our contractor clients.
