Structural design is a major building block of any project, whether new construction or modernization of an existing structure.

RETTEW’s structural engineering capabilities provide our clients with the necessary support for safe, reliable facilities and infrastructure. Whether it’s working hand-in-hand with an architect, directly for a facility manager, or helping a building or bridge owner manage assets, RETTEW’s structural design team helps clients stay compliant, make more efficient use of materials, and reduce construction costs.

Aging infrastructure, coupled with little funding to update, expand, or repair, plagues many industries, from transportation to wastewater treatment facilities. And some industries are seeing an economic boost that requires structural expertise and investment: telecommunications, manufacturing, and even some infrastructure such as roadways and bridges. RETTEW can help clients determine the best, most practical solution within a desired budget range and, if applicable, explore project financing options.

Our engineers have more than 100 years of combined experience in structural renovation and adaptive reuse—and they maintain professional engineering licensure and keep up with advances in the industry. We are known for our context-sensitive, non-traditional bridge designs that save clients money and simplify long-term maintenance. Clients say time and again, they appreciate our responsiveness, focus on safety, and creative, efficient, cost-effective solutions.

RETTEW has the expertise and insight to design sound structures engineered to last.
