Multi-family Residential Design

We believe in design at Human Scale. Long after we're gone, you, your family, and your tenants will live, work, and play in the buildings we touch. Most of the time, the structure gets covered up, so we're successful when our work lets your vision show through. Let us help you optimize your space with our systematic approach to multi-family design that promises both aesthetics and long-lasting structural integrity.

Whether you are executing a value-add on a existing multi-family building or starting from scratch, we work closely with our clients to deliver a process that best suits your needs. Multi-family design is the heart of our business - duplex, triplex, six-plex...2500-plex...our mission is to make our clients' lives easier.

Expect a Flexible Framework...

Traditional engineering processes always seem to say “no” more than “yes.” Our Flexible Framework enables us to think outside the box, transforming constraints into creative opportunities for your multi-unit project. Our approach to renovation or ground-up construction is rooted in a Flexible Framework that enables us to tailor structural engineering solutions that align with your vision.

From the initial concept through to completion, we provide simple and clear expert guidance in selecting the optimal materials and construction systems for your specific project, helping you understand the choices you’re making. In the end, you’ll be able to rest assured that your project is safely and cost effectively designed, and be thrilled with the look and feel of your building.

...and a Depth of Understanding

Our designs for multi-family buildings always involves a mix of materials, a strategy we call the ‘hybrid’ approach. It’s about using the right material for the right part of the building, given the market conditions and a deep understanding of construction. We help you understand the choices and then guide you to the best one for right now.

Too many structural engineers use a one-size-fits-all approach to keep THEIR costs down and leave you hanging with uncoordinated drawings and lots of unanswered questions. We leverage our team-based vast variety of project experience to thoughtfully meet the moment with the patience and deep understanding to keep YOUR costs down. We’ve worked with every material you could build with, and we will help you rest easy, knowing our experience is on your side.
