Structural Assessment / Enhancement

When evaluating a potential new use for a structure, it is often necessary to increase the capacity of the structural framing. If drawings are unavailable, the existing capacity may be unknown. Nelson Jones has performed numerous structural load reviews to evaluate high loads such as server rooms, high-density filing systems, safes, chillers/cooling towers, generators, or other mechanical equipment. We understand the specific requirements associated with these types of systems.

When it is determined that structural reinforcing is required, we have designed reinforcing for numerous projects to increase the capacity of concrete and steel structures. Because of the unique nature of the loading and space constraints, each project generally results in a unique solution.
