Residential Design and Framing
We design high end residential homes of all styles varying from timber frame homes to modern homes. We have designed houses from 1,400 sq. ft. to 20,000 sq. ft. Our design services are not limited to standard flat building sites either, a majority of our work is in custom home design on sloping hillsides. The deep foundation work is performed in house with close collaboration with our design team (geo-techs and surveyors).
We have designed large vibration isolation foundations for large industrial machines and equipment. Part of this design is also keeping in mind the means and methods of installation. We often have to design shoring for the excavation of these deep foundations.
Our commercial work includes big box retail stores and new commercial office space.
We have designed dozens of dental office and small medical centers over the years. Our medical experience is not just limited to structural design of the buildings, we have also worked on deflection sensitive support framing for medical scanning and imaging machines for the Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, and Summa.
We have designed every Stone Strong retaining wall system in the Ohio and Pennsylvania areas. We often get involved in designing retaining walls to support parking areas or to replace a failed wall.
We work close with local geotechnical engineers to design structural remedies to failed slopes. Often times this involves drilled concrete piers. Most of this work is performed along the shores of Lake Erie.
We have designed numerous pole barns for all different clients, farmers, commercial buildings, residential storage. We are well versed in the wood code and understand the unique design challenges posed by these buildings.
