As part of the design team with CRB Consulting Engineers, SMMA provided structural design and construction administration services for the CMB project. The 200,000-square-foot building, equivalent to two Manhattan city blocks, provided an opportunity for SMMA to design and construct a large framework to support the client’s vision.
Structural engineering at SMMA comprises a unique blend of consulting engineering and practical collaboration. Our integrated design expertise is augmented by constant communication with the other disciplines in the firm, resulting in a fully coordinated team working in concert to create buildings that are streamlined, functional, and aesthetically captivating. SMMA's multidisciplinary organization informs our appreciation for and consideration of design issues outside the realm of structural engineering.
Extending beyond the traditional scope of services inherent to the integrated design process, the Structural Group provides consulting engineering to out-of-house architects and build teams. Our experience with schools, advanced technology and life science facilities, and multifamily residential developments is significant, giving us a detailed background that can be applied to numerous project types and locations. We utilize advanced analytical software, in conjunction with our 3D modeling tools, to create a maximally efficient BIM workflow.
Depth of Experience
Our engineers have deep institutional knowledge of existing structures in the New England area and beyond, and are well-versed in working with a wide range of materials—from wood and steel, to concrete and masonry—and construction methods. Our diverse portfolio stands as testament to our dedication to the design process and the successful construction of every building we create.
