A Solid Foundation for Client Projects
Experience matters in structural engineering, and LHB’s team draws from a deep well of past accomplishments in its approach to client projects. Many of our engineers have two to three decades of experience in the field, and our collective knowledge includes work in concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and more. From highway bridges to park shelters, hospitals to industrial facilities, our work is diverse and dependable. And as a full-service firm, we offer clients integrated solutions for architectural and engineering projects.
LHB has years of experience in structural design of industrial buildings, including process, manufacturing, mining, maintenance, and related facilities. Our portfolio encompasses buildings, equipment- and process-support structures, access platforms, retaining walls, containment basins, cranes/monorails, conveyors, and outage support.
SUPPORT FOR MILITARY
We have strong relationships with local bases and intimate knowledge of their facilities. Our team has extensive experience with the Department of Defense design structural design requirements, including ATFP (Anti-Terrorism Force Protection) guidelines. Among our past projects are: hangars, fire stations, training centers, alert shelters, engine shops, urban combat training facilities, and more.
FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
LHB has a wealth of experience in finite-element structural analysis, from minor supports to intricate buildings, lattice transmission to substation structures. Our staff understands when 2-dimensional analysis is appropriate, and when 3-dimensional finite element analysis is required to obtain more accurate results.
CREATIVITY & PRACTICALITY
LHB’s technical staff are big-picture thinkers. At the start of each project, all known fundamentals are outlined, catalogued, and ordered along with our staff’s experience on the project type. This allows us to assess the best approach to meet our client’s needs. Sometimes the best solution is the simplest–but not always. That’s where LHB’s out-of-the-box thinking sets us apart.
