Structural Engineering

Engineering. The big picture is made up of thousands of details.

Coffman's structural engineering consultants offer a full range of services based on extensive project experience and innovative thinking. Our structural engineering capabilities include all types of structural analysis, design, evaluations, development of construction documents, and construction phase administration services. We assist various owners in taking projects from conceptual ideas through completed construction documents and follow the project during the construction phase; reviewing shop drawings, answering questions and performing construction observations. We work closely with all members of the design team to offer solutions through our engineering expertise and experience.

Creative ideas and practical designs using the latest technology are applied to projects utilizing steel, concrete, masonry, and wood as building materials. Our structural engineers are able to offer two and three-dimensional structural analysis under both static and dynamic loading, through the use of specialized computer software.  Additionally, our engineers are well versed with the variety of snow and wind load conditions found throughout the Northwest and the hurricane force winds in the Pacific Rim.
