FAE specializes in maximizing economy and value for all civil/structural engineering projects. We work as a team with clients to completely understand the challenges and offer well thought out recommendations, be it a small project or a highly complex project that requires our services from concept to job completion.
We use 3D structural analysis software to analyze most of the structures we design. We can develop a safe and economical structure or foundation based on the results of the analysis. We are experienced in analyzing the effects of a dynamic load on a structure from equipment such as hammer mills, impactors, iso crushers, screens, large fans, and centrifuges.
We have worked with many different building codes over the years and have a deep understanding of the effects of wind and seismic load on a structure, based on current building codes.
We specialize in building design for the mining, chemical, and food processing industries. We have over 40 years of experience in design of: large complex chemical lines, exhaust stacks, storage bins, silos, process equipment, support access platforms, civil designs, stall support footings, concrete bunkers for bulk storage, and waste treatment structures.
All of the industrial buildings we have designed have foundations ranging from footings for metal buildings, rotational equipment block footings, tall mill building footings, chemical tank footings, and containment.
