Sinkholes can be very dangerous and often happen without warning. Here are five things you should know about sinkholes.
Shield’s structural engineers have over 20 years of design experience with single- and multi-story residential, industrial, commercial, and multi-family buildings comprised of steel, light gauge metal framing (LGMF), timber, and concrete elements.
In addition to new buildings, Shield’s structural engineering team designs bridges and bridge elements, large headwalls or wing walls, large culverts and associated stormwater structures. Shield Engineering also specializes in design of reinforced concrete slabs, foundations, pre-cast building components, retaining walls, and concrete frame systems.
Over the course of a structure’s life, beams, trusses, chords, and load-bearing walls can be cut, broken, damaged, burned, or in some manner, compromised. Shield’s structural engineers provide forensic evaluations and individual design solutions for these problems to ensure your facility is structurally sound.
