W|A structural engineers provide quality design services for buildings in wood, concrete and steel, including multi-unit residential projects, custom single-family residences, and commercial and industrial buildings. We also specialize in rehabilitation of existing structures, including unreinforced masonry and historical structures. 


Our extensive investigative and remedial design experience allows us to provide our clients with designs that are practical and affordable, and design solutions that anticipate and reduce potential construction problems.

Support Services for Architects
With well seasoned Engineers as part of its team, W|A Associates provides Structural Engineering Design and support to a broad and varied number of Architects, Designers and Artists.

Our Engineers take pleasure in their ability to capture the Architect's  design goals, including the development of multiple schematic packages to find the most cost-effective and architecturally fitting structural solution.  


W|A Associates is prepared to use its technical resources and experience to deliver the structural aspects of each project in the manner most suited to the Architect's objectives.

Investigation and Analysis of Building Failure
W|A Associates has extensive experience investigating design and construction deficiencies in buildings and other structures. Our services range from informal assessments to thorough destructive investigations and preparation of exhaustive reports. 

Services include evaluation of structural integrity, safety and performance of the building systems, conformance of the building systems with original construction documents and specifications, applicable building codes, and industry standards. With Document Review and Forensic services we are able to locate and identify construction deficiencies, analyze the impact of defects on the performance or safety of the structure, recommend solutions, prepare estimates of the cost of repair and identify responsible parties. Our comprehensive reports focus on resolution of the reported defects.
