Structural Engineering Services
JVA’s structural department is actively involved in numerous projects for clients nationwide. With more than five decades of consulting engineering practice, our combined technical staff of over 25 structural engineers and drafters will complete your project accurately and on time. Our main office in Boulder is strengthened by offices in Fort Collins and Winter Park that allow us to provide better service in the northern plains and mountain communities.
Work outside of Colorado comprises about 15% of our business. Whether designing custom residences in Jackson Hole, winery facilities in Napa Valley, veterinary hospitals in New England, or a $65 million retirement community in Tulsa, we bring a wide range of design experience to your team and a successful record of working with Architects, Owners, building departments, and general contractors.
While our principal focus is building design, we’ve developed expertise in use of alternative building materials and design of special structures including climbing walls, signage and lighting, art display, auditorium/stage rigging, timber frame structures, retaining walls, and pedestrian bridges.
Our reputation is based on our excellent service and production of thorough, well-coordinated construction documents. JVA’s early involvement in evaluating building systems can be crucial. It’s been our experience that smart decisions in the preliminary design phases of a project result in significant cost savings during construction.
We respond quickly and effectively to issues that arise during construction. Many members of JVA’s staff have hands-on construction experience that is invaluable in the field. We can expedite a set of shop drawings, make a spur-of-the-moment site visit, devise a detail to suit the immediate conditions, and suggest alternative solutions to construction challenges.
