Background of Structural Design Development

Proper structural design has been one of the keys to ensuring that the buildings humans have erected since the dawn of history. Methods and materials have changed drastically since those early days, the buildings more substantial and much more complicated, but the foundations of utility and safety remain the same. Here are a few snippets of history to more recent developments in structural design:

  • The Industrial Revolution brought with it equally revolutionary innovations in the materials used to create our lofty structures and an understanding of their use. Steel production boomed, and it became one of the backbones of the skyscrapers that began to dot the major cities in the world.
  • Since then, our understanding of the world and the forces that can be exerted on our structures has only increased, as has the quality of materials used to build them. Our engineering team can help with building on steep slopes and ensuring that your building has sufficient seismic strengthening.
  • The computer has all but replaced the drafting board, and the T-squares our predecessors used to create their designs. We can create designs faster using CAD software and even virtually test them to ensure their viability.
