Sound engineering and clear communication you can trust.
Your Structural Engineering Experts
At Associated Structural Engineers, our design and consulting work is always founded on sound engineering principles which rely on local code requirements, specified materials, and availability of materials appropriate to the functionality of the building. We excel at understanding the entire scope of each project and examining the underlying factors impacting design. We strive to always provide clear communication with the client and other sub-consultants, making sure all involved have a thorough understanding of the design. This coordination ensures conformance to construction documents and a professional working rapport.
ASE is experienced in investigation residential, multi-family, and commercial buildings involving:
- Property damage resulting from fire, wind or water
- Property damage resulting from movement of expansive clay soils
- Documenting and analysis of as-built structural components in regard to potential design or construction deficiencies
- Documenting and analysis of as-built structural components in regard to future remodeling modifications
In addition, David’s expertise has allowed him to be called as an Expert Witness in several legal cases involving property damage disputes.
ASE can design any and all structures for residential, multi- family, and commercial buildings. Our qualifications enable us to act as specialty engineers in designing individual structural components and as the Engineer of Record responsible for your entire structural system. While designers and architects design space for us to live and work, structural engineers ensure that these structures are structurally sound. What we see once a residence or a building is complete is the result of all individuals involved. People using these spaces more readily observe the designs of the architect; however, they may not realize the immense coordination in which structural engineers and architects participate. Structural engineers are responsible for designing the structure(s) so that the final design both satisfies the client’s ideas and budget and the architect’s aesthetic while ensuring that the structure meets or exceeds all local code requirements. Associated Structural Engineers is located in New Braunfels, Texas but we serve the entire state of Texas. We lead and coordinate on projects ranging from foundation designs for custom home builders, to framing and bracing, both large and small in scope. We have experience with the following materials: Light Wood Framing Heavy Timber Light-Gauge Structural Steel Conventionally Reinforced Concrete Post-Tension Reinforced Concrete CMU Fall-Restraint Cable System Concrete Tilt-Wall
