In the traditional role of sub-consultant to the architect, Providence has designed commercial buildings since the firm was founded in the early 90’s. Providence’s focus on its guiding principles of providing a constructible and affordable design in a timely way to ensure that not only will our designs be code compliant and meet the architect’s intent for the building, but also that we’ll be working with an eye always on the owner’s budget, the fact that the contractor will need to be able to build it and that all design projects need to finish on time.
It is the fact that we do not simply do our structural design in a vacuum that makes Providence a valuable member of the design team. Not only do we work closely with the architect, but we also coordinate directly with the architect’s other design sub-consultants and work to ensure that the final collective design is a well-coordinated, constructible building that the owner will be proud of and that will make the architect glad they chose Providence.
“Anytime we run into a situation on the jobsite that requires a structural engineer’s determination, I immediately call Providence Engineering. Their responsiveness and understanding of jobsite conditions is unmatched. It is nice to know that we have a true partner to help us through any challenges we encounter.”
