built with ingenuity
Since we first set up shop in 2007, we have designed, engineered, fabricated and installed projects we’re proud of with people that inspire us. Below are a few examples.
We elevate your project with custom fabricated parts like beams, columns, moment frames, embeds, and all other structural metal elements. Throughout the process, our team of engineers, fabricators and erectors measure every decision against your priorities – whether they are functional, aesthetic, schedule-driven, or all the above.
Turner Townsend Residence
Home Design: Fowler Home Designs
General Contractor: Stubberfield Custom Homes
Structural Engineer: Michael K. Brown
With the extraordinary vineyard setting and Mt. Hood in the distance, the design of this custom home called for unobstructed views to the East. Steel columns and moment frames provide the structure necessary to support the wall of windows and covered lanai that connect the eye to this landscape from anywhere in the house.
Taylor Hardware Building
Architect: Ernie Munch / MAP Architecture
General Contractor: Grant Company
Structural Engineer: Grummel Engineering
The historic Taylor Hardware building in McMinnville, Oregon, needed a major seismic retrofit in preparation for the next phase of its life as a brewpub and luxury lofts. Starting in the basement and working our way up, we added steel columns, beams and strong backs to support the unreinforced masonry. While much of the structural steel will never be seen, architectural elements like the steel stairs, structural column wraps, railings and an awning add to the building’s character while preserving its historic features.
Architect: Dennis Greenbaum Architect
General Contractor: Oblius Construction
Structural Engineer: Timothy Wolden
Set on a hillside that was slowly sinking, this design-forward residential project on the Oregon Coast presented some unique challenges. Together with the contractor and architect, our team worked through each one as we fabricated the structural frames, stairs, and supports for the deck and railings. For the exterior railings, we used marine grade stainless steel to prevent corrosion from the salty sea air.
