As structural engineers, we find ourselves riding in a lot of elevators.
It sort of comes with the territory -- making us no strangers to the proverbial,
but polite question, "What do you do?"
Ask any of our 120+ employees and you'll get one of 120+ unique responses
that, somehow, all say the same thing. See what our people have to say >
Collaborators. Listeners. Experts.
Founded in 1940, Degenkolb Engineers’ practice reflects more than seven decades of commitment to technical expertise, exceptional client service through close collaboration, and life-long learning. Our innovative structural designs have saved clients hundreds of millions of dollars and are delivered by taking full advantage of our expertise and experience.
The firm is distinguished by the ability to communicate complex technical issues in a way that our clients understand. Technical innovation derived through participation in the development of seismic codes and evaluation guidelines is a hallmark of our staff development. Our engineers have led or participated in the development of every US based seismic code used today. Because we know them so well we look beyond existing standards to what our clients need to know next.
Our employees are passionate about working in collaborative environments which help our healthcare, higher education, advanced technology, construction, and existing building clients achieve outstanding project results. We believe in a holistic approach to structural design, construction means and methods, and risk consulting.
We understand our clients have competing demands for their projects. Active listening and team integration result in the best solutions for each of our clients not just the best structural/seismic system. Our client-centric approach includes developing multiple options, advising teams on possibilities, and revisions based on the needs of the overall project.
We listen, reflect, consult, and advise. Our customized structural solutions meet every project need whether those needs are meeting stringent codes, meeting a bottom line, sticking to a hard construction schedule, or developing a structural system that creates a landmark.
