Degenkolb Engineers is the nation’s oldest and largest earthquake engineering firm. We're accustomed to fast-track projects, working closely with the architect to understand their vision and building owners to understand their business.
IPD. Design Build. BIM. We've been doing it for years. And we're never alone. We like to work closely with the project team to understand the whole project and process. This allows us to avoid costly or timely mistakes. In fact, our award-winning structural designs have saved clients more than $550 million in the past ten years.
Routinely recognized for innovation, we have won more than 100 national and local awards for structural engineering excellence in the past twenty years and are the only structural engineering firm in the country to have led or participated in the development of every US-based seismic code used today.
