Wise and well-informed decision-making from start to finish is paramount to excellent structural engineering. Stratus expects sensible, economical, and valuable structural solutions to emerge as we listen to all stakeholders, gather our teamwide expertise, and continuously consider project goals.  

Stratus has broad technical expertise in the design of buildings and infrastructure in a variety of market sectors. This includes industrial, federal, local, and municipal government, local and state parks, food and beverage, commercial, petroleum/fueling facilities, aviation facilities, and utility infrastructure. Design project types include new facilities, expansions, and a wide range of renovations. Structural solutions often must be chosen to prioritize overall project goals such as maintaining facility operations, meeting outage windows, and construction sequencing. We also provide focused structural inspection and condition assessment services on a variety of structure types and historical importance to determine repair action plans, minimally disrupted operations, and historical preservation. 

Each project comes with a unique set of constraints, and Stratus is well-equipped to develop structural solutions and assistance from the concept phase through construction completion. We internally collaborate with the design team throughout the project timeline, use an extensive library of software, and prioritize cross-discipline mindfulness to develop creative and efficient solutions to projects.
