Engineering Effective Solutions in a Complex World
Structural Engineers Group, Inc. (SEG), based in Jacksonville, Florida, has over 68 years of structural engineering service in the southeast U.S. and was formed in 1993 by the merger of two highly regarded well-established firms. SEG has extensive experience in project types ranging from University and Medical Facility projects to Commercial, Industrial, and Residential structures. Many customers such as Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville and most Florida Universities are repeat customers for major projects as well as for continuing structural design services. SEG has been a continuing services provider for University of North Florida, AT&T, the U.S. Military in the past and for the University of Florida since 1999 and Baptist Medical Center for over 20 years.
In order to provide the client with an economical structural solution SEG evaluates multiple factors impacting the selection of structural systems for use on each project, starting with the Architectural concept and construction budget and extending all the way to LEED applicability and schedule and/or site restrictions. Utilizing technical design processes including state of the art computer structural analysis programs in conjunction with 3D modeling of structural systems in Autodesk Revit (BIM) for the majority of our projects and construction document production, we pay significant attention to the issues of project planning, structural construction cost, the design process, coordination with other disciplines, and timeliness of document completion. Traditional deliverables can be exported from the Revit model and, if required, AutoCAD can still be used on smaller projects.
SEG has an active quality management program focused on the continual improvement of administrative, management, and technical processes. With over 68 years of experience on all types of projects, structural systems and foundation types, SEG has the ability to formulate unique solutions to difficult problems. Issues of economical construction and constructability are of prime concern, as is the maintaining of open lines of communication with all team members.
