Structural Assessments

Structural Assessments:

Miller Engineering, LLC (ME) has performed many structural assessments for various building types. A structural assessment is a procedure to determine the integrity of the existing structure to carry current loads for a given time period and to evaluate the overall safety of the building and structural components. The degree of the assessment can vary depending on the objectives and requirements of the assessment. Our assessments typically follow the national publication from ASCE “Guideline for Structural Condition Assessments of Existing Buildings”. In most cases, our evaluation process begins with one of our Professional Engineers performing a visual observation of the structural components of the building for signs of potential structural issues that could lead to failures. Once the observation is complete a report is provided to the client with any safety concerns and recommendations for repairs.
