"WJE’s in-depth understanding of risk, safety, and construction means and methods allows us to offer construction engineering services that benefit the designer, contractor, and owner."
— Richard Walther, Principal
The construction phase is often the most complex of a project. Structures are more vulnerable to failure during construction. Equipment and resources must be marshalled effectively to adhere to budget and schedule constraints. Constructability issues must be efficiently mitigated, and worker safety is the top priority. Owners and contractors rely on WJE’s specialized construction knowledge to properly detail and sequence construction work to maximize labor and resources, successfully execute the design documents, and avoid costly delays.
WJE engineers have extensive experience performing a wide range of construction engineering services for buildings, bridges, and other structures. These services include the development of erection and demolition procedures, rigging design, sequencing for repair or replacement, bracing, and stability in order to safely maintain the partially completed structure throughout the construction process.
Having worked on more than 125,000 construction-related projects, WJE engineers are familiar with the challenges of a construction site. Whether faced with limited room for placement of cranes or shoring, assembly sequencing for a complicated facade system, or in-field submittal development, WJE draws upon more than sixty years of technical expertise in structural and materials engineering to develop innovative solutions to construction-related problems.
