How do you ensure design integrity and prevent potential failures in specialty structures?
For more than 50 years, Exponent has investigated structural failures ranging from major catastrophes to simple performance failures in thousands of construction projects. In studying the failures of the past, we have developed specialized expertise in manifold structural systems that have specialized functions and behaviors. Exponent's structural engineers draw on the firm's 90+ science and engineering disciplines, applying state-of-the-art analytical and testing methods, and offer specialized expertise in sustainable buildings, bridges, airports, parking garages, pre-engineered metal buildings, bulk storage structures, and underground metros.
Exponent's multidisciplinary teams can support a range of consulting requirements for specialty structures, helping to enhance performance and reduce failure.
