Did you know our blast-resistant building design services can be performed remotely?  Ideally, our structural engineers prefer to have site access to physically survey the building.  However, for years BakerRisk has been working remotely with clients to gather necessary information when a site visit was not possible.  While requiring a bit more site support than a traditional site visit, technology enables our team members to maintain the project’s schedule and deliver results for building design services such as:

  • Building response
  • Conceptual design
  • Feasibility studies
  • Final design
  • Construction support

Houston-based structural engineer John Dyer uses FaceTime to work with site personnel, which offers the ability to see around and inside buildings to gather pertinent data and take photographs when needed.  While structural drawings and site measurements are great to work from in terms of building capacity, seeing the building enables John to determine a building’s condition and confirm the drawings and building information.
