For over 30 years, our industrial building design solutions have been based on knowledge gained through our research, testing programs, and participation in hundreds of accident investigations. Our experienced staff work to develop industrial engineering designs resistant to loads from blast, thermal, and projectile hazards as well as toxic infiltration. BakerRisk structural engineers work with you to develop engineered solutions for new and existing buildings as well as customized structures that protect people and infrastructure from hazardous loading conditions.

Our industrial building design solutions have been implemented to protect a wide variety of buildings including government facilities, commercial office complexes, petrochemical control rooms, research laboratories, manufacturing facilities, and historic structures.  We have experience in applying our intimate understanding of structural response and risk mitigation strategies across many industry sectors.

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
