Commercial, Retail & Residential
A new housing development. An outdoor shopping center. A multi-story office building or parking garage. The Residential, Retail and Commercial industries are a part of our everyday life, places we live, work and play. While we have come to expect the places we live, the places we shop and the places we work to have modern facilities and amenities, it is easy to take for granted that all of these are dynamically impacted by the engineering world.
- Can the proposed construction area sustain the utilities needed for the housing complex?
- Will traffic be negatively impacted by the new retail center, and are new roads and access necessary?
- Are the materials used to construct this new office building sustainable and safe for the environment?
- Is the structure of the high-rise condominium conducive to the safety and longevity of the structure?
Pennoni Associates takes a vertical engineering approach for residential, retail and commercial projects. We can start your project at conception, assessing the site for environmental issues, surveying the site to determine the property lines and physical features, and planning the layout of the site. We advocate at the local, state and federal level as necessary to gain the proper approvals and permitting, and we participate in public hearings to gain citizen support through education. We can provide the site engineering necessary to make your Architect’s vision a reality, as well as supporting that reality through structural and MEP engineering. We inspect the construction to ensure it is done properly and safely, as well as testing the materials used to complete the construction. We do all this in the most environmentally sustainable way, and can assist in achieving LEED certification for your project.
The backbone of any Residential, Retail and Commercial project is the engineering. Let Pennoni Associates give your project the quality services necessary to make it a success.
The structural load bearing elements of building require inspection and testing to ensure quality, durability, and safety. The building code requires performance of these special inspections. Elements requiring inspection and testing include reinforced concrete, structural steel, engineered masonry, EIFS, fireproofing and foundations. Generally, the code requires performance of special inspection on all building structures, other than typical one- or two-story residential construction. Pennoni’s team of qualified professionals, inspectors and technicians has extensive qualifications and experience providing these services, supported by accredited laboratories and a multi-disciplined engineering firm.
