Services

SMBH, Inc. enjoys the challenge of developing creative structural engineering solutions and we work closely with clients to ensure that the structural design complements the building. Our extensive list of services include:

Structural Design and Documentation
Design and documentation of building structures using all materials and systems available. Documentation can vary from traditional drawings to IPD and BIM.
Analysis and Investigation of Existing Structures
Services include analysis of existing structures for code compliance, investigation of the condition of existing structures and analysis of existing structures for feasibility of renovations and additions.
Failure Analysis and Investigations
Analysis and investigation of the cause of failure of built structures or structures under construction.
Expert Witness Testimony
Investigation and testimony design and construction disputes.
Design/Build
The Design/Build concept has conclusively demonstrated over the last 30 years that a spirit of collaboration among contractors, architects and engineers results in significant savings in time and money for building owners and reliable profits for all team members.
Foundation Systems
Design and documentation of foundation systems for pre-engineered building systems, manufacturing and industrial systems.
Feasibility Studies
Studies to determine the most efficient and cost effective structure. We will also provide feasibility studies for renovations and repairs of existing structures.
Code Analysis
Services include critical analysis of existing structures to determine if they are in compliance with current building codes.
Constructability Reviews
Review of structural designs to determine constructability. We can offer suggestions to make the structure easier and more cost effective.
Erection Procedures
Design of erection procedures for structural steel, concrete and masonry structures and crane foundations.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
BIM offers many advantages to a project, including streamlined communication, efficient collaboration and access to the information-filled model at any phase of the building life-cycle including design, construction and management. SMBH, Inc. was one of the first structural engineering firms in the Greater Columbus market to integrate Autodesk REVIT into our design service offerings.
Sustainable Design
SMBH, Inc. has been on the forefront of the green and sustainable design movement since its inception. Through our involvement on several sustainable projects, SMBH, Inc. has found early collaboration to be an extreme benefit to the project.
