Since our inception in 1972, we have provided high-quality structural engineering services to architects, contractors, and owners. We design a wide variety of building types using an equally varying range of materials. We’ve done work in almost every sector; civic, commercial, education, healthcare, industrial, mixed-use, recreational, retail, and more. If it’s a building, we’ll design it!
Our firm was initially named Lantz and Jones, then Lantz, Jones, Nebraska, Inc, then Shelley Metz Baumann Hawk, and was shortened to SMBH in 2013 - each name reflecting changes in the firm’s ownership.
Our firm has a long history of relationship-building and collaborating with clients on exciting, challenging, and meaningful projects. We are deeply rooted in a culture of innovation and responsiveness. Our experience and eagerness to tackle new, demanding projects are our hallmarks.
