SMBH Does That: Pre K – 12 Edition

We do structural engineering for so many building types that, basically, if it's a building, we'll structurally engineer it!

We love the range of our work. The only downside of having such a diverse portfolio is that sometimes we're not well-known for designing the full range of buildings we work on. We try to share as many of our projects as we can on social media, but there are many that haven't been showcased. So, we went back through our archives to show you projects you may not have known are ours.

Pre K - 12 Education? Yeah, SMBH Does That!

We have been involved in literally hundreds of Pre K - 12 school projects. We have extensive experience working on specialized projects including early colleges, STEM, vocational and training programs, amphitheaters, and athletic facilities that run the gamut between stadiums, fieldhouses, and gymnasiums to all their necessary supporting spaces like locker rooms, concession stands, and press boxes.  We have worked on over $1 billion worth of OFCC projects in the last 10 years.

The new Dover High School project pictured here built a 137,854 SF high school to house grades 9-12 with a 16,532 SF Career Tech Space, a 1,200-seat auditorium, and a state-of-the-art gymnasium. It features a three-story academic wing, indoor/outdoor learning stairs, and a shared sunken courtyard and inner dining commons.

But we don't just do big educational projects! We also take care of smaller projects that pop up, like a duct chase infill we did recently at the same school. We looked at an existing CMU wall after a void was filled, providing analysis and necessary bracing and reinforcement details.

Big or small, when it comes to buildings we do it all. Contact us to talk about your next project today!
