Our approach to engineering projects combines classical engineering theory and practical experience, paired with the versatility and efficiency of today’s computer software for 3D structural analysis and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Since 1992, Barker Structural has been driven to create a company that’s valued by our clients and our staff. We use AutoDesk Revit to create structural models which interact and coordinate with architectural and mechanical models to develop a comprehensive building model to aid in the coordination of systems. Our engineers have access to the latest analysis software for all types of building materials and the expertise to generate astute solutions to complicated structural challenges. We are instrumental in integrating Evidence Based Design research, Lean principles, and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) into our design process.
