About the Company

Cranes have many different beams and connections for structural engineers to design and analyze. We specialize in container cranes, but we also work on a variety of different projects. There is a lot of work for structural engineers in this industry. Cranes can be very large structures that may be located in different regions which means they may need to be checked for hurricane winds or earthquakes. Often times cranes are loaded onto large vessels and delivered to the port where they will be used. These cranes need to be properly tied down so the voyage motions of the vessel don't cause damage. If these topics interest you, we want to talk with you!
