It should go without saying that structural design begins with a deep understanding of the requirements of the job. But at SAI, we go even deeper and strive to understand you and your vision, and to anticipate the potential complications that are easy to overlook. We’ve been there, and we get it.

Commercial Structural Engineering Services


It’s important to begin with the end in mind. To understand the goals and aspirations of the home owner and to fully comprehend the vision of the architect. All this before we perform a single calculation. High-end homeowners have high-end expectations. We get that.

Nature is unforgiving and unpredictable and regrettably, bad things happen to good people. An uncomfortable truth is that luck favors the prepared. If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. You want to keep your loved ones safe and your valuables secure. We get it.

Dave Fordon – Executive Vice President Kent Companies Structural Engineer Services

Structural Associates has been an invaluable member of our team focused on expansion of our manufacturing and office areas.  Beginning in 2012, Bradford White has been “under construction” ever since.  The varied construction types of the BW facility complicated many aspects of the planning and execution of construction projects.  SAI has brought well engineered, creative solutions to our construction and expansion projects. We have been very satisfied with the level of teamwork, quality of work and timeliness SAI has brought to the team.

Mike McLellen – V.P. of Manufacturing Bradford White Corp. Structural Engineer Services

SAI and Notions Marketing Corporation have worked together for many years, the last a 115,000 sf addition. They proved their worth once again during that project. Most notable was a mid-build design change that saved us a lot of money, time and disruption. SAI has a strong record of good customer service with me. I enjoy working with Matt and his team and look forward to more projects.

Brad Williams – President ASL Architecture|Design Structural Engineer Services

We’ve worked with Structural Associates for 20 years and completed over 300 projects with them through that time, ranging from very small to very large. The one consistent theme through all of those projects remains their attention to detail and a close working relationship with our firm. When given structural design challenges, and specific architectural concerns about how we respond to those challenges, they’ve always managed to develop a solution that keeps both of us happy.

Ken Watkins – President Architectural Concepts Structural Engineer Services

I have worked with Matt Kromke of Structural Associates Inc. for many years. I have found them very professional and responsive to my needs. Sometimes on rather short notice. I would recommend them to anyone who is in need of structural engineering on any scale.
