Building Engineering

Buildings seem to take on a life and personality of their own. Customized, responsive engineering design makes all the difference when it comes to safety, comfort, performance, sustainability and overall functionality. Attentive and dedicated, we are partners with our clients to help them achieve their unique goals for buildings and other vertical structures. We are known for innovative yet practical design solutions for a broad range of building challenges.

Understanding the Built Environment

Vital to providing great engineering is having an in-depth understanding of the built environment, and a broad portfolio of services supporting it. This includes environmental, geotechnical  and structural engineering services, as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design. Tighe & Bond provides all of this and more, through experienced staff with advanced degrees and specialized training in these fields. We work with clients throughout the life cycle of the built environment – from concept to completion, across the northeast.

Expand All

Structural 

We provide building design and inspection for new facilities, as well as addition or renovation projects. We evaluate and design all building structural systems. This includes roof decks, beams and girders, columns, masonry bearing walls, below grade concrete walls, and structural slabs. Our structural engineers also design equipment support structures, tanks and containment structures, as well as vehicular and pedestrian bridges.

MEP 

Tighe & Bond also has in-house staff dedicated to building system operations, and the ability to apply energy efficient designs involving the selection of efficient equipment. Our electrical engineering capabilities range from design of power distribution systems, standby and emergency power systems, indoor and outdoor lighting, fire detection and alarm systems, and utility process systems.

Our engineers design heating, ventilation and air conditioning, plumbing and fire protections systems for new construction and building renovations. We also provide commissioning services during building design, construction, and post-occupancy to support energy efficient building design and operation.

Geotechnical 

Clients also count on us to design foundations for buildings, smokestacks, water tanks, silos and other structures in all soil conditions. We have the expertise to handle every aspect of the design process from on-site supervision of the subsurface exploratory work, to the preparation of biddable construction documents and construction observation.

We have developed designs and construction methodologies to allow the construction of buildings, roadways, and embankments over very weak and highly compressible foundation soils. We are experts in geotextile reinforcement design for improving slope and surficial stability, and for subgrade strength.
