12 story reinforced concrete office building

Location: 2001 Eye Street, Washington, DC

Service Provided:

  • Structural Analysis
  • Structural Engineering and Design
  • Preparation of Construction Documents
  • Reinforced Concrete Design
  • Concrete Mat Foundation
  • Equivalent Frame Method for lateral loads on a Flat Slab Concrete Structure

12 Story Reinforced concrete office building with 3 levels of below grade parking and 1 level retail. Two way flat slab design with beams supporting ramps in parking levels and in areas of heavier loading. Tie beams for sloped columns in parking garage to accommodate the transition from the office space above to parking garage below. The basement perimeter walls were designed as retaining for construction purposes. The lateral system was a concrete moment frame utilizing the equivalent frame structure. Structural steel framing was used for the mechanical spaces and architectural dormers on roof.

13 Story reinforced concrete office building with 3 levels of below grade parking. Similar to the design of 2001 Eye St. with the exception of the mat foundation design due to a bearing pressure of only 2000 psf.

CSR Shredder

CSR Shredder

Location: Harrisburg, PA

BE Structural provided design and engineering for a scrap yard to install an automobile shredder. Design included special foundations installed as “rock columns.” The control building and sort buildings were all framed with structural steel and concrete over metal deck flooring and metal deck roofing over rolled sections.


Associated Pennsylvania Constructors

Location: Harrisburg, PA

Bruce Ensor PE provided structural and architectural rehabilitation of a concrete framed structure when employed at Benatec.

Provided repair details and specifications, which allowed multiple bidders with a fast tracked schedule.

Harrison Street Water Facilities

Harrison Street Water Facilities, Elizabethtown Water Company

Location: Princeton, NJ

Bruce Ensor worked on the renovation of the filter house adjacent to the clear well.

The stone facade of the building was displaced due to inadequate design features and non-conforming construction.

The building was stabilized with the addition of structural steel supports erected on the interior face.


Ameron Tunnel Repairs

Project Name: Ameron Tunnel Repairs

Bruce Ensor was employed by a firm in Hawaii and provided site investigation of corrosion damage to a conveyor belt service tunnel supporting aggregate bins.

Bruce designed a replacement roof structure for the service tunnel and performed construction inspection of work as it progressed.


Plaza Bridge Repairs

Location: Honolulu, HI

Bruce Ensor, while employed at another engineering firm, designed the repair of bridge stringers that had corroded by the addition of continuously welded scab plates on the bottom flanges of the bridge.

Added cross bracing to replace damaged cross bracing and repaired expansion joints in plaza deck to stop leakage problem.


Repairs to Pier 52 & 53

Location: Honolulu, HI

Bruce Ensor assisted with the demolition of damaged bull rail on shipping pier.

We patched with epoxy based patching compound and reinforced repairs with concrete curb around bollards.

Racking Systems

Whether you are a manufacturer or a distributor for a manufacturer, BE can analyze your new racking design, reinforcements or relocation of an existing system to ensure state specific code compliance and safety requirements are met. Calculations packages are delivered with each analysis. Our professionally licensed engineers provide stamping and sealing of projects in the lower 48 states as well as Hawaii.

BE Structural assists the manufacturing industry in a variety of ways.   Engineering design and review of warehouse storage solutions are among them. Roll formed selective pallet racking systems are designed to maximize the storage of materials on pallets or skids. Palletized materials of all types are then stored in horizontal rows and typically have multiple levels which often requires a fork lift to hoist and place the pallets. These racks are designed with the ability to customize the space of each rack. This allows flexibility for storage materials that vary in size. Structural racking systems do more than just provide storage. They also provide support through their columns for the roof of the building. These are often bolted systems with greater load capacity. Both are frequently used in retail, warehouse and distribution. Warehouse storage solutions come in many varieties. They include but are not limited to:

  • Structural Pallet Rack Systems
  • Selective Pallet Rack Systems
  • Drive In / Drive Through
  • Flow & Pushback Racks
  • Cantilevered

BE Structural currently provides engineering design and review services for racking system clients in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas and even International clients from Germany and Mexico.

Mezzanine Design

BE Structural works with mezzanine manufacturers and distributors to provide engineering review, mark ups and state specific stamping and sealing services. Some manufacturers contract with BE Structural to perform value engineering services which improves efficiency while cutting the overall costs of their fabrication.

Mezzanines are predominantly used in industrial applications for the storage of tools and materials or for maintenance purposes. They can be permanent or semi-permanent structures and are most often constructed with steel, aluminum and fiberglass. Many manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors find mezzanines useful for utilizing unused square footage and space within their facilities. These platforms also provide a safe place to work above the hustle and bustle of pallet jacks, fork lifts and other mobile machinery.
