Multidisciplinary engineering services to assess code compliance for buildings and other structures.
Building codes are intended to protect the public’s health and safety and are an important aspect of owning buildings and undertaking construction projects. SGH helps clients by evaluating code requirements and developing solutions for structures, building enclosures, fire life safety and accessibility, energy use, and other aspects of building performance. When innovative and complex projects fall beyond the bounds of prescriptive requirements, we conduct engineering evaluations and apply performance-based design approaches to help the project team demonstrate compliance or resilience. When local ordinances or evolving hazards require owners to evaluate their buildings’ existing conditions and vulnerability, SGH conducts assessments, prepares reports for the governing jurisdictions, and designs repairs, if necessary.
