Each member of CRAFT has an avid interest in architecture, which allows us as structural engineers to more effectively communicate and collaborate with architects and artists as clients. At CRAFT, we understand the necessity for being open-minded and creative thinkers, which ultimately leads to imaginative problem solving and innovative solutions in structural design. CRAFT caters to the architect who challenges traditional notions of engineering design and construction practices and seeks a new approach to project delivery.
CRAFT offers structural engineering consulting services for the construction of new and the modification of existing residential, commercial and special projects in traditional and non-traditional materials during all phases of design and construction.
CRAFT employs cutting edge software for the analysis and documentation of these projects and collaborates with its clients to provide a seamless flow of information. Building Information Technology is used systematically to link documentation directly to analytical engines to create an efficient process of project delivery.
For the analysis of structures, CRAFT blends experience with computational and analytical tools to offer solutions to clients that are efficient, practical and innovative. Beyond traditional linear and non-linear analytical techniques, CRAFT also employs advanced tools such as solid Finite Element analysis for the structural design of components and assemblies with complex geometries or materials. In the analysis of fabric and tensile structures, CRAFT is particularly skilled in the use of Dynamic Relaxation techniques in the process of form finding and design.
We are looking for creative and dynamic team members to join our studio. As a structural engineering consulting firm, CRAFT distinguishes itself through its approach to design and construction. Our clients range from architects and artists to fabricators and developers. We seek to engage with our clients and create an atmosphere of mutual inspiration.
