Pierce Engineers specializes in structural designs utilizing concrete, structural steel, wood framing, and cold-formed metal framing systems.

We also design various foundation systems as required for each project site.

Using our familiarity with multiple materials and framing systems, we evaluate multiple systems in schematic design to determine the ideal system considering constructability and cost.
