What we can offer

From initial consultation to full structural specification and construction facilitation, we offer a complete array of structural design services, including the development of advanced and often groundbreaking solutions when conventional approaches can’t deliver quality results.

Blast-resistant design

Our experts provide design services to develop building systems that can withstand the impact of blasts, improving the safety and security of occupants in high-risk environments.

Cold-formed steel design

With over 20 years of CFS framing engineering experience, we are a leader in this complex discipline—our designs provide structural integrity with tailored detailing to meet project needs from frame to finish.

Feasibility studies

Our team conducts in-depth studies to assess the technical and financial viability of construction projects, helping clients make informed decisions and minimize risks.

Forensic failure investigation

Our forensic experts investigate failures in building structures, providing detailed analysis and recommendations for remediation to prevent future failures.

Repair and rehabilitation

We offer repair and rehabilitation services for damaged or deteriorating buildings, developing customized solutions to restore them to their original condition.

Structural systems development

Our structural engineers provide innovative design solutions for complex building systems, optimizing structural performance while minimizing materials and costs.

Seismic assessments & engineering

Salas O’Brien offers seismic evaluation services to assess the safety of structures and determine whether they are likely to withstand seismic activity. We provide structural design for new construction and assessement and mitigation of existing buildings.
