ICS is working closely with licensed SE, in
the state of California and several other states have
extensive experience and expertise in the field of
structural design and analysis. We provide complete design
and analysis for all types of exterior building envelopes,
including interior and exterior ornaments and cladding
materials. ICS services also include but not limited to
preparation and review of structural systems and
calculations for a wide range of systems, such as but not
limited to systems listed below.
- Curtain Wall Systems.
- Space Frame Structures.
- Cable Structures.
- Stick Systems.
- Panel Systems
- Light Gage framing
- Blast & ballistic Resistant Facades / Structures.
- High wind Resistant Facades / Structures.
- Railing systems.
- High Span Wall.
ICS involvement is not limited to reviewing or preparing
a calculation package that meets the governing agency
approval. Our goal is to find the most cost effective design
solution for our clients and the project.
Often a design is developed before a structural analysis
check is performed, which can result in significant
revisions either to the wall system, the primary structure
design experience of exterior and interior wall systems
combined with our structural engineering capacity allows us
to address the architectural design development and
structural integrity of the system at the same time, a win
win situation for our clients.
ICS utilizes the latest software for the structural
analysis and optimization of system sizes and connections.
Our structural design process rages from static check of
members for simple systems, dynamic elasto plastic using SD
OF for simple beams with dynamic loading, to fully utilized
finite element analysis for complex systems. We recognize
that a detailed FE model, will best represent the studied
system, and will enable us to verify stresses and
deformations on each component.
