Engineers – Professional Resources

We have Professional Engineers on staff, including a geotechnical engineer, to answer your questions. We’re happy to work with you to develop preliminary designs or lead a Continuing Education course for your firm.

Engineers

When you’re designing an underpinning solution for new construction or a repair, you need to know the technical information on piering products. We’re your resource for underpinning and moisture management solutions.

And when it’s time to being the project, we’ll work with other contractor’s schedules, and we’re cost effective on small jobs.

Professional Engineers on Staff

Having Professional Engineers on staff is not an industry standard. JES believes that the expertise of a Professional Engineer is required to design the best solution for structural repair, new commercial construction underpinning, waterproofing and moisture management.

Preliminary Designs

JES can assist you if you require preliminary designs for your commercial project. All of the foundation stabilization and underpinning products we use and recommend have been evaluated by the ICC-ES. The ICC-ES evaluates products, components and materials to ensure safety and compliance. Contact us for more information.

Additional Resources from FEMA’s Foundation Analysis and Design

Reinforced concrete footing are proportioned according the provisions of ACI 318, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. It is often opined that foundations should not yield, due to the high cost of foundation repair. However, nonlinear soil behavior is common in strong ground shaking, and it is traditional to design foundations for the reduced forces computed with the response modification factor, R, used for the superstructure. Neither the NEHRP Recommended Provisions nor earlier model building codes required the use of amplified forces for foundation design.
