We are a structural engineer in Edmonton


Structural engineering is a discipline that focuses on the design and analysis of structures, such as buildings, bridges, and other large-scale structures, to ensure they are safe, stable, and secure, enhancing the performance and longevity of residential and commercial properties.
Structural engineers use their knowledge of mathematics, physics, and materials science to create designs that can withstand the forces of nature and human use, incorporating seismic design principles when necessary.

They also play a critical role in the construction process, providing building assessments, project management, and inspection services to ensure the load-bearing capacity of structures meets requirements.


  • APEGA Permit to Practice.  required for all engineers in Alberta, ensures engineers are qualified and held to high standards, including expertise in retrofitting existing structures.
  • Professional Stamps in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia : Engineers must be licensed to stamp and sign off on designs.
  • Errors and Omissions Insurance : Protects engineers and clients from financial losses due to mistakes in work.
  • Building Assessments (Structural) and Reporting : Structural engineers assess building conditions, evaluate structural integrity, and provide comprehensive written reports.
  • Engineered Project Design : Structural engineers design safe, stable, and secure structures.
  • Turnover QA/QC Packages : Engineers provide quality control during construction to minimize risk of errors.
  • Building and Development Permit Applications : Engineers assist with obtaining building and development permits, ensuring compliance with local building codes and regulations.
  • Soils Bore Holes & Recommendation: Engineers perform soil analysis for foundation design recommendations.
  • Project Management – Consultations: Engineers provide project management and consultation services.
  • Grade Beam and Foundation Design : Engineers design grade beams and foundations to provide stable structures.
  • Engineered Pile Design : Engineers design pile systems for deep foundations, incorporating sustainable design principles where applicable.
  • Engineers Inspections and Compliance : Engineers provide inspection and compliance services to ensure structures are safe and implement structural failure prevention measures.


The average cost of structural engineering services in Edmonton varies depending on the complexity of the project and the location, but our engineering consultants provide great value for your investment.
On average, it can range from $1,500 to $25,000 or more for a typical residential building project.

Factors Influencing the Cost of Structural Engineering Services in Edmonton

However, the exact cost will depend on factors such as the size of the project, the quality materials used, the complexity of the design, and the location where the work is being done by our experienced engineers in Edmonton.
It’s also worth noting that many structural engineers charge an hourly rate for their services, so the cost can vary greatly depending on the scope of work required, but our engineering Edmonton team offers competitive and transparent pricing.

  • What is the purpose of structural engineering services? The purpose of structural engineering services is to design and analyze structures to ensure they are safe, stable, secure, and functional. Structural engineers use principles of physics, mathematics, and materials science to determine the best way to support and resist loads and ensure a structure meets the necessary building codes and standards.
  • What types of structures do structural engineers design and analyze, and how do they perform stress analysis on these structures? Structural engineers design and analyze a wide range of structures, including buildings, bridges, towers, tunnels, dams, offshore platforms, retaining walls, foundations, and temporary structures such as scaffolding and shoring.
  • What materials are used in structural engineering design? Structural engineers use a variety of materials to design structures, including concrete, steel, timber, masonry, and composites. The choice of material depends on various factors such as the type of structure, loads it will need to support, environment it will be exposed to, and budget.
  • How do structural engineers ensure the safety of structures, and what role does structural health monitoring play in long-term maintenance?Structural engineers use hand calculations, advanced computer simulations, and rigorous physical testing to ensure structures are safe and comfortable for occupants.
    They consider environmental loads, material properties, and construction methods to minimize the risk of failure and promote long-term safety and stability. Regular inspections are also performed to maintain the safety and security of structures.
