We provide a full compliment of building information modeling (BIM) services using TEKLA Structures
-Scott Adan, Principal & Founder

Adan Engineering collaborates with architects, owners, and contractors to develop creative structural solutions for all types of building projects.  As an integral part of the design team, we explore, develop, and outline structural options leading to the most practical and effective solution.  We draw on our knowledge, gained through years of designing and investigating structures, to appropriately balance performance, integrity, and cost.  Throughout the construction process, we work hard to anticipate issues, solve problems, and overcome challenges achieving the design intent for the completed project.
