Residential Design and Services
Some locales require a PE to sign off on deck designs or foundations, and Surinak Engineering, LLC frequently performs these services for a modest fee. The deck example shown was a more complex problem, where the deck was a second story, had to support a large fireplace, and also not impart any loads on the brick veneer of the home.
Surinak Engineering, LLC can also support more standard additions such as this garage expansion. The new garage also included a roof deck for relaxing. Surinak Engineering, LLC handled city required site plans in addition to structural and architectural plans. This homeowner had selected their own general contractor, and Surinak Engineering, LLC worked with the G.C. to ensure the end result met the homeowners expectations.
Surinak Engineering, LLC works with premier residential architects to make unique designs a reality. This homeowner had several large open spaces, changing elevations, and a one of a kind steel canopy structure as part of their dream home.
Surinak Engineering, LLC is familiar with the challenges of opening up older homes to provide that new open concept feel. We are familiar with both wood and steel construction and we understand the cost sensitivities of homeowners. Steel provides a lower profile, but at a cost, however, there are instances where steel is required. For this project the homeowner wanted an extremely long span with a low profile, and the contractor wanted to keep costs down. A multi-ply LVL was selected with proper end bearing to provide the final look the homeowner wanted.
