Structural Engineering & Design Consulting Solutions We Provide
Our commercial & industrial design consultants aim for buildings that cause the least trauma to the surrounding environment while affording occupants the highest degree of safety and comfort.
Structural Capacity of Structural Components of Buildings
When we consult with architects and property owners, MNA professionals apply sound principles of physics and mathematics to confirm the strength and appropriate flexibility of every building component and segment. In this way, we avoid any flaws and vulnerabilities that would otherwise compromise the project's integrity. In addition, this evaluation is performed at every stage, from architectural renderings to shop drawings.
Structural Aspects of Deep Foundations
Large buildings are only as sound as their foundations. The ability to withstand the violence of the natural elements, or the intentional damage of vandals and saboteurs, begins with the nature of the substructure. MNA clients see the emphasis we place on bedrock, groundworks, and basements when we evaluate a building or design. When you engage our consultancy for structural engineering, you can rest confident that we look at everything from the bottom up. We have the solution.
Welded Steel Fabricators and Erectors Qualification
The super-structure deserves no less meticulous scrutiny. Calibrating the strength and tension in steel beams is no easy task. MNA engineers are masters of the fusion welding process, so we take special care to supervise both gas-shielded flux-cored arc welding and self-shielded flux-cored arc welding, using shielding gas and flux powder, respectively. This is key to a reliable frame.
Sectors We Serve
MNA Quality Consulting expertise is found in a variety of structural settings. This fact demonstrates that, while applications of principles may differ according to the venue, the principles themselves do not change across the field sector of services.
- Hospitals and clinical settings - are places where many occupants do not have complete freedom to move about. Designs here must be sensitive to emergencies and contingencies.
- Detention centers - likewise involve restrictions on mobility, this time for security reasons.
- Assembly centers - i.e., places where people gather to see sporting events, hear concerts, look at exhibits, or participate in civic/judicial processes.
- Residential locations - where apartment complexes and high-rises house sometimes hundreds of households.
- Mercantile properties - where goods and products are exchanged for money such as shopping malls, box stores, retail outlets, etc.
- Business venues - these are often office parks or buildings in which multiple commercial suites are situated.
- Industrial buildings - where manufacturing or storage takes place. These pose different hazard levels to occupants, depending on the industry.
- Special Projects: We can take on other special projects, in other assets, as needed.

Our Structural Engineering Consulting
and Design Process
The best collaborations begin by talking things through and then following an ordered series of actions to a completed structural design.
Consulting and Advisory
This initial phase of consultation includes estimates of time and financial requirements, introductory meetings, and provisional imaging. Other discussion centers on permit acquisition and alternate design options.
Structural Engineering Project Plan
At this point, we factor in the client's purposes, budget, and time limits. We also pull in another structural engineering consultant or more to discern feasibility obstacles and coordinate the work.
Professionals working at this stage lay out the parameters for the project, dimensions, capacity, specific locations, and methods applied. Other considerations include examining the criteria for a project brief outline, specification formulation, and conceptual sketches.
The structural design point person surveys other consultants on the job regarding preliminary drawings and specifications, possible substitutes for the same, and the prerequisite documentation to get permission from appropriate government agencies.
The weaknesses, gaps, and question marks of the preliminary design are corrected, filled in, and answered, respectively. Meanwhile, supervisory government agencies receive a steady stream of follow-ups.
This penultimate phase is when contractors are considered, and bids are solicited and evaluated. Moreover, upon receipt of an acceptable bid, MNA helps the client tender offers and, sometimes, receive counter-offers. Once an offer is accepted, MNA aids in contract preparation.
When construction commences, MNA does not just walk away. In addition to visits to the site, our structural engineering consultant engages in a review of all applicable shop drawings to confirm that efficient engineering solutions are adopted. A structural engineer inspection works to make sure there are no flaws in the actual erecting of the building.
Technology and Software Tools We Use
While drawing boards, protractors, and T-squares are still around, MNA employs the most innovative and up-to-date engineering technology in its quest to be a solution-oriented structural design agency. However, each and every program and device is customized according to project requirements.
- Analysis software that takes two-dimensional and three-dimensional perspectives
- Software that conducts analyses based upon dynamic information of a client's choosing
- Drafting programs - again both 2-D and 3-D - with safety inspection programs
- Online engineering resource collections

It has been a great pleasure working with Monika. Her ability to influence others to achieve the team's vision is remarkable. Her endless support proved to be a great asset for any team out there that are looking for a great motivational supporter. Her knowledge brought upfront at the start of project and has been playing a valuable role since. It was a bitter sweet moment when the project was done and have to say goodbye to her as we all value her work very much.
