A Top Orange County Structural Engineering Firm
Company Principal Robert Lawson has been the Engineer-of-Record on nine Progressive Architecture Annual Design Awards and forty-seven California Regional AIA Awards. A member of the Structural Engineers Association, Robert was a Charter Member of the Seismic Committee, which established the first Municipal Ordinance in CA mandating retrofit of URM buildings. Sensitive to the history of the buildings, Robert brings an extensive knowledge of historic building materials to each historical rehabilitation project.

Partner Tom Burke’s structural design expertise was an important element contributing to the success of the Musselman Building project, which required a seismic upgrade of a three story URM (unreinforced masonry) building. A particularly challenging seismic engineering project, Tom’s creative solution (as described in the detailed project description) achieved the project goals, saving the client the time and extra money originally anticipated.
