Tharpe Engineering Group provides innovative, yet practical, structural engineering solutions for a broad range of commercial, educational, hospitality, large-scale residential, adaptive reuse, and historic preservation building projects.
We deliver safe, cost-effective, and constructible designs that have been consistently tested and proven to withstand all environmental and serviceability constraints. Additionally, we hold a distinct aptitude for adaptive reuse and historic preservation projects.
Structural Engineering Design
Our engineers design every component of a building's structural system to ensure that all safety, strength, and serviceability requirements are met, while respecting aesthetic value and budget goals.
As an integral part of a successful building project, our firm oversees the contractor to ensure conformance with the design intent and approved construction documents throughout the duration of our projects.
Structural Condition Assessment
Highly skilled in field evaluation and analysis of existing structures, we apply the use of cutting-edge preservation and reinforcement technology to historic building systems for lasting preservation.
In order to assist contractors, our firm helps facilitate the design of specialty structures and methods and sequencing of construction to ensure safety and code compliance during the construction phase.
Our new construction experience encompasses building systems comprised of structural steel, reinforced concrete, masonry, cold-formed steel, and timber. With our vast understanding of the behavior of such materials, we are able to apply our knowledge and proficiencies to incorporating these materials, where appropriate, into historic and existing buildings and have successfully completed hundreds of adaptive reuse and preservation projects.
