Ground-Up Commercial Buildings

A ground-up construction project is building a structure completely from scratch, where nothing existed before.

We can assist you in every step: from site survey to structural and MEP design. Our engineers are well-versed in complex structures and offer consultancy for optimized plans and calculations according to design codes and regulations, making sure you get a permit.

Warehouse Design

Warehouse design is a specialty of S3DA Design, as such projects often require both structural as well as Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) designs, particularly for HVAC systems.

Our designs emphasize safety and development according to regulations while cutting down costs through value engineering. As a single source of both structural and MEP design, we also heavily reduce design clashes, saving valuable time and resources.

Data Center Design

Data Center design is another specialty of our company, as it relies heavily on electrical design, HVAC systems, and plumbing. Safety and efficiency are of utmost importance and proper ventilation has a direct effect on the costs. The buildings also need seismic retrofitting and may be enhanced by adding solar energy to reduce power consumption costs.

We are proficient in all the above fields, and being a single source of responsibility means utmost efficiency, time savings, and cost reductions for our clients who will not need to deal with design clashes, extra costs, or coordination between multiple parties.

Mixed-Use building

Mixed-Use

A mixed-use building combines several functions into one structure. For instance, parts of a building may be devoted to hotel rooms while other parts are used for residential units and commercial services.

S3DA Design has successfully designed mixed-use buildings, including the 73,000-sqft four-story complex Imperial Beach Blue Wave project, which includes hotel rooms, residential units, an underground parking garage, shops, a restaurant, and an office. We were deliberately selected because of our vast experience with different kinds of buildings and our ability to deliver structural and MEP design simultaneously.

Restaurant Design

Restaurants differ from other kinds of buildings because of the importance of their kitchen. A kitchen must be safe, competent, easy to maintain, and functional. Designers must prioritize ventilation systems, logistical necessities, and delivery and storage requirements.

Restaurants need extra expertise from MEP designers, and we are uniquely positioned to develop such plans as we offer both structural and MEP design.

Foundation Engineering

Foundation Engineering

The foundation transfers the load of the building to the ground and anchors against wind and earthquake. A strong foundation is crucial for a building to last long, therefore it must be protected from cracks, settling or sloping.

Our structural design engineers offer professional plans to protect your foundation against such damages, and will calculate for wear and tear and imperfect soil conditions.

Structural Calculations

While architecture defines the appearance of a building, structural engineering ensures the building stands up and can withstand heavy winds, earthquakes, or gravity loads. Structural calculations are the math behind this ability and determine the properties of columns, joists, beams, slabs, trusses, and other members that comprise a building.

Our structural calculation follows local building codes, therefore not only ensures you can get a permit but also consider value engineering to cut down actual construction costs.

“S3DA contacted me through LinkedIn and while I am usually skeptical of cold messages, I was in need of an MEP engineer so I thought I would give them a shot. After more than a year of working on several projects with their team, I have found them to be responsive, reasonable with timelines and budgets, and willing to stand behind their work. While there are many good engineers out there, S3DA’s customer service stands out as a valuable resource.”

S3DA Design is a very critical engineering partner for us and our clients because of their attention to detail and professional relationship building skills. They have a very sincere concern for the quality of their work and satisfaction of their clients. Our company provides residential design services requiring the services of a professional structural engineering firm. We have worked with other engineering firms in the past, but S3DA Design has out performed all competitors on several fronts including pricing. But more importantly, it is S3DA’s relationship building and communication skills that have impressed me the most. They sincerely care about the quality of their work and the satisfaction of their clients. I highly recommend them and their work.
