Structural & Mechanical Engineering Services

At EDC Management Corp, we provide a wide variety of structural and mechanical engineering services for our clients. Structural engineering improves the facility’s value by minimizing risk and maximizing efficiency throughout the lifespan of the structure. Similarly, quality mechanical engineering requires an experienced level of design, manufacturing, analysis and maintenance of mechanical systems.

Structural Engineering Services

Structural engineering sets the foundation for a strong, quality structure that can provide years of reliable service. When you incorporate professional design and engineering services into your construction project, you can ensure that all relevant standards and requirements are accounted for as safely as possible. Starting with a plan reduces the total time cost of any project, both by ensuring good design and reducing the risk of mistakes or needing to go backward.

New Structural Designs

New agricultural, industrial, and commercial facilities can be complex structures. Our engineers can methodically plan out the structural elements for buildings, infrastructure, power, and more. We not only work with new buildings, but also building additions and equipment support systems. Types of structures we provide structural engineering services for include:

Construction Types of Structures:

  • Concrete
  • Food Processing Facilities
    • Engineering design & expertise to accommodate higher standards for food processing facilities
  • Masonry
  • Steel
  • Wood

Industry Types of Structures

  • Agricultural
  • Commercial & Office
  • Industrial & Manufacturing
  • Paper Mills
  • Power Plants
