Structural engineers are trained to design the 'bones and muscles' that create the form and shape of man-made structures. They need to understand and calculate the stability, strength and rigidity of built structures. The structural designers are integrated with other designers such as architects and often supervise the construction of projects by contractors on site.
Whitchurch Engineering provides structural engineering design for individual residential homeowners to building complex structural systems for commercial and industrial industries.

North Coast Co-op
The $9 million project utilized sustainable materials and practices to expand and reinvent an old Big Loaf bakery building on the property; three of the original walls and the trusses from the bakery building were used. The full structure required the abandonment of a city alley and the reroute of a major city sanitary sewer line down US-101/4th Street.
