Ware Associates provides a full range of cost-effective structural design services. By streamlining structural systems, we seek designs that minimize materials consumption but allow for maximum performance. We look for the most appropriate and beautiful way to support a structure and express that structure’s meaning. We consider use, intended lifespan, materials, detailing, cultural and historical context, budget, and overall significance of the structure within the project. Our state-of-the-art tools include 3-D finite element analysis, dynamic vibration studies, performance based seismic and wind studies, code level force analysis, integrated cost vs. performance analysis, and real-time behavior analysis.
Our principals and associates collaborate with other architects, contractors, developers, and municipal agencies throughout California, nationally and internationally on a wide variety of projects. Our focus is on high quality engineering and innovating solutions, and we welcome challenging projects that push the envelope of design and engineering.
