Structural Engineer

One of the most important branches within civil engineering is structural engineering. Specialized professionals design safe structures that resist loads from the weight of the structure itself and loads from the external environment while maintaining stability and reliability throughout the entire service life. What are some things a structural engineer in Los Angeles designs?

  1. Floor framework (binding rafters, beams, truss frames, flooring)
  2. Arches, braces
  3. Foundations and columns
  4. Roof framework
  5. Bearing walls

Sten Engineering is one of the well-known participants in the design market. Our company has a wealth of experience and can design any structure intended for residential use. The engineers at Sten are licensed professionals who are ready to help you out.


Structural engineers generally deal with specifications and make drawings, calculations, reports, and estimates. Sten Engineering’s staff is comprised of qualified specialists with the required education and deep experience in the structural engineering field who are constantly growing.

A structural engineer’s goal is to take into account the strength of the materials used to build a structure and all of the forces acting on the structure in order to create a design that is safe and functional. In other words, a structural engineer makes sure the forces acting on the building do not exceed the forces the building can resist. Analysis and design constitute an important part of the Los Angeles structural engineer‘s job.

The job of a structural engineer of Los Angeles begins with the creation of a preliminary design, where the configuration of the structural elements being used is assessed. With a detailed analysis, an engineer is capable of determining the load on an element and, ultimately, of calculating the strength of the structure more precisely and its compliance with the construction standards in effect in the region.

It is no secret that any structure is under constant load. It is subject to vertical loads as well as horizontal (lateral) loads.

Gravity is a constant vertical load. The weight of the structure, including finishing, floors, walls, and mechanical systems all have to be considered. Horizontal loads are caused by the wind and seismic activity which create lateral forces. 

The task of a structural engineer of Los Angeles, CA is to design a structure that can withstand any type of load that can affect it. No matter which engineer you choose to design your building, the structure should be able to resist the applied loads and the documentation should be free of errors.

We are a team of professionals who value our reputation and the time of each client. Hundreds of testimonials and references from grateful clients make us one of the Los Angeles market leaders.
