EDM

Structural

For over 40 years EDM has successfully collaborated with Architects, Contractors and Owners in the development of a remarkable portfolio of impressive buildings, bridges and special structures. We have provided special reports and forensic investigations that have helped resolve important construction issues.

During this time, our practice has evolved to focus on three characteristics which define our business and design philosophy;

RELIABILITY

Consistently delivering accurate practical structural solutions on time and within budget

CREATIVITY

Using imagination and extraordinary technical capabilities to add value to projects

ADVOCACY

True partnering; always acting in support of the goals of the client and owner
