About Us

Cascade works closely with our clients to make a positive contribution to the design process. This means personal attention and high quality engineering for every project. Our problem solving approach has led to in-depth understanding of complex structural issues for clients and creative functional solutions. We understand that developing a good structural design is only part of the project. Our staff works closely with contractors, building owners, facilities managers, architects, and developers to ensure our design fits into the overall goals and budget of the project.
