Residential Structural Engineering
Linchpin has provided engineering services on hundreds of homes in the region, from small remodels and additions to new 12,000-square-foot estates. We provide full structural design services for homeowners and sub-consult to architects.
Commercial Structural Engineering
Linchpin provides commercial structural engineering on a variety of projects from new ski lodges to tenant improvements within existing buildings. We are comfortable with the scale of commercial projects and materials such as heavy steel, masonry, reinforced concrete, and light-gage steel.
From pump stations, to river crossings and stairs, to offsite SCADA centers, we can assist public agencies with their structural needs on many of their unusual structures. We are familiar with the public procurement process and can prepare construction documents that level the playing field amongst bidding contractors.
Piers, Docks, Bridges
Linchpin has designed numerous piers and docks as well as pedestrian and vehicle bridges within the Tahoe region. We understand the design criteria and methods of construction to design buildable and reliable docks, piers, and bridges. Linchpin has also consulted on numerous existing piers, docks and bridges, providing guidance on maintenance vs replacement.
