Solutions for New Construction

Building Design

The Experienced, Proactive Partner You Need

Today’s new construction is increasingly complex, and we understand how much is on the line. It’s why finding the right structural engineering team is so critical.

Dunbar’s people-focused perspective means you can count on us to be your proactive and responsive allies, as vested in your goals as you are.

You also can count on us to keep our eyes on the big picture while managing all the minute details that, if not carefully considered, can create costly problems in the future.

We’re committed to being the ideal structural engineering partner that our construction clients need – a team that seamlessly integrates into yours, and always makes you our priority.

Building Design

Dunbar offers full structural design services through all phases of design, documentation and construction. Our project managers stay with the job from schematic design through contract administration, providing superior continuity for your project.

Building Information Modeling (BIM)

Dunbar has a reputation for its progressive use of technology, staying not only current, but also ahead of the curve.

We use Revit for computer-generated documentation, which enhances team coordination, reduces errors and, ultimately, prevents re-work.

Sustainable Design

Our LEED accredited professionals incorporate sustainable design principles during the preparation and development of construction documents for our building construction projects. Dunbar’s engineers encourage and are trained to contribute to life cycle analysis in an effort to reduce the global impact of construction.

Dunbar is very responsive and provides a high-value service. They're very friendly and they'll work with you any way you need them to. In fact, they're advocates for us and are a vested part of our team. They will tell us “that's not a good idea” if something is not in our best interest. Or, they’ll say, “That's a good idea, but here’s a less expensive way to do it.” It’s so important because if you don’t have a partner you can trust, everything falls apart.
