McNamara • Salvia brings award-winning creativity, innovation, and experience in structural design to a wide variety of project types. Operating in 16 market sectors, our experience spans the nation reaching from all areas of New York and New England, to the high-seismic regions of Las Vegas and California, to the hurricane climate of South Florida. We are licensed to practice engineering in over 40 states and our combination of local knowledge with global expertise allows us to bring innovative new ideas to projects while understanding local construction practices.
We understand that constructing a building is a team effort and we pride ourselves on working with the team to deliver quality projects both on time and cost effectively. Early and continuous involvement by our Principals will ensure the proper selection of structural systems and avoid costly design and constructability problems down the road. Our company is large enough to handle the most challenging assignments and small enough to provide the personal service on every project.
