Meeting Industrial-Sized Challenges

Industrial and Manufacturing Structural Services

The facilities responsible for our modern goods and services have to be well-designed with resilient materials. McClure’s Industrial and Manufacturing Structural Services provide solutions for the myriad of unique obstacles posed by industrial infrastructure.

Our engineers have years of experience drafting plans or analyzing existing projects for their structural integrity and overall efficiency. Whether your business needs to withstand heavy use or hazardous materials, McClure gets the job done. As other industries crumble under poor design, yours will endure and succeed. Speak with our engineers for more information about the unique perspective and industry expertise we can provide your next project.

Industrial Structural Services

Modern industries require custom designs for their utilities, floorplans and other systems vital to the products or materials they work with. McClure’s structural engineers can assist with the design and construction of these industrial buildings through each step of the process, including:

  1. Site Investigation: building sites must be carefully reviewed before a project can begin. The local geography can greatly influence any given site’s ultimate suitability. For example, perhaps the soil composition is poor. This can reduce the site’s ability to support heavy loads or lead to water damage.
  2. Planning and Drafting: we work closely with architects, and other professionals to ensure plans and drawings meet the project’s structural requirements. Structural details include the design of a building’s foundation as well as accurate information about the range of loads your building will experience during use.
    1. Dead loads refer to the weight of the structure itself. Flooring, walls, and even fixed décor will be included in your building’s total dead load.
    2. Live loads apply to anything that can leave or enter the structure, such as the materials it uses as well as the final product it sends out. Staff, vehicles and anything transient will generally be considered part of the live load. Because they are moving, a quality structural engineer should ensure load-bearing elements can withstand a dynamic environment.
  3. Construction: Many structural engineers can remain an active part of the process during construction. Oversight can prevent construction defects by centralizing all relevant information through an expert. When designs or plans are changed, a professional structural engineer will make sure the changes meet structural requirements. For example, if a change in the floorplan will be more efficient, the engineer can confirm whether or not the foundation or other load bearing elements should be adjusted.

Manufacturing Structural Services

Manufacturing is unique among industrial services due to the development of a working product. Manufacturing plants should be designed and constructed as efficiently as possible for the profitability of their finished product. McClure’s structural services can improve the design and efficiency of utilities, conveyors and even specialty systems.

With our expert engineers, we can identify how to optimize logistics and even the manufacturing process itself. Sometimes replacing or modifying a single piece of equipment can improve your plant’s efficiency across several metrics. You can count on McClure to identify how minimal changes can result in maximum effectiveness.

We can also assist with new construction, ensuring peak manufacturing efficiency from the very beginning.
