Partnership in Planning, Design and Construction

Every building is more than the sum of its parts: in concert with its design, a building can be an office, a home, a center for learning, a place for healing, a podium for governing, a point of departure, and more.  Understanding that purpose is the key to distilling the essential components of every project, and is the basis on which good structural engineering is founded.  Independent of size and shape, regardless of materials and features, on any site, anywhere, Lund Opsahl brings a wealth of experience and a rigorous analytical approach firmly grounded on this foundation to the design and detailing of every structure.

Active members of any design team, we seek to build relationships across professions, enabling broad collaboration that helps to identify risk, align efforts, and integrate an efficient structure into the fabric of the greater design.  Attentive and responsive during construction, we strive to support contractors with clear documents and cost-effective solutions to construction challenges.  From the beginning of a project to the end, we work to provide owners with creative design that serves to help realize the purpose and the vision for every structure.
