Our mission is to provide a client experience that surpasses expectations. At Gray & Fick we provide value added optimized structural engineering solutions that are tailored to what is important to our clients. We have the expertise and innovations of a large firm but with the responsiveness and personalized care of a small firm.
Established in 1973, Gray & Fick has executed on greenfield projects in a wide range of building classifications including commercial, institutional, residential, educational, community and industrial. These projects remove typical constraints that are found when working with existing structure and allow for an optimized cost-effective structural solution. We work closely with clients and as part of a multidisciplinary team to bring projects in on time and on budget.
Renovating and retrofitting existing structures often come with unique challenges and unknowns. Our experienced professionals are frequently able to mitigate oversights by mining for existing documentation and conducting site investigations. The time spent upfront on these projects help to uncover pitfalls that can lead to exorbitant overruns in budgets and timelines. Understanding that these projects are often labors of love for our clients we work diligently in a collaborative manner to review any pitfalls and ramifications of changes to the existing structure and then develop a strategy to complete the design.
Gray & Fick regularly conduct building condition assessments for pre-purchase, life cycle analysis and capital cost forecasting. Our trained professionals maintain a careful eye to assess potential problems and determine if evasive investigation is required. Our reports arm our clients with the necessary information so that they can be confident when planning.
Gray & Fick is a leader in the industry when it comes to project execution using the design build model. We excel as prime consultants on these projects and are comfortable leading multi-disciplinary teams. Partnering with a wide range of experienced builders Gray & Fick is able to design to the strength of the team and ensure the end client is accommodated with simple, robust and cost-effective designs.
