Grossman & Speer Associates, Inc. (G&S) completes approximately 125 projects each year. Most of these projects consist of the analysis or design of building structures. Some are highly complex buildings. For example, the firm has engineered over 340 projects for Jet Propulsion Laboratory including specialized laboratory spaces, clean rooms, towers, cranes, antennas, laser table supports, blast chamber modifications, renovation of existing facilities, seismic upgrading and retaining walls.
We have engineered many public-school facilities, including K-12, colleges and universities with one of the principals serving as the Structural Engineer-of-Record. These projects required conformance with the Division of State Architect (DSA) guidelines and were submitted to DSA for approval. They have varied from completely new school campuses to building additions and modernization projects and have ranged in cost up to $107 million for a single project. We have also assisted many school districts with various maintenance and operations projects, requiring structural engineering services.
