The Structural Department  was the beginning of Harwood Engineering. Over the years the department’s knowledge and use of different structural systems and methods have grown significantly. This is due to the wide range of experience and expertise of the structural department members.

The structural engineers are state of Wisconsin licensed Professional Engineers. Several of the engineers hold licenses in other states and LEED certifications. Past projects have ranged in value from less than $1 Million to over $160 Million.

A building’s structure has always been the backbone of a building. Many times this backbone is hidden within the architectural components of the building. But sometimes, the structure is the star and is a key element of an architectural design. The engineers at Harwood work hand in hand with the architectural team to incorporate the architect’s vision of the building. We pride ourselves in providing efficient structural designs, thoroughly detailed documents for constructability, and an expertly integrated structural design to incorporate the architectural vision.

Of the top Milwaukee-area special attractions listed in the Milwaukee Business Journal, the Harwood Engineering Structural Department provided the design for four buildings in the top 20. We are honored to be a part of the design team for these buildings which impact the entire community.
