Building Engineering

In the eyes of TranSystems’ building engineers, your facility requirements are unique.  That’s because few operations are identical from facility to facility, even within the same company or governmental department.  And it’s your unique operation that dictates a building’s ideal structure.

So it’s no wonder that clients with truly one-of-a-kind building requirements turn to TranSystems for a solution.  We have designed the nation’s largesr-volume and most automated grocery mega-distribution center; a 55-gate airport terminal, the largest ever built for an individual airline; a massive ship-building facility with a 120-ft span that houses a 250-ton crane; and a quarter-mile long, totally refrigerated produce market surrounded by docks on all sides. We bring clients excellence in design of conventional structural frames, conventional block buildings, precast building designs, pre-engineered buildings, multi-faceted combinations of steel frame and precast, tilt-wall frames and panels, insulated cold storage, rack-supported, explosion-proof and high hazard, and siesmic.

For a pasta manufacturer, we figured out a way to build a facility with no dust-collecting horizontal members.  And for a flavoring producer, we engineered a high-hazard, explosion-proof building with independent frames. Our buildings are also engineered with sustainable long-life built in.  In 2011 alone, our designs won two coveted Air Force Design Awards in the sustainability category, including the highest for a LEED Gold hangar. A new fisheries laboratory with a 500,000 gallon tank received an AIA Honor award before it was even completed in recognition for its “great promise for advancing sustainability,” with such incorporated sustainable strategies as photovoltaic cells, elaborate water retention systems, and vegetated roofs.

From industrial work horses to high-tech distribution operations,  to glitzy air terminal retail outlets, our uniquely-qualified building engineers deliver your uniquely engineered facility. We specialize in engineering buildings with the following intended functionality:

  • Industrial
  • Commercial
  • Retail
  • Office
  • Governmental
  • Hospitality
  • Aviation
