Consulting services in Colorado: architectural design, civil engineering, structural engineering, and permitting support.
We specialize in architecture and structural engineering for custom homes, residential additions, pole barns, barndominiums, and metal building foundations. Our architectural and engineering staff have a breadth of experience with custom home design and residential addition design.
Our structural engineering services go from the ground up, through foundation, wall framing, and roof framing. We can quickly produce stamped structural drawing sets and assist our clients through the building permit process.
At JLA design we assist clients with pole barn engineering and design. If you are considering a pole barn project, JLA Design can help! We can create building plans for your new pole building and help you to get the plans approved by the building department. JLA produces engineer stamped pole barn plans for building permitting. We create complete plan sets with foundation plans, framing plans, sections and details that are sufficient to estimate (bid) the project, obtain a building permit, and construct the building.
Whether you are using your pole building as an agricultural building, workshop, garage, or even a barndominium, we can help. We have designed many pole barns in Colorado and we pride ourselves in fast, cost effective designs that have stood the test of time. Whether you are building from scratch, or have obtained a pole barn kit, you may be required to have your building designed by a licensed structural engineer, depending on the size and configuration. If you’re unsure, you can reach out to us for a no-cost consultation and we can help you get on the right track.
We also serve clients needing structural engineering for metal building foundations. Our metal building foundation team is fast, reliable, and produces economical designs. We can quickly produce stamped structural drawing sets and assist our clients through the building permit process. We have many years of experience designing steel building foundations for the unique soil conditions, snow and wind conditions, and regulatory conditions in the state of Colorado. We have experience with pier foundations, moment resisting foundations, tie rod and grade beam systems, concrete slab with haunch foundations, and hairpin systems, among others. We have designed buildings in the mountains of Colorado with significant snow loads, as well as those on the plains with high wind loads.
If you've recently purchased a pre-engineered metal building, your local building department will require a foundation design completed by a professional engineer licensed in the state of Colorado. Our professional engineering team has helped many building owners complete their projects on time and on budget. If you need a foundation engineer for your next project, we would love the opportunity to serve you and help make your project a success.
