Mission, Vision and Values
Incorporated in 1997, Michael A. Beach & Associates, LLC was founded on the purpose to provide quality Structural Engineering services with detailed design documents (not just typical details) and total project support from ground breaking to start-up. We firmly believe that every structure is unique and that even though you may have a prototype structure, no two buildings are alike. We pride ourselves in providing very detailed structural drawings on every project regardless of the size or complexity. Our goal as a company is to provide quality structural drawings that explain the project clearly to the contractor and Owner and help reduce construction RFIs and change orders. We work closely with architects to develop a set of structural documents that is coordinated between the consultants.
We are committed to keeping our firm current with the latest construction trends and design software. We have been using Revit Structure for more than five years and have positioned ourselves to be able to work with our diverse basis of clients on either a Revit or AutoCAD platform.
Founded in 1997, Michael A. Beach & Associates, LLC was established with the goal of creating a structural engineering firm that approaches each project with the intention to provide detailed construction documents that are complete and not just a set of plans with typical details. Over the years we have weathered many of the cyclical ups and downs of the industry and have been able to maintain the majority of our staff thanks in large part to our market diversity and our ability to maintain our client base. In addition, we have been able to grow our staff without large amount of advertising. We let our work speak for itself and many of our newer clients arrive at our office from referrals of other satisfied clients.
In 2009 we began to delve into the realm of Building Information Modeling (BIM) using Autodesk Revit Structure. Since then we have continued to make an investment in BIM technology and we currently have Autodesk REVIT Structure networked throughout our office. Even though we still utilize the latest versions of AutoCAD software, we continue to grow our project base with BIM diversity and have documented more than 50 projects utilizing BIM software since implementation. These projects range in scale from $2 million to $50 million. Our lead BIM designers have been using REVIT Structure for more than 7 years. We have since created a customized library of REVIT families to aide in the drawing production.
