What Services Do We Provide?

We provide structural engineering for projects that need buildings that can be erected quickly and are transportable.  This began in 1997 when Lt. Col. Runkle (USAFR Ret.) designed facilities at Al Dhafra Air Base in the United Emirates.  As we have moved forward, we have developed an expertise in cold formed steel and shipping containers.  Our clients come to us from a variety of backgrounds with their special needs for various structures that have to go up in a hurry in often remote areas.  We have provided engineering services for projects in the United States, Canada, Israel, Haiti, and Afghanistan.
