C&A’s structural, mechanical and electrical engineers and building system specialists  work with architects, building owners and contractors on new construction, renovation, repairs or additions. The type of projects that they work on range from high end homes,  museums and performing arts centers to highway garages, salt sheds and firehouses.  With the adoption of the NYS International Building Code, the requirements necessary for the structural design of a building have increase substantially. C&A has met this challenge by keeping its staff well trained and up-to-date on all current building code and material specification standards.  Please see the Mechanical/Electrical page for more information specific to C&A’s mechanical and electrical services.
