Fiber-Reinforced Polymer

Glass fiber-reinforced polymers (GFRP) and carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRP) are used in structural engineering for their notable strength and elasticity. The FRP method has been used by experts, Cornerstone Engineering among them, in the repair and rehabilitation of buildings and structural elements across every industry.

Trusted throughout the region as a source of expertise in the assessment and repair of existing structures, Cornerstone has long specialized in the use of fiber-reinforced polymers as effective, lightweight strengthening agents in damaged or compromised structures. Our expertise in this area is second to none, and several of our projects contain photos of the finished FRP strengthening process:

Structural Engineering Analysis and Design

Structural engineering is the core activity of our consulting services. Utilizing state-of-the art computer resources, our staff is both experienced and equipped to provide the structural analysis and design necessary to move your project from conception to construction. We are involved in all stages of project development, including:

  • Scoping
  • Design Development
  • Budgetary Cost Estimating
  • Construction Document Preparing

Assessment of Existing Structures

Existing structures can require assessment for a variety of reasons: determination of maintenance and/or repair needs, signs of deterioration or overstress, and damage due to natural disasters. Our non-destructive visual assessments include documentation of existing conditions, determination of the causes of overstress or deterioration, and recommendations for repair or strengthening.

Structural Strengthening, Repair, and Restoration

The design of any strengthening or restoration requires skill and creativity. Our focus in these projects is to produce practical and long-lasting solutions. Giving consideration to project needs, site conditions, and cost effectiveness, we utilize state-of-the art technologies including carbon fiber reinforcement (CFRP) and glass fiber reinforcement (GFRP) as well as conventional methods of strengthening such as steel, concrete, masonry, and timber.

Structural Special Inspections

Code changes in recent years require additional inspections during the construction of many structures. The combination of our structural engineering experience and our inspection background has prepared us to serve our clients as the structural inspector of record (SIR) for these structures. Our inspections include field verification of construction activities in keeping with design documents, documentation of deviations in site and construction conditions, coordination with the structural engineer of record (SER), and periodic progress reports.

Project & Construction Management Services

Construction is the last step in moving a project from concept to reality. Our project management during construction includes active resolution of challenges which arise during construction and keeping our clients informed and involved throughout construction.
