Your Austin-Based Structural Design Firm

We’ve been designing structures in the Austin area since 1990. We have a stellar team that is dedicated to excellence in all we do.

Our Story

Jerry Garcia founded Structures in 1990 specializing in residential projects. He began with small projects and as his reputation for good engineering grew, so did the complexity, scope and company staff. One of our most complex residential projects was a $35 million dollar residence that implemented a wide range of structural approaches to satisfy the architectural intent and construction schedule. This variety of structural solutions included structural steel, suspended cast in place concrete, pan joist concrete systems, load bearing structural CMU as well as light gage metal assemblies.

Our Expertise

We offer full design services including feasibility assessment, schematic design, design development, construction documents and construction administration for new structures.

Proactive Coordination

Our reputation for strong project coordination allows us to provide fully integrated structural designs that are efficient, economical and constructible.

Prioritized Constructibility

Our vast knowledge of building systems means our designs are efficient, economical and constructible.

CLient Service

Throughout the design process, we are mindful of the architectural intent, the needs of other consultants, the contractor’s assembly and the owner’s goals.

Elevating Communities Through Innovative Structural Designs

We are dedicated to creating structural designs that elevate and improve communities across an array of market sectors. Our designs are tailored to meet the needs of each individual project and to allow structural elements to become integral parts of a building’s character.
