Our structural engineering [link to structural service description page] and building envelope [link to BES description page] experience includes landmark towers and corporate headquarters in Canada, the United States and internationally.
Structural engineering: In commercial buildings, we have an appreciation for the need to maximize the usable floor area, which we achieve through various measures, from minimizing the core to reducing column size. Sustainability is also key. We have experience in buildings that have attained LEED Platinum certification, particularly beneficial for commercial buildings in the reduction of energy required for temperature control and lighting.
Our designs contribute to the audience’s enjoyment while addressing the unique structural challenges of cultural venues.
As iconic buildings in the community, cultural and performing arts centres are designed to inspire awe inside and out. Each venue is an original creation and we bring our innovative design and structural solutions to support the architect’s unique vision.
Our experience includes structural engineering, building envelope services and restoration in a wide range of award-winning buildings, from theatres, opera houses and ballet schools, to concert halls, art galleries, libraries and an aquarium.
As demand for effective and modern healthcare continues to increase, healthcare facilities must meet the sophisticated needs of today and the evolving needs of tomorrow.
At Entuitive, we work closely with design disciplines, including architecture, structural, electrical and mechanical to effectively engineering sustainable, high-performing healthcare facilities such as hospitals, health clinics and long-term care facilities. Our work also expands to smaller-scale, yet still-challenging projects such as the installation of diagnostic imaging equipment and mechanical equipment upgrades in operating facilities.
A dramatically cantilevering glass façade, a single span all-glass bridge, a site subject to differential settlement requiring a raft foundation – features in every project call for a combination of engineering acumen and applied ingenuity.
In the hospitality sector, it’s typical for buildings, such as hotels, ballrooms, convention and conference centres to take on a life of their own, as architects and designers give each project a distinct personality. With this uniqueness, we often face the challenge of creating innovative engineering solutions to bring concepts to reality.
We are proud to work on buildings that serve community – schools and universities, libraries, community centres, government offices, police stations, fire halls and courthouses.
Educate. Inspire. Protect. On government-funded projects, buildings fulfill a noble purpose while meeting the objectives of functionality and economy. These multiple objectives guide our work on institutional projects – we develop creative structural and building performance solutions that realize the architect’s vision in ways that are highly constructible and cost-efficient.
In today’s digitally connected world, the vast and constantly increasing amount of data generated has made the gathering, processing and safeguarding of data absolutely critical. Businesses and governments require reliable, secure and efficient data storage solutions. As a result, the design and delivery of mission critical data centres has become as sophisticated and innovative as the technologies they house.
Entuitive brings an all-encompassing view and approach, understanding how to maintain consistent facility operations from the inside out. We start with a collaborative programming effort, working with you to tightly define and refine your project requirements. The result is a roadmap to success – aligning the scope and budget while maximizing constructability.
With every solution, we keep in mind that the project’s success will be measured by the satisfaction of the residents.
We have a solid understanding of architects’ and developers’ specific needs when planning a residential project, from student housing to a soaring condo tower.
At Entuitive, our portfolio includes all types of retail projects, from expansions and new construction to renovations and revitalizations.
Our projects cover the full range of retail properties, including malls and shopping centres, retail/commercial towers, and individual stores. We work with owners, architects, developers and contractors to deliver successful retail solutions for all types of brands from household staples to high-end luxury. We understand what each retailer is looking for and work to ensure that the building and its performance is engineered to match the brand experience.
At Entuitive, we understand the business of sport – recreation centres, arenas and stadiums are designed for function and flexibility.
We have international experience working on award-winning buildings for sports and recreation, from the friendly confines of community centres to landmark sports venues such as Toronto’s Air Canada Centre and Glasgow’s Velodrome.
Each transportation project presents its own set of challenges – to control costs, shorten the construction timeframe, or develop innovative, high-performing and buildable solutions for a challenging infrastructure project.
Our Principals and staff have extensive experience consulting on the structural design and building envelope of complex transportation facilities, as well as the restoration of existing urban transit structures, across Canada and internationally. From train stations and pedestrian tunnels to subway platforms and airports, this experience allows us to respond quickly, delivering thoughtfully designed, cost-effective and timely solutions to our clients.
