  • About

    Tipping Mar takes an expanded view of structural engineering, applying the highest levels of technical and practical skill and an appreciation of good design to bring the greatest value in seismic and sustainable design to our clients' projects.

    Since 1983, we have sought to practice at the forefront of our profession, introducing innovative approaches, advanced tools, and new research to create award-winning engineering solutions that enhance building performance, facilitate construction, and provide lasting value. Over the last decade, we've used these same capabilities to realize innovations in sustainable structural engineering.

    Our approach emphasizes early collaboration with architects and contractors and draws upon the technical expertise of our staff and our trademark ingenuity. By working together from the outset, value engineering becomes built into the design process.

    From a simple straw-bale house in China to a complex performance-based seismic design, our advanced understanding of structural behavior results in construction savings, expedited schedules, improved performance and pure aesthetic appeal.
