Structural

Structural

Fleming & Associates, P.A. has provided structural engineering services in North and South Carolina for 25 years.  In 2012, we completed our first building project at Ft. Stewart, Georgia. 

In the early years we focused primarily on providing structural consulting services to architects for school buildings.  Our services quickly broadened to include higher education, military, medical, industrial, commercial, municipal, recreational, water treatment/waste water, residential and special structural projects.  We are often called upon to be the prime consultant to industrial clients and contractors.  In recent years we have seen a growth in consulting directly to industry, municipalities, building owners and contractors as the prime consultant.

Although many of our projects are large, we take pride in providing quality structural engineering and consulting services on a wide variety of smaller projects that might range from a cracked house foundation to a spillway design. Our goal continues to be to offer quality structural engineering services at competitive rates for the purpose of providing safe, economical, durable and attractive structures.

Roofing Design

Roofing Design

Two Registered Roof Consultants manage our firm's roofing division, which has specialized in roof assessments and replacement design for more than 15 years. We have designed single ply, built-up, and modified bitumen roof membrane systems depending on the particular job requirements. We have served as the prime consultant on county and state construction projects. As the prime consultant, we complete drawings and specifications, advertise and conduct bid openings, and perform construction administration and site observation for our roofing projects. As a structural engineering and roof design company our understanding of both the roof structure and roof assembly of the building enables us to provide better consultation to architects, building owners, and contractors.

Special Inspections

Special Inspections

The requirements for Special Inspections in both the North Carolina & International Building Codes have increased over the past decade. Our firm has met the demand for Special Inspections by keeping abreast of the current code requirements. We have been the Special Inspector on many facilities including military structures, multi-story buildings, and Occupancy Category IV (critical) buildings. As the Special Inspector, we help ensure that the building structure and life-safety components are constructed to meet the project's design specifications. In addition to Special Inspection services, Fleming & Associates has always maintained a high standard of construction administration services for projects that we have designed. 

Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP)

Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP)

Our firm's proximity to Ft. Bragg and Pope Army Airfield has enabled us to both design and inspect military structures for almost three decades. Since 2001, there has been a significantly increased awareness by the Department of Defense to ensure that buildings are designed to withstand the forces created by blast effects. We have met the growing need by working with the US Army Corps of Engineers to provide design services for new buildings and retrofitting existing buildings to meet the required Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection design requirements. 

Forensics

Forensics

We have extensive experience in providing on-site forensic engineering and retrofit solutions for structures that have been damaged or are under-performing. We have been involved in failure investigations and designed repairs for structures that have been damaged by tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, fire, explosions, termites, and impact. Our company was included on the task force for Cumberland County Schools to evaluate and repair school buildings damaged by the 2011 tornados. We have widely varied experience in condition assessments and repair of existing/aging structures and have recently performed extensive evaluations of railroad trestles and water treatment facilities. In addition, our engineers have performed evaluations and served as expert witnesses during legal proceedings.
