raSmith is a civil engineering and surveying firm with a local and national presence. Its services are focused on public and private sector clients with needs in design and construction, including land development, site planning and design, structural engineering, municipal engineering, transportation and traffic, surveying, construction services and geographic information systems (GIS).
Three projects completed by raSmith’s structural engineers were awarded Design Excellence Awards from the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) during the professional association’s recent expo held in Chicago. Projects in Chicago and Nashville, Tennessee, won top honors for outstanding cold-formed steel engineering designs. Project challenges included dramatically sloping end walls on a hotel, four new stories added to a hotel that required historic façade preservation, and a glass-walled retail store supported by an underground steel support system.
