Calvetti & Associates, INC strives to provide our clients with a full range of structural engineering service for commercial, educational, industrial, hotels/motels, medical, public facilities, offices, religious, recreational and multi-family residential structures. Our area of competence and successful endeavors include new construction, rehabilitation and restoration projects.

Since its establishment the firm has been retained for projects ranging in scale from residences to the design of twin ten story deluxe hotel buildings in Mazatlan, Mexico; twelve story industrial buildings in Tampico, Mexico, a thirty five story hotel/condominium in Galveston, Texas; and expansion of the Express News of San Antonio.

The principals of Calvetti & Associates, INC are diligent and conscientious individuals whose level of professionalism, technical knowledge and vast experience in the analysis and design of simple and complex structures has established a close working relationship with clients and other professionals to help ensure responsiveness to design requirements and coordination of effort. Each Calvetti & Associates, INC project is personally supervised by a principal, with periodic review by other principals, as a result, unlike many other structural engineering firms, all of the principals are knowledgeable of each project as it develops and progresses through completion. This provides our clients access to their combined experience and offers timely assistance during all production phases.

Calvetti & Associates, INC has had extensive experience in the design of lightly loaded structures such as warehouses and freezer/cooler facilities. Through this experience a combination of steel frame and concrete tilt-wall design was developed for an economical warehouse enclosure; and an economical steel frame which provides structure for insulation panels of a freezer/cooler facility. Our experience also has shown that a shallow floating type foundation is an economical method of support for these structures and provides adequate strength and stability. Our approach is to properly prepare the site and soil to provide an economical foundation rather than to ignore the soil and provide an extensive and expensive foundation.

Calvetti & Associates, INC principals stress continuing education activities to ensure that those involved in design continually are aware of the latest developments and are capable of providing the degree of expertise required. This often results in a significant degree of cost-effectiveness regardless of the projects complexity or size.
