AS Engineering residential projects include new construction, renovations, structural evaluations.
Structural Engineering Nassau County, Long Island, New York
AS Engineering Services provided structural engineering services for this waterfront community in Nassau County, Long Island, NY. The project consists of 6 total buildings: 3 townhomes and 3 condominiums.
The buildings were supported on helical piles with grade beams and pile caps. The first level support structure consisted of structural steel supporting wood trusses and upper two floor all of wood-framed construction.

Mixed-Use Building in Huntington
AS Engineering Services provided structural engineering services for a three-story mixed-use building in downtown Huntington, Suffolk County, Long Island, NY.
The building was constructed utilizing a steel structure to support the second floor framing and upper wood framed floors. The building was supported on a combination of a pile foundation and mat slab foundation system. Full height structural steel moment frames were utilized to resist lateral loads along the exterior of the building and a combination of wood framed shear walls and braced steel frames along the interior of the building. One corner of the building utilized long cantilevered members to create a column free corner. The building was designed primarily using Tekla Structural Designer.
Commercial Structural Engineering Facade Inspection
AS Engineering Services recently performed a facade inspection to determine the cause of spalling stone veneer. It was determined that the steel ties used to secure the stone were creating moisture penetration issues that led to the observed spalling. To remedy the potentially dangerous situation, it was recommended that the building owners install new mechanical ties and repoint.
Commercial Structural Engineering, 3D Modeling, Suffolk County, Long Island, NY
AS Engineering Services provided structural engineering design services for this new loading dock for an existing warehouse in Huntington, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. The company utilized sophisticated 3D modeling engineering design software to design the loading dock. The actual structure was built using structural steel framing for the floor, roof and wall system with masonry enclosure walls.
Structural Engineering, NY, NY Townhomes
AS Engineering Services, P.C. provided structural engineering design services for two, five-story townhomes which were being converted to additional space for the Nightingale-Bamford School in New York, NY The structural engineering services included shoring and underpinning design for existing load bearing walls of two, five-story townhomes which were being converted to additional space for the school. The shoring consisted of a variety of systems including horizontal and space trusses to provide stability of structural elements that had to remain while the new floor system was installed. The construction sequence and the amount of existing structure that had to be removed presented a number of challenges that were efficiently overcome by the AS Engineering Services team.
New Commercial Building – Yonkers, NY
AS Engineering Services, P.C. provided structural engineering design services for this new 14,000 square-foot single story building in Yonkers, NY. The walls were engineered to be constructed using reinforced concrete masonry units and the roof with long spanning steel bar joists. One of the challenges for the A.S. Engineering team was the designing of the lateral resisting system. The team accomplished this by utilizing both interior and exterior reinforced masonry shear walls. In order to transfer the shear from the roof diaphragm to the shear walls, the team specified different welding patterns for the metal roof deck for the high shear zones. Structural steel was also utilized to support the roof framing and create the breezeways.
