When designing a building, a structural engineer is concerned with two important factors: strength and stability. If an engineer misses either of the two things, a design might end up being a fiasco. Consider strength and stability as two sides of a same coin. When you use an umbrella during a windy situation, what happens to it? It losses its stability and turns inside out, but it does not break. This is a fine example of strength vs stability.
During this time, DCI Engineers is shifting face-to-face priorities to virtual platforms via online meetings, email and phone, taking advantage of telecommuting opportunities for staff where appropriate. In many of our regions, our DCI offices are temporarily closed, however we are working from our homes and available by email or phone. Should you need contact information for one of our offices, please find our office numbers listed under our Locations page.
We understand this time creates challenges for individuals and communities, but we know that by working together, we can make it through and come out stronger.
