Who we are

Since its establishment in 1997, LK Design Bureau has designed and completed successfully over 800 projects in the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT). We develop Structural Design and Documentation and provide Special Inspection services for buildings of varied types and sizes, including commercial, residential, cultural, institutional, government, and healthcare edifices. Collaboration is key to our approach. We partner closely with proprietors, architects, contractors, and fabricators on cultivating and implementing project designs.

Our commitment

Our goal is to optimize the design and performance of each project by enhancing the materials and systems utilized. We approach each project as a unique challenge that requires innovative solutions.

Superstructures

Our projects include the following:

  • High-rise commercial and residential buildings

  • Mid-rise residential buildings

  • Custom residential houses

  • Structural supports for solar arrays, wind turbines (with vibro-acoustic isolation)

 

Our company utilizes a wide range of materials, such as structural steel; cast-in-place concrete; cold formed light gauge steel; and timber. The selection of materials depends on the client’s goals and needs; the surrounding area plan; the desired architectural appearance; and structure serviceability.

Creative Approach to Design and Project Development

The efficiency in our design is facilitated by collaboration between owners, architects, contractors, and fabricators.

The cornerstone of the successful design lays down in creative use of the BIM-driven structure solutions that are developed through the use of structural design programs such as Revit, RAM, STAAD.Pro, ETABS, and SAP2000.

The cost-effective and flexible approach to structural design is based  on close and trusted relations with contractors whose opinion is always considered in the process.

Substructures

Our superstructures incorporate spread, continuous, or mat footings, micro-piles, and helical piles.

We successfully develop Support of Excavation (SOE) documentation for areas of different complexity, such as tight rear yards without access for heavy equipment.
