The West Coast's Choice for Riser Support Design
AJ Engineering is the best name in the business when it comes to riser support anywhere on the West Coast. Whether your building project is in California, Oregon, or Washington, our team of engineers can create a design that works for your needs—both economical and specific to state building code. Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems within large, multi-story buildings must contain vertical risers. These risers act to distribute the duct, conduit, and pipe from MEP systems throughout the building with branch lines to each floor. For a variety of reasons, these risers often only contain openings that are just large enough to allow them to pass through. This is what makes the design of these systems incredibly important, especially in areas where seismic events such as earthquakes could compromise the systems.
AJ Engineering offers top-quality design of these support systems for risers—including the steel that is essential to their support—to include floor drift as well as gravity and seismic loads. However, our design considerations do not stop there. Due to our design experience with pipes that allow for thermal expansion, we can also work pipe design into our overall plans as well.
