Baird, Hampton & Brown is excited to announce the addition of structural engineering. This new service adds to our five other sectors of mechanical/plumbing, electrical, and civil engineering; land surveying; and landscape architecture.
The decision to offer structural engineering has been a strategic goal of BHB’s for several years and has become more pressing after seeing the need for a firm that offers comprehensive engineering and design services. Also referred to as total project integration, our unified multi-disciplinary team allows for enhanced single-point project coordination, built-in quality assurance, and unique perspectives to effectively design and implement projects.
“At BHB, we have strived to offer a complete service, consisting of CMEP engineering, landscape architecture, and land surveying. This allows owners and architects to receive the complete package of services they are needing from one source,” said Konstantine Bakintas, PE, President and Senior Civil Engineer at BHB. “Structural engineering is a natural place for us to grow, and this new service will allow us to have greater technical depth to fill those needs.”
Correspondingly, BHB has hired Ronald Ishmael, PE, as an Associate and structural engineer to establish and grow the structural services team. Ronald brings 13 years of diverse structural engineering experience. With a degree in civil engineering from Texas A&M University, he has spent a majority of his professional career providing structural and forensic engineering services for projects across the DFW Metroplex and beyond. Ronald has a background in concrete and steel design, and his work experience includes projects ranging from small fire stations to state-of-the-art science and technology research laboratories. He brings extensive knowledge spanning from structural analysis and design, client management, project management, structural assessments and historical preservation, to forensic failure investigations and structural evaluations/testing.
“I have big dreams to evolve this service and make BHB a well-known structural engineering firm in DFW and nationwide,” said Ronald. “It is exciting to build off a company with such a great reputation, and I look forward to helping provide a fully coordinated and complete product for our clients. BHB has a culture of providing quality work and customer service, which will be the founding principles of the structural department.”
Ronald and the structural engineering team are based out of the Fort Worth office and will provide supportive services to the CMEP teams, while pursuing structural projects. As 2020 progresses, BHB is looking forward to providing this additional service for clients.
