No city in North America is more easily recognizable for its breathtaking skyline than New York City. The largest metropolitan area in the country and the birthplace of the American skyscraper is also the home of KCE Consulting Engineering, PLLC.
Our consulting firm specializes in the field of structural engineering, and we proudly service business of all types across New York City and Jersey City with everything from design and build needs for new high-rise developments to restoration consulting in some of the community’s greatest historical neighborhoods. We have countless success stories in our portfolio, and a list of completed projects that showcase the unique design concepts and forethought of our team of professional and innovative structural engineers.
In a city as large as New York, with the considerable space constraints the metropolitan area faces, there’s no underestimating the value of a structural engineering consultancy for your business. Even if your planned construction is outside the immediate metro area, structural engineers have a vital role to play in the development of your property.
At KCE Consulting Engineering, we understand the importance of our role in the development of New York City’s modern skyline, as well as the restoration of its historic buildings. As structural engineers, it is our duty to develop building layouts with accurately calculated abilities to resist New York’s punishing seasonal weather conditions and the daily operational demands of the structure’s tenants.
We also excel at finding practical ways to fit the structural system to planned architecture. Whether it’s steel and concrete or masonry and wood, KCE structural engineers are up to the task of designing beautiful, state-of-the-art structures that will last a lifetime. We are proud to service the greater New York City community, including all boroughs and neighborhoods into Jersey City.
