Facility Management Support


Facility managers are faced with a difficult challenge--operating a safe and efficient building on a limited budget. At Ryan-Biggs, we understand that your job is demanding and that you are constantly faced with complex operational and maintenance challenges. As Structural Engineers, we recognize that buildings must be functional, economical, and aesthetically pleasing to operate successfully. This is why we can help.

We have assisted facility managers like you with appropriate, innovative, and cost-effective solutions since 1973. Our facility engineering project portfolio includes K-12 schools, colleges and universities, healthcare institutions, religious and cultural institutions, municipal facilities, industrial facilities, and commercial properties.

Look to Ryan-Biggs as an extension of your facilities department. Our comprehensive approach combined with our core services makes us a one-stop shop for structural performance solutions. From slab to roof we take on projects small and large. Our goal is to optimize the structural integrity and life-span of your building within your budget.
