Some of the most interesting features in commercial and residential landscapes are water feature designs; fountains, waterfalls, streams, and ponds provide every passerby with a sight and sound that is calming and enjoyable, as well as impressive. However, water features can be difficult to design and implement in a way that allows them to keep running through the years without leaking or moving. Some water features, due to the architectural design, require very tight tolerances on differential movement; we can meet these challenges in engineering design. The aesthetic benefits - and functional challenge - of structural fountains and other water features are why developers and homeowners should use the specialized expertise of structural engineers for the water feature design and implementation.
Water Feature Design Services from Falkofske
During the design phase, the structural engineers at Falkofske Engineering will take into account the following areas: structural integrity, aesthetics, and performance. Water feature design is a team effort, including mechanical, electrical, architectural, and structural aspects. We have worked through challenging issues with all disciplines and produced one successful project after another. We are adept at designing with the most common water feature materials, including: concrete, gunite, and masonry.
Our Water Feature Design and Structural Fountain Services include:
- Poured in place concrete water features
- Gunite shell water features
- Lake edge retaining walls
- Waterfall Structures
