The mark of a capable and distinguished Engineering Firm is its ability to provide designs for challenging projects. In the case of Structural Engineering, challenging design work means tall and / or complicated structures.

Developers and Owners turn to us when they need a competent Structural Engineer with a proven history of successful large structural projects. Our major clients are repeat customers for whom we have worked for over 23 years and counting.

We have provided the Structural Design and Inspection for many of the largest and most complicated structures that have been built in Brevard County.

After working as a Structural Engineer for various government and private employers since 1989, our President Sean Burlingham founded Burlingham & Associates in 1999.

Our Firm enjoyed an immediate response from many prominent commercial developers such as Towne Realty, and from the Brevard County School Board.

We are very grateful to our Clients, who keep giving us the opportunity to demonstrate our ability to provide first class Structural Design and Inspection Services for a broad variety of project types. To our esteemed clients: Thank You !!! Without you, we are nothing.

Hurricane Report Card

I have lost count of how many multistory building projects for which we provided the Structural Design and the Inspection of the structural construction.

I did a quick tally of those in Brevard County that we have done - that I can remember at the time of this writing - which were also constructed when the unusually active 2004 hurricane season bore down on us: Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Jeanne, and also the 2005 Hurricane Wilma.

Number of Multistory Buildings in Brevard County that we designed, and that felt the winds of the 2004 and 2005 hurricanes:

  • 35 Two-Story Buildings
  • 9 Three-Story Buildings
  • 2 Four-Story Buildings
  • 39 Five-Story Buildings
  • 3 Seven-Story Buildings
  • 3 Eight-Story Buildings
  • 2 Nine-Story Buildings
  • 4 Ten-Story Buildings
  • 3 Twelve-Story Buildings
  • 1 Thirteen-Story Building

Not one of these buildings experienced any structural damages of any kind.

In Florida, the biggest technical design problem for a Structural Engineer is to make an economical structure that is resistant to powerful wind forces. This is our specialty.

Experience with these Types of Structures:

  • Steel Reinforced Concrete
  • Post-Tensioned Concrete
  • Pre-stressed Concrete
  • Shallow and Deep Foundation
  • Driven and cast-in place piles
  • Retaining walls - some very tall (35') walls
  • Structural Masonry
  • Precast Tilt-Wall Construction
  • Structural Steel Framing
  • Lightgage Steel
  • Aluminum Structures
  • Timber Structures and Glulam Timber
  • Marine Structures, seawalls, docks, piers
  • Structural Composites
  • Fiberglass rod reinforced concrete
  • Cable-stayed structures
  • Minor bridge structures
  • Prefabricated and modular buildings
