Increase your sellable square footage by up to 50%
Moses Structural Engineers is an award winning firm specializing in cutting edge wood design.

Wood construction is one of the most economical ways to build in Canada, and it accounts for 90% of the residential construction market. Since January 1, 2015, mid-rise wood buildings in Ontario have been allowed to go up from 4 to 6 storeys. While increasing the return on investment, this creates more desirable medium-density neighbourhoods. We work with architects and developers to make their visions come to life.

Beyond 6-Storeys: Hybrid wood structural systems when you need them.

LOOKING OUT FOR OUR CLIENTS

The Home Ownership Today (HOT) Condominiums prototype was designed by Quadrangle Architects Ltd. for Great Gulf in anticipation of the Ontario Building Code changes to allow 6-storey wood construction. Moses Structural Engineers developed a structural system based on a 6-storey model for future use. As wood buildings go beyond 4 and 6 storeys, other hybrid wood structural systems make more sense. Our award winning portfolio which incorporates the use of heavy timber, glulam, CLT and wood-concrete composites gives us the tools to make these tall wood buildings a reality.

”David Moses and his team are a pleasure to work with. They find innovative solutions that inspire confidence in doing more with wood. Quality, integrity and sustainability is the top priority when you work with David and he communicates this beautifully through drawings and graphics that are among the best you will ever see from a structural engineer.”
