Group M is quite experienced in the design of multi-family residential and mixed-use projects. Group M clients represent all arenas of the building industry from the largest homebuilders in the world to the most speculative builders in the nation. Group M is one of the few premier structural engineering firms with significant experience in all aspects of structural design of multi-family and mixed-use projects. Our firm has designed well over 3,000 structures to date.
Group M has pioneered many design approaches for podium type projects that have enabled us to provide our clients a Big Picture approach to the overall structure thus allowing a more holistic approach to the project thereby allowing the client to achieve a more efficient structure from a structural and cost perspective. To many we are considered podium experts. For example, Group M was the first firm to utilize the use of flat slab design in the City of Los Angeles. Group M also was the first firm to introduce the use of rod based seismic holdown systems for use in wood structures in the Southern California. Our team of experienced collaborative forward thinkers has allowed us to excel at innovating better ways of delivering a big picture design.
