About

Our mission

Structural Engineers strive to create great bones for great building projects, integrating performance, durability, and resilience to add lasting value for all stakeholders.

Our mission is to be a robust structural engineering design exchange in which our professional practices are elevated by interaction and professional feedback, and enriched by collaboration and shared experience.

Beyond that, we join the growing number of design professionals globally who dedicate one percent of design revenues to partnering with environmental and community organizations to empower a greater mission: To work in a coordinated way for the health of our planet’s ecosystem and for the shared futures of its diverse human communities.

Our vision

To support environmental, social, and economic sustainability as the key drivers for building practices.  

To commit to continual questioning and learning in order to broaden and refine our group’s base of knowledge.

To nurture business models in which the overriding primary goal is that of creating opportunity and reward for all team members.

To be a helpful and active member of the greater design community and to place our focus upon service to our industry, to our fellow regional (and beyond) designers, and to our communities.

Profile

GABBART AND WOODS STUDIO is a structural engineering exchange and workplace of broad experience and diverse ideas.  The studio was founded in 1995 and since that time our members’ production companies have been providing structural engineering consulting services to Northern Nevada, Truckee and the Tahoe Basin, Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra, the Sierra Foothills of California, the San Francisco Bay Area, Greater Los Angeles, and beyond.  Our teams work from two networked locations in Reno, NV  and Truckee, CA.  The group consists of six structural engineers, three civil engineers, and one design associate.

Our practices are noted by their broad scope as well as their collaborative spirit. Our collective experience ranges from highly detailed low-rise architecture to twenty story buildings and bridges, and it encompasses sports arenas, schools, churches, civic art installations, multi-family and mixed-use developments, hospitals, post-tensioned podium structures, commercial offices, resort lodges, large industrial complexes, and notable residences.  We draw upon the nature and applications of steel, concrete, timber, masonry, glass and aluminum, as well as cross-laminated timber and other innovative materials and composites.

Seismic analysis, design, and performance are central to our practices.  Our team members have worked in post-graduate research and have authored original publications in the fields of earthquake dynamics and state of the art seismic response, at the University of California Davis, the University of Colorado Boulder, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, the Institute for Advanced Study (IUSS) ROSE School in Pavia, Italy, and the Applied Technology Council in Redwood City.  Our team design experience for constructed projects includes non-linear time history analysis and performance- based design, and it spans a number of building types, including ductile concrete moment frames, special steel moment frames, buckling restrained braces, vertical post-tensioned concrete shearwalls, and mode shaping / tuned mass dampening systems.

Regardless of the scope and specifics, we strive to help bring architectural visions to reality with efficiency, economy, simplicity, and sensitivity.
