Full-Service Structural Designs

Albertson Engineering provides complete structural design services for structures of all types and sizes. We know our region. We know the design challenges of our area, and we know the contractors. The wind loads, snow loads, and varied soils are real challenges in our area, and we have the expertise to design structures that will stand up to our environment.

Through our involvement in professional organizations and the continual education of our staff, we provide innovative, efficient designs with superior attention to detail.

Award-Winning Structural Designs and Engineers

Albertson Engineering has received multiple awards for its designs and staff. The South Dakota Engineering Society has recognized Albertson Engineering multiple times for being part of the design team of their project of the year, including recently giving this honor to the Arc of Dreams, a monumental stainless-steel arc-shaped sculpture spanning the Big Sioux River in Sioux Falls. We also boast staff that have been recognized as Engineer of the Year at the local and state level. Recently, the South Dakota Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) recognized Dignity of Earth and Sky, a 50-ft sculpture of a Native American woman overlooking the Missouri River in Chamberlin, SD, with the prestigious Champion of Architects Award. We are the only structural engineering firm to be presented with this award in the history of the SD AIA.
