raSmith’s structural engineers provide design solutions to the private and public sectors for new, rehabilitated and retrofitted bridge and building structures. Our reputation for providing creativity beyond engineering is evidenced in our project designs and our ability to solve even the most complex challenges in a simplified and cost-effective manner. Several of our senior staff hold 35+ years of experience and we have offices based in greater Milwaukee and Madison.
Our staff’s broad spectrum of experience enables us to set and maintain projects on the correct course. While we certainly draw from our experience, we treat each project individually and don’t rely on past project solutions. Well known for our work in Wisconsin, our staff is licensed throughout the U.S. and has completed hundreds of projects nationwide.
raSmith significantly expanded our position in the building and structural engineering market in August 2018 with the acquisition of Matsen Ford Design Associates. Since 1987, Matsen Ford has worked on projects nationwide in conventional structural system design, cold-formed steel framing design and finish systems design.

“raSmith is always very timely when questions come up and need to be answered, especially when we get into the construction world where time is everything.”
