Commercial engineering is an area of engineering that encompasses a wide range of projects and requires a diverse skill set. The term “commercial” is derived from commerce; accordingly, commercial engineering deals with any project that seeks monetary gain as a result. This incorporates almost every engineering project except those done for the local or national government including both retail and industrial structures.
At Brannon Corp., commercial engineering has been a part of our businesses and experience since we started over 35 years ago. Examples of this work can be seen in our industrial, retail, and mixed use engineering projects, including the following:
Each of these projects was affected by the unique specializations of our Development Team at Brannon Corp. to create an end product that would not only satisfy the aesthetic desires of our clients, but also result in a profitable project once completion was reached. While these projects are each very different, they are all examples of the broad pursuit that is commercial engineering.
Just as the each project is unique and has its own set of challenges and opportunities, the skills required to complete commercial engineering projects are very broad. As a commercial engineering firm, The Brannon Corp. is prepared to perform the following services as well as any others that are needed as part of these projects:
Residential engineering in Texas requires a broad skill set, even beyond the skills and abilities needed to work in this field in other parts of the United States. In this part of the country, there are both delicate environmental areas and historical zones where residential projects are either heavily restricted or even banned.
The Brannon Corp. has been working in North & East Texas for over three & a half decades, giving us the skills and experience base necessary to design and execute residential engineering projects in this part of the country.
Some of the engineering services our firm provides for residential projects include the following:
Brannon Corp. provides retail engineering services for projects located throughout North & East Texas. You can browse selected previous retail engineering projects or contact us today about your project for a consultation.
In Texas, residents can see the products of retail engineering every day as they go to and from work or run errands around the neighborhood. Retail engineering is a very specific part of the broader commercial engineering discipline, but like all practical applications of this science, retail engineers draw on the knowledge and skills of other engineering disciplines in the course of their work.
Projects that fall under this discipline can be as small as a single store or as large as a shopping center. Retail engineers may also design entire chains of stores to ensure architectural consistency across the brand. Companies try to create and maintain this consistency so that customers recognize the stores wherever they are located and have the same, positive, shopping experience at each of them.
Retail engineering involves many services from the beginning of a project through its completion, as maintenance is an ongoing concern for commercial properties.
Mixed-use development is becoming popular in many urban areas throughout the United States. These developments are a marked departure from the single-zone design plan that characterized most development since the 1950’s and reflect the changing priorities of urban residents. Engineers with experience in mixed-use development will be in demand over the coming years as these communities continue to grow in popularity.
Engineering firms can’t seem to agree on a single definition of “mixed use development” because it can take on different forms depending on the location. In general, these communities or developments use the same buildings and/or facilities for more than one purpose. This means that instead of being an apartment building,the building may also feature commercial businesses and be located with walkways to a public park. These developments feature some combination of commercial, office, industrial, institutional, residential, and/or other uses all in the same development.
There are several reasons why this type of development is becoming more popular. Some of the most widely acknowledged ones include:
Although mixed-use developments are an innovative change, there are many challenges to this type of project. They require the cooperation of many parties, including government officials, developers, architects, and lenders, who may or may not have the same interests in mind.
For example, without the proper infrastructure, people in these developments may still need to have cars. If government officials aren’t willing to dedicate the public transportation funds to support these projects, the projects may fail because they are unable to meet one of their primary objectives.
