Structural engineering is the backbone of every building and on the front lines of design and construction in every project. Responsiveness is paramount from Bala's structural engineering team.  The structure is intimately aligned with the architecture and client concepts, requiring careful communication and coordination with the design team and contractors.  Bala's structural engineers focus on creative, efficient and cost effective design, fulfilling the architectural and owner design intents on every project.


Bala is proud to be one of the first 100 signatories of the SE2050 which prioritizes the education and eventual elimination of embodied carbon, via less impactful structural materials. Structural Engineering plays a paramount role in addressing the embodied carbon issues, with concrete and steel, comprising a significant portion of a building's total emissions. Our team is dedicated to transforming structural design and advancing towards a more sustainable environment.
