Our reputation is based on providing excellent service and the production of thorough, well-coordinated construction documents. REVIT Building Information Modeling (BIM) is widely used to facilitate coordination with the design and construction team. JVA’s Revit User Group (RUG) regularly meets to provide ongoing training for our staff. Additionally, a rigorous program of in-house and outside technical training provides our staff with multiple opportunities for professional development.
JVA has experience with all project delivery methods, and we have completed numerous projects using Design-Build construction. With professional registrations across the country, our structural teams develop expertise in the design of buildings for heavy snow loads, high wind and flood forces, and we have extensive experience in areas of high seismicity.
