Structural Services

Lin’s Structural Group consists of two components, the first of which focuses exclusively on bridges, while the second provides design services for buildings.  Lin produces designs for construction, rehabilitation, or replacement of bridge projects ranging from railroad to vehicular to pedestrian use, in addition to providing bridge inspection and rating services.  In acknowledgement of the firm’s expertise, MassDOT has prequalified Lin Associates for Complex Bridge Design/Rating.

Lin Associates has been involved in bridge inspection/rating contracts for a wide range of railroad and rapid transit bridges throughout the Commonwealth for MassDOT and MBTA.   Lin has also performed bridge inspections as part of a Comprehensive Bridge Rehabilitation Program for the Rhode Island Department of Transportation.  

The building structural division provides services for the design and analysis of various concrete, steel, and timber building structures.  Successful projects have varied from rehabilitation, renovation, and modifications of existing structures to design of new structures such as office and commercial buildings, educational facilities, hospitals, correctional facilities, wastewater and water treatment plants, radar towers, and equipment supports.

Construction Administration

During the construction phase of a project, Lin Associates provides construction administration services to ensure construction is in conformance with project requirements and design criteria.  These services include, but are not limited to, review of shop drawings and materials, field observation, review of Value Engineering submittals, and coordination with regulatory agencies to assure compliance with applicable codes and regulations.
