Abacus Institute

On our minds.

Architecture is always evolving, and we’d like to share some of our latest thinking with you.


CIVIL ENGINEERING. The majority of architectural projects require civil engineering services to resolve site questions. Abacus Architects is one of a few architectural firms to offer in-house civil engineering as part of a total approach to planning and design. Unlike firms without this benefit, Abacus is able to initiate a detailed site investigation early in the process to ensure your project avoids costly revelations after your budget has been established. In-depth site investigation by our civil engineering department thoroughly examines how your site relates to adjacent public utilities, possible environmental concerns, adjacent properties, and potential storm-water issues. The ensuing design takes these factors into account and provides upfront solutions to help you minimize uncertainties and better manage total construction costs.
