    Acumen Industries

    Let us create the solution for your next project.

    Our team principles are those of trust, open exchange, personal responsibility, and encouraging success for all areas of work and life. We believe that establishing meaningful relationships lead to better performance and a bit of providence when faced with challenges.

    Acumen Industries was formed in 2002 to harness the evolving skill and knowledge gained in the workplace. Bring it to bear upon new and complex challenges faced in the worlds of design and technology. The intent was to take "process fragments" to the next level of understanding and deploy them into the workplace as complete actions. Our use of computers and software, to assist in the decision-making process, often lead to an incomplete understanding of the actions and decisions necessary to provide sound decisions. We therefore sought to provide more visibility and control to the decision-making process and documentation of the work-flow process.

    We are integrating the full gambit of experience from many experts in the construction, architecture, engineering and design industries. We have a research staff of professionals looking in to the possible futures of industry and design. In addition to our ongoing design, analysis, and modeling efforts, we are striving to publish information that will help companies move forward with their plans. We study work flows, desktop interface protocols, industry semantics, hierarchy structures, and software integration. Our individual professions provide us the opportunity to work in a rich environment that expands our own understanding of the impact of our decisions. We seek to fulfill our lives and those of our clients.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    When do I need a specialty engineer for my project?

    Structures that utilize materials such as aluminum, glass, fabric, and composites as primary structural elements are often unfamiliar to typical structural engineers, they require a specialty engineer familiar with their performance limitations and design criteria. These materials, as structural elements, are often not discussed in building codes and rely on persons in the industry to provide guidance and design solutions to a project.


    When is the best time to involve a specialty engineer? Isn't my project structural engineer sufficient?

    Complex, performance-based structures that support themselves from a primary building structure are often given insufficient design time or consideration by the building structural engineer. They are often designed very conservatively with the assumption that a final design will be done later by a consultant or contractor.

    Getting someone involved early will allow the project structural engineer to include the required elements for performance-based systems in to the main structure. Some cable systems and vault structures can introduce significant forces in to the supporting systems.


    What is the impact of using a specialty engineer later, rather than sooner?

    The impact can be minimal or very drastic depending upon the system deployed. Often local reinforcing is all that is required. However, some systems will require a redesign by the structural engineer or more often a compromise to the architectural design intent.


    What are the costs involved in hiring a specialty engineer?

    A specialty engineer can end up saving you money when a project is completed. Their task is to provide an optimized design using appropriate design tools and methods. They will often save material weight and have a positive impact on the amount of time necessary for coordination and installation. The cost per area for having an specialty engineer are minimal when compared to the material and installation costs per area.
