Early signs of deterioration are not always obvious to the untrained eye. As such, detailed visual, hands-on, and sometimes probe inspections by expert structural engineers are imperative.

Our robust Albany engineering structural inspection and investigation services can identify deterioration to determine the structural well-being of a building and its individual components. Additionally, we perform root cause analysis and help provide short and long-term remediation, rehabilitation, and repair support.


McLaren’s mixed use engineering services are helping to redefine urban planning and build communities in Albany and nationwide. Moreover, we specialize in bringing residential, commercial, cultural, and entertainment uses into one space.

Additionally, our experience and expertise encompass all aspects of the building life cycle with structural design, inspection and construction phase services.


Conversion and repurposing of existing buildings can help meet everchanging market demands with a more sustainable and cost effective option.
