Severud Associates Celebrates 90 Years of Engineering Excellence

Award-Winning Structural Engineers Continue to Make Lasting Mark on Skyline and Profession


Severud Associates, founded in 1928 by Fred Severud, established itself by engineering modest projects using simple methods.  Nine decades later, its projects are more ambitious and the tools used more sophisticated.  But regardless of a project’s complexity or size, the staff’s expertise, experience, and client engagement have ensured the firm’s ongoing success.


Engineers are the primary asset at Severud Associates.  Pioneers Fred Severud, Eivind Elstad, and Max Krueger laid the foundation of the firm’s reputation for innovation and creativity while also training successive generations of talented structural designers.  The current principals maintain that commitment to education and service to the engineering profession.


And throughout its 90-year history, Severud Associates has been fortunate to work with many prominent architects, developers, corporations, government agencies, and other institutions.  Most are longstanding and repeat clients who can attest to the quality of the firm’s service.  All are appreciated for their contributions to the firm’s list of more than 16,000 successful projects.
