Passionate. Creative. Collaborative.

At Anthem, we are passionate about the built environment! We take great pride in providing the design and construction community with innovative and creative structural solutions to meet even the most complex design ideas. At Anthem, we listen to your needs and build our approach and delivery around your goals and vision. That’s why our team uses the latest BIM software and structural analysis technologies to effectively communicate and collaborate as a truly integrated team – owner, architect, engineer, and contractor – all working together to produce the highest quality work for the success of each project.

We Think Differently.

We are willing to question assumptions and suggest alternatives where we believe a project will be positively affected. We pride ourselves on providing practical, buildable solutions, and we are not reluctant to modify those when a contractor recommends specific improvements. Anthem views good structural design as being a team effort! We feel that these benefits deserve significant consideration when selecting a structural consultant.

Smart Design.

We provide owners, architects, and contractors with quality customer service, pursuing the best solutions for the success of each project. We will be an effective member of your design team that will bring leadership and significant value to the table during the design and construction phases of your project.


Work + Life Balance is Key.

Who you work with matters. You want experts that care about results and the relationships cultivated along the way. At Anthem, we believe that happy and motivated people do the best work! We have created a fun culture that promotes teamwork, communication, and most of all, work + life balance. We work hard and we play hard!
