Exceeding Expectations

We’re perfectionists, but we don’t let that stop us from having fun and finishing the job in timely fashion.

Fueled by the vision, creativity and acuity of our individual team members, Fire Tower offers a full range of engineering services directed at generating heavy timber structures that meet – and exceed – the expectations of our clients and requirements of building officials and engineers.

What we do

New Buildings

From wild designs to classic forms, we’ve successfully engineered the spectrum of possibilities in the realm of new heavy timber structures.

  • Timber framed homes, churches, offices and institutional buildings
  • Dramatic structures
  • Panel homes/manufactured homes
  • Bridges
  • Advising proprietary connector fabricators
  • New and re-newed enclosure systems: rammed earth, cob, straw bale, etc.

Existing Structures

Fire Tower has quickly made a name for refurbishing and revitalizing those great (and not-so-great) existing timber structures: 

  • Covered bridges
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Mill Buildings
  • Barns
