Project name: Thaker Jewelry

Project Location: Lubbock, TX


EAKOM provided structural engineering for this jewelry store located on 82nd Street and Iola Ave in Lubbock, TX. This 8,000 S.F structure is made of ICF walls, steel bar joist supported by continuous spread footings. One of the challenge on this project was the design of the bump-out at the front of the building where steel beams and drop columns were engineered to properly support the roof and set backs.

​​Retail projects are generally fast-paced and schedule driven, but require flexibility for significant changes along the way. Major developers understand that they need a trusted and experienced partner as their structural engineer. EAKOM Engineering's retail experience includes over 2 million SF of shopping centers in West Texas. Our know-how to engineer long-span moment resisting frames connections has successfully provided the flexibility of tenant improvements. Below is a selective list of recent projects which represent the depth of our experience.  As usual, the steel connections and metal stud design design were included in our Construction Documents in order to cut the construction time by 3 to 5 months and meet the Owners schedule.
