  • Specialty Design Systems
  • Wexler Associates are experts at design systems that are often favored by developers of mixed use projects, such as:
  • Precast plank floors on steel, masonry or stud wall bearing
  • Long span metal deck floors
  • Thin steel floor systems
  • Staggered trusses with plank floors, composite metal deck or modified truss systems.
  • Beam-in-wall systems
  • Cast-in-place concrete and post-tensioned concrete
  • The above systems, when used correctly, result in reduced material weight and slab depth and are often favorable due to reduced overall costs.
  • Value Engineering
  • Projects at Wexler Associates are designed with great attention to the cost of construction. In most cases, projects are value engineered before they are issued for bid. Our firm is hired to redesign several projects (previously designed by other engineering teams) with the objective of reducing the cost of construction. Interestingly, in all cases our redesign resulted in significant savings and materials.
  • Some of the cost effective projects we have worked are listed below:
  • The Bowery (52 East 4th Street, New York, NY)
  • Beacon Park Towers in Brooklyn, NY
