We maintained the existing floor framing and footprint of the existing back porch and built new screen walls and a roof over this area. New concrete footings were required to withstand the added roof load. Team provided realistic 3D… Read More »
Welcome to the Team Engineering Blog
We want you to be part of our Team! Follow us as we post new blogs about our upcoming projects, construction tips and advice, engineering concepts, and company events.
Our blogs are intended to get you further educated on building construction straight from our Professional Engineers, Architects, Inspectors, and Project Managers at Team. Ever wonder how an ice dam occurs? What exactly is an LVL and why is it so strong? When do I need a structural ridge?
We’ll take some of the most common questions and industry misconceptions we hear and give you our expert opinions. The information we will provide is intended for general informational purposes only, but if you have a project specific question, contact us and speak to one of our licensed Professional Engineers today!

Having a house with central air conditioning, we have no need for an indoor ceiling fan, yet my son keeps asking when we can install one for him to play with. In… Read More »
Closed-cell 2-lb/ft3 (32 kg/m3)… “high density” spray polyurethane foam has tremendous adhesive and strength properties as well as high thermal resistance and airtightness. This type of spray foam is often installed on the underside of roof sheathing and if the bond between the closed cell spray foam and the underside of the roof sheathing fails,… Read More »
With the summer temperatures seeming to get higher every year, these homeowners wanted a new pool to cool off with their kids and family. An in-ground pool proved to be logistically challenging based on the client’s goals. Rather, a new three-tiered deck surrounding an above-ground pool was concocted. The new 20ft x 12ft pool was… Read More »

Since then, we’ve done a variety of projects for them and it’s been a great pleasure to work with them. One of our recent projects has been to help them establish a design for an efficient HVAC system… Read More »
At Team Engineering, we typically specify engineered lumber products manufactured by Weyerhaeuser. When considering beams spanning long distances and where built-up dimensional lumber isn’t practical, we immediately turn to LVL beams. Microllam® LVLs and TimberStrand® LSLs are appropriate for dry-use applications where the beam is not going to be directly exposed to precipitation. These beams… Read More »
Team’s MEP engineers regularly attend ASHRAE New Hampshire events, hosted by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers. The professional group focuses on advancing the art and science of HVACR design to sustainability serve society. New Hampshire’s ASHRAE chapter organizes regular educational events with guest speakers from the industry, fostering learning and innovation… Read More »
Several members of our design team had the pleasure of attending AIA NH’s 2023 Excellence in Architecture Design Awards Ceremony in September. It was a wonderful event held at the Alnoba property and was an amazing showing of the spectacular skill and talent that New Hampshire’s Architects have to offer. A number of exceptional projects… Read More »
This magnificent home is the creation of JAD Design Group and built by Robert W. Gray Construction. Of course, we had the role of structural engineer. Although large, this 6,000sf home was completely wood framed over concrete foundations. Check out the finished photos by Joseph Anthony Photography below!
This is the second construction progress update for one of our lake house projects designed by Bonin Architects and built by North Branch Construction.
