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?
