SidePlate Systems is an engineering partner that works to reduce construction costs on steel-framed projects. We have a 20-year history of developing new steel connection technologies and delivering safer, stronger, and smarter structures. Although originally focused on high-seismic or progressive collapse mitigation applications, our recent innovations are geared towards "everyday" wind-governed buildings. Coupled with our lateral analysis expertise, SidePlate designs reduce steel tonnage, eliminate CJP welding, and shorten construction schedules on projects in any design criteria.
Resilience is of particular interest to us at SidePlate because we are genuinely interested in promoting the design and construction of safe and efficient structures nationwide.
