News about our Latest Projects

Since the last quarter-century of founding principal Rahim Zadeh’s career has focused on the cold-formed steel (CFS) industry, design of CFS structures and systems are a specialty of Raz Tech, Inc. engineers.

We understand the complexities of dealing with asymmetrical shapes, complex buckling modes, and understand how to best take advantage of post-buckling strength inherent to these types of members. We have developed and optimized shapes for wall systems, floor systems, and trusses, received patents in these areas, and developed clips, connectors, and even testing methods to optimize the use of cold-formed steel. Allow us to apply this expertise to your next project.

We offer a Variety of Services

  • Building structural design in concrete, steel, masonry, wood, and other non-traditional structural systems.
  • Specialty engineering in loadbearing light-framed construction: including wood and cold-formed steel.
  • Foundation engineering and design.
  • Non-building structural design of towers and other steel-framed systems.
  • Analysis of existing structures for additional loads, such as adaptive reuse of buildings or adding antennae to existing steel towers.
  • Special Inspections: as required by current building codes.
  • Pre-demolition structural analysis.
  • Truss system analysis and design.
  • Truss profile development (RAZ TECH’s engineers have multiple patents in this area).
  • Clip and connector development (RAZ TECH’s engineers have multiple patents in this area).
  • International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) consulting and report development.
  • 3rd party code compliance testing program development.
  • Development of tabulated data for construction product catalogs.
  • Representation at ASTM International.

Our drafting staff has experience in AutoCAD, Revit, Tekla, and other 2-D and 3-D modeling of construction projects and Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems.
