Architectural Engineering: Structure, p.c. provides cost-effective structural design and system specification to architects and builders. Services honed over 25 years of practice include light frame structural design, value engineering, construction administration, shop drawing review and building inspections including inspection of existing structures undergoing adaptive re-use and rehabilitation. The practice has been organized to lower the cost of construction for both residential and commercial structures by focusing on coordinated structural building systems and by exploring alternatives to the most common solutions, thus assuring that the right solution is documented and in place.

Steven P. Kronenbitter, PE founded and heads AE:S. In his 25 years of design and professional practice in major multi-market engineering and architectural firms, he has worked on projects as diverse as the 350-unit Asbury Methodist Continuing Care Retirement Community in Solomons Island, Maryland; the mixed-use Sansom Commons at the University of Pennsylvania; the 25,000 GSF community center for Pulte Homes’ active adult development of Green Park Village in Wanaque, New Jersey; the mid-rise Four Tower Bridge office building in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania; the Perrot Library in Old Greenwich, Connecticut; the four-story-wood-frame-over-concrete-parking-deck King Farm multi-family residences in Rockville, Maryland for Centex Homes; any number of code updates for merchant built single family product lines; and the foundation for a roller coaster at Morey’s Pier in Wildwood, New Jersey. And this diversity of work has called for an equal diversity of building system design: Wood Frame, Light-Gauge Steel, Masonry, Structural Steel, Cast-in-Place and PreCast Concrete, and Composite Floor and Beam.

Mr. Kronenbitter is a graduate of both Drexel University and The Pennsylvania
State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering and Associate Degree in Architectural Engineering. He holds professional engineering registration throughout the Eastern Seaboard.
