Richardson Sports has been in business in the Eugene area for over 50 years! MAE Engineering is proud to have led the design team that helped this local business meet its growing demands adding more than 29,000 sqft of additional warehouse space.
The warehouse addition was constructed with 40 foot tall prestressed concrete panel walls on three sides. Complete with loading docks, a shipping office, breakroom, restrooms and more, this warehouse addition is designed to seamlessly integrate to the existing Richardson Sports facility giving this thriving business room to grow.
Incorporated with the prestressed concrete panel design is the steel brace and column system which works to keep this large space open as well as allowing for greater interior building heights that simply wouldn’t be practical with other building systems.
Prestressed concrete panels offer a simple design solution that lends itself perfectly to a large structure such as the Richardson Sports warehouse expansion. Allowing for accelerated construction schedules, this building system provides an efficient and durable design without sacrificing quality.

MAE had the pleasure of working with the design team on the Jasper Mountain facility. This breathtaking structure incorporates timber frame construction as well as steel, concrete and even a set of glass stairs!
With the demolition of the existing service area, Kendall Ford upgraded to a modern facility that includes fifty-nine service bays, six quick lube bays, and five customer service lanes.
After the project’s first phase was well under construction MAE assisted with foundation and component design for the service center. Later, we were contracted for the full structural design and associated seismic retrofitting for the 15,000 sf showroom.
This remodel involved removing multiple bearing walls to open the showroom floor. Additionally, the seismic retrofit involved Fiber Reinforced Polymer wraps (FRP) to strengthen and preserve the existing concrete systems. We were able to provide engineering services that was economical and timely to help the construction team get back to their desired schedule.
The Bandon Christian Fellowship addition is nearing completion! This project incorporated a General Steel Building – steel super structure with a court sized exercise room, education rooms and mezzanine structure. MAE worked side by side with the owner and Architect to help bring this project from concept to reality.
Talk about a high wire act! In 2018 the Hult Center for the Preforming Arts needed to install a new lighting system for the Lion King Production. The only catch was the lighting system needed to be suspended some 60 feet above the stage, all without interfering with the aesthetic of the beautifully designed Sylva Hall basket weaved ceiling!
The key to this projects’ success stemmed from MAE working with the expert guidance of the Hult Center Staff. We also relied on the specialized contractors Extreme Access to finalize a design solution that met all the projects structural needs, was feasible to construct and maintained the desired visual style.
Our final agile structural design, involved constructing three steel anchor points within the Hult Centers existing concrete bulb truss system. This system would then support steel columns and a beam below. The Hult Centers rigging team would then have the ability to tie off the Lion Kings specialized lighting truss where they needed it, and then be able to remove it after the performance was over.
Sometimes our clients have unique and lofty expectations. The team at MAE has the tools and expertise to take on even the most challenging of projects.
