Long-Span Structures

True long span roof structures – with spans over 300’ to 1000’ - present tremendous design challenges and opportunities.  The stakes are very high, and very few structural engineering firms have the required technical chops and experience with this scale of roof.   For over 50 years Walter P Moore has designed signature long span structures for public transportation, entertainment, and sporting venues. Along the way, the firm has established numerous “world firsts” and advanced the science of designing safe, economical, and iconic roof structures. Walter P Moore understands how to use both traditional and emerging materials and structural systems, including membranes, cables, and kinetic systems.  Our construction services include design optimization, erection engineering and connection design for roofs of up to 1000’ span. We are the world leader in the creation of dependable, retractable long span roofs.
