Welcome to Anderson Structural Group

After 44 years of structural design I have decided to retire. We still have a few projects under construction but ASG is no longer taking on new projects.

I would like to thank my clients and associates that I have worked with over the years.

Construction has been completed on five new ASG projects designed with Rainforth-Grau Architects.


Students are currently enjoying new multi-purpose and science classroom buildings in Chico, CA. ASG also designed new MP buildings in Brentwood and Manteca, CA, and completed a five building modernization (also in Manteca). We are currently working on industrial shop classroom upgrades with Rainforth-Grau at the San Joaquin Delta Community College in Stockton, CA.

In addition to conventional structural designs, ASG specializes in school projects that fall under the jurisdiction of the California Division of the State Architect (DSA).
