30 Years of Experience Open
For nearly 30 years, PINTO has been serving the engineering needs of Nova Scotia, Canada, and beyond. We dedicate ourselves to meeting the needs of our clients in structural & civil design, project management, mediation & arbitration, and forensic investigation.

State-of-the-Art Technology Open
PINTO continues to be an industry leader by incorporating the newest, state-of-the-art techniques in our approach. Our current application of technology utilizes many FEM (Finite Element Modelling) software packages such as ETABS, SAFE, RAM, and RISA. These sophisticated packages are used for integrated design, drafting, and fabrication of tall skyscrapers, long span bridges, and Industrial structures as well as optimizing design solutions. Autodesk's Revit Structure, which is a Building Information Modelling (BIM) software package that is dramatically changing the way projects are realized in the industry, is used on all projects at PINTO.
BIM allows our designers to not only to produce conventional drawings such as 2D plans, but complete 3D models that are actually live views of the virtual building. This enables us to better collaborate with architects, owners, engineers, and construction professionals, thus resulting in optimized designs with fewer errors and less waste, which in turn results in decreased costs for our clients and increased client satisfaction.
Dedication to Clients Open
Highly personalized services and detailed attention to our client's needs are hallmarks of PINTO Engineering. Our dedication to providing highly personalized attention to our clients is supported by our excellent staff of design engineers & technologists, CAD technicians, and administrators whose combined talents and experience give us the necessary expertise in every facet of structural consulting services. The personal involvement of our principal in every project that comes into our office, from preliminary concept to final field observations, ensures that projects are delivered on schedule and within budget.
