TLC Acquires Allan and Conrad, Inc. 

TLC’s design expertise has been enhanced with the acquisition of Allan and Conrad, Inc., a 55-year-old structural engineering firm with roots in Central Florida. Allan and Conrad has successfully completed hundreds of buildings, including facilities for Disney, Orlando Health and Florida Hospital. This strategic acquisition represents TLC’s objective to strengthen our structural engineering practice – one of TLC’s targeted market growth areas – to better provide timely, cost-effective and creative structural solutions to our teaming partners and clients. By joining together two of Central Florida’s oldest engineering firms, together we create a powerful resource to engineer structurally-sound buildings that seamlessly integrate with the buildings’ architecture, while applying the high level of client service that TLC is known for. 

TLC uses high-strength concrete, structural steel, masonry, engineered wood and other materials in a variety of systems, including high-rise, long-span, post-tensioned and tilt-wall design, to deliver high performance buildings. Our diverse portfolio includes most building types, including those that must withstand hurricane strength winds or are required to meet strict anti-terrorism / force protection requirements.

TLC's structural expertise includes:

  • Structural Design
  • Structural Assessments / Renovations
  • Special Inspection / Threshold Inspection (FS 553.71) Rehabilitation
  • Peer Reviews
  • Specialty Design
  • 3D Modeling (BIM)

TLC's structural team is versed in forensic analysis, seismic analysis and a variety of foundation types, each suited to specific requirements. We remain on the leading edge of 3D design and documentation for structural designs, using REVIT and other tools to deliver creative and collaborative solutions to our clients' structural challenges and deliver their vision. 



On Sustainability: "I had a profession, but now I have a cause... We have it in our ability to save mankind. If a building is just a little bit green, it's better than not doing anything at all."
