Do you own and operate equipment unique to your industry? Consult with our engineers — we can develop an inspection plan for you!


With core competencies in steel and concrete design, our structural engineering experts can deliver cost-effective and high-quality engineering solutions in the following areas and more:

  • Overhead Crane Structure Design / Below The Hook Design
  • Custom Lift Equipment Design
  • Fall Protection System Design
  • Heavy Machine Foundations & Bases
  • General Structural Steel & Concrete Design


From Design validation to fall protection systems or finite element analysis, IIA offers a wide variety of Mechanical Engineering services around the following areas with approvals for USA, Canada, and EU scopes:

  • Lift Equipment
  • Lift Planning
  • Machine Design and Drafting
  • Design Validation
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Fall Protection Services
  • Automated Inspection Systems


IIA provides expert design engineering and consultation services for the planning and layout of industrial overhead cranes of all types (single girder, double girder, top running and under running). We can supply you with data on the static and dynamic forces generated by an overhead crane operation, including the following:

  • Maximum Wheel Load
  • Side Thrust Load
  • Collision Forces
  • Overturning Moments (for free-standing overhead crane systems)


From vertical life lines to lanyard arrest anchor points, IIA can help your plant set up proper fall protection measures to prevent employees from falling off elevated workstations, overhead platforms, and any work at heights. Our engineers can also inspect and re-certify your fall arrest system as safe for use after the system has been used to arrest a fall. We can also help you develop rescue procedures.


IIA is one of the original pioneers in using 3D scanning for reverse engineering, geometry recreation and 3D modeling. Our process is highly refined and optimized around many industry-specific challenges. Throughout the reverse engineering process, we use our own Deviation Analysis to ensure that each feature and characteristic is accurate to the scanned part. A Deviation Analysis offers a level of precision that is virtually impossible with manual methods and makes full verification cost-effective for customers.


When a lift does not go according to plan, or an equipment failure causes an accident, IIA can help you quickly get to the root cause. Our team is prepared to conduct (or oversee) a thorough, unbiased investigation and provide engineering solutions to ensure equipment will not endanger workers. Along the way, we will help you navigate regulatory requirements for accident reporting and resolution.


Engineered critical lifts help to ensure the safe delivery of any heavy load, and IIA has years of experience doing them. Our services include the following:

  • Lift Plan & Sequences
  • Crane Selection & Final Set Location
  • Rigging Studies
  • Outrigger/Crawler Soil Capacity Load Studies
  • Boom, Load, Rigging & Swing Clearance Checks During Erection & Lifting Phases
  • Wind Studies & Other Site-Specific Hazard Assessments
  • Pre-Start Visit to Lift Plan Compliance

Our team is also experienced in performing Pre-Start Health & Safety Reviews of industrial lift equipment and storage racking.
