Severud is a multinational structural engineering consulting firm headquartered in New York City, with additional offices in London and Paris. The firm, founded in 1928 by Fred Severud, has worked on over 12,000 projects around the world.

History[edit]

Severud was founded in 1928[1] by Fred Severud, a Norwegian-American structural engineer and member of the National Academy of Engineering. Originally the firm was called Severud-Elstad-Krueger Associates, then renamed Severud-Perrone-Sturm-Bandel, and finally shortened to Severud Associates.

The company has designed several notable structures. These include Place Ville Marie (1962), the St. Louis Gateway Arch (1965), Madison Square Garden (1968), IDS Center (1973), and AXA Center (1985). Recently, Severud has been the structural engineer for the Thomson Reuters Building (2001), the Bank of America Tower (2009), and Eventi (2010).[2]
