We help you clear building department hurdles...

Navigating the building permit application process within the various building departments can be arduous. We realize many residential construction projects do not engage the services of a structural engineer during the planning and design phase due to the past experience of the contractors and designers. However, we also understand the Owner's scope occasionally creeps and sometimes unforeseen existing conditions are discovered during construction that complicates the project plan.


Your initial thoughts help drive our design...

We appreciate and will certainly rely on your field experience when reviewing and considering potential solutions options with you. An ideal solution is listening to your initial thoughts for guidance so our final design is buildable and practical for you on site. Compliance with the building code, satisfying the building department requirements, and getting the issue in the rearview mirror is our collective goal. 


Wide Range of Residential Construction Experience...

We have been exposed to many different types of construction project types, sizes, and situations. Our experience and capability also includes a wide range of other facility management issues and situations involving other design disciplines. This experience focuses our attention with every problem or situation towards solution options that will minimize impact on other trades, while preserving the overall design intent as much as possible.
