Choose WiselyThere are many structural engineering firms. But whom do you choose? For many, the choice comes from a referral, while some choices are random. Maybe the firm you chose isn't meeting your expectations, maybe they are. Answer the following questions to find out:
- Does your structural engineer call you back in a reasonable amount of time?
- Does your structural engineer deliver on time when promised?
- Does your structural engineer possess the experience to visualize and make quick, confident decisions?
- Is your structural engineer a good listener to your thoughts and ideas?
- Does your structural engineer convey information accurately and understandably on plans and letters?
If you answered "no" to any of those questions, perhaps it's time for a change.

I have been in the design industry for the better part of 14 years. Over this period of time I have worked with a number of engineering firms, ... until I started using Intelligent Design Engineering. I have been pleased with the attention to detail and the willingness to listen to me and my clients' needs. I have been able to call any member of their engineering firm with the trust each of them could handle any issues that may arise. My experience with IDE has been unmatched and I look forward to working with them in the years to come. If you are in need of an engineering firm that is affordable, detailed, and experienced then look no further. IDE has proven themselves time and time again.
