The Intelligent Choice

We are a Residential Structural Engineering Firm based in Charlotte, NC specializing in Structural Inspections and Residential Structural Engineering  Designs.

Choose Wisely

There 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.
