Structural Engineering Services for Custom Single-Family Homes

We know that home is where the heart is and working closely with clients to make that vision a reality is important to us. With a keen eye for detail, and design, and a commitment to coordination between architectural and structural drawings, we coordinate often and early. We will highlight our experience in handling custom residential projects, emphasizing the importance of coordination, flexibility, and proactive communication. Our passion for architecture and dedication to exceeding client expectations make us the ideal partner for bringing dream homes to life.

Attention to Detail in Custom Residential Projects:
In custom residential projects, attention to detail is crucial. Every element must be meticulously coordinated to achieve the desired outcome. For example, we recall a project involving a large sliding door, where even an eighth of an inch mattered. Through seamless coordination between architectural and structural drawings, along with effective communication with the contractor, we were able to help ensure a precise fit. We understand the significance of such details and strive to deliver accurate and seamless designs.

Flexibility and Accommodation in Custom Home Design:
Custom homes often require accommodating unique design elements, large open spans, and specific structural considerations. We pride ourselves on being flexible and adaptable to the architect’s vision, while still maintaining structural integrity. We understand that not all walls will align perfectly, but we work closely with architects to recommend efficient wall alignments that respect their design intent. Our team is dedicated to finding solutions and minimizing the need for costly rebuilds or modifications.

Proactive Communication and Collaboration:
During the construction phase, our proactive approach to communication plays a vital role. We work closely with contractors, providing them with early insights into potential detailing challenges. By initiating proactive discussions, we can address coordination issues in advance, ensuring smooth progress on the project. We understand that what is on paper may differ from what is encountered on-site, and we strive to adapt and find solutions without burdening the contractor with unnecessary rework.

Creating Comfortable, Inspiring Custom Homes:
We are committed to going beyond minimum code requirements when requested and prioritizing the client’s experience, needs, and desired performance for seismic resilience. We put ourselves in our client’s shoes, considering how their custom home will be used and lived in. From accounting for vibration effects in the flooring system to implementing industry standards in every detail, our goal is to transform their dream home into a comfortable and inspiring reality.

Passion, Values, and Sustainable Relationships:
Our passion for architecture drives our commitment to providing cost-effective and efficient building solutions. By listening to and understanding our clients’ needs, we deliver unparalleled service tailored to each project. Trust, integrity, and ingenuity form the foundation of our relationships, fostering sustainable partnerships with clients. With a track record of successfully completing over 250 single-family homes, including remodels and additions, we have the expertise to handle various project types and complexities.
