Our services range from a one page letter to a full set of construction plans.
If you’re putting up a new building, putting on an addition, or altering the structure you probably need a building permit. If the Building Department says you need an engineer, I can help.
If you’re planning a construction project and have questions about the design, I can help. The first call is free and I don’t sell engineering that isn’t needed.
If you’re buying or selling a building and the inspection report calls for an engineer’s opinion, I can help.
My established reputation means that nearly all my business comes from referrals and returning clients.
New house: If you’ve purchased plans, that don’t quite conform to Oregon’s Building Code or if you want to make adjustments – I can provide revised plans and/or engineering needed to build the house.
Concept or sketched plans: I can help by designing and drawing as much of the structure – beams, foundations, shear walls, etc – as you need to permit and build it.
Unusual projects: If you want a cantilevered deck, construction with insulated concrete forms or floors with radiant heat, I can help because I’ve done it. I like the challenge of special designs.
Real estate inspection issues: When a report finds a cracked foundation or recommends an engineer, I can help. I'll tell you if the problem is real or cosmetic and what to do about it.
Barn converted to a shop: Unless it’s purely for agricultural use, a barn must conform to code. My help ranges from a letter certifying code compliance to plans for necessary improvements.
