Our Services

Residential Structural Engineering

We work with residential designers, architects, builders and individuals to perform the necessary structural analysis in the development of construction drawings for new home construction, additions and renovations. Many of the surrounding County Building Inspections Department’s require the review and seal for new home construction by a professional engineer. Check with your local building code official prior to beginning your project.

Real Estate Transactions

Almost every residential real estate transaction now includes the hiring of a qualified home inspector to perform a thorough home inspection of the property being purchased or sold. If a home inspector observes a questionable item pertaining to the structure, they should recommend the client contact a qualified professional engineer to evaluate if any repairs or modifications are required. We understand that the time period to perform due diligence can be short; therefore our report turnaround time is reasonable.

Foundation Repair

More and more structures are developing cracks in their foundations, exterior brick veneer walls and floor slabs. Prior to contacting a foundation repair company, a licensed professional engineer should be contacted to make the preliminary assessment of any foundation repair services. This is required by the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors. (See North Carolina Foundation Repair Guidelines).

In Mecklenburg County a Permit is required to be issued for any helical pier projects prior to beginning work. In addition, a final site visit and letter report is required by the professional engineer or a trained employee of the professional engineer. (See Mecklenberg County Code Interpretation).

Deep Foundation Design

If soil testing determines that a standard shallow foundation will not provide adequate support for a proposed residential structure, the installation of a deep foundation (helical piers, timber piles or concrete caissons) can be installed down to suitable bearing soils. We can also assist you in a deep foundation design.
