  • I would unequivocally recommend them and look forward to working with them on future projects.

    We hired Design Everest in the midst of a headlong rush to meet a high consequence, do-or-die regulatory deadline. If permitted in time: secure retirement. If not…unthinkable disaster. To complicate matters, this was happening in the middle of a building boom: all local engineers were booked months out, minimum. Design Everest came up first on google; that’s all we knew about them. They sent references and it immediately became apparent that they are a solid, established outfit. We began to relax just a little.

    Their rush upcharge was modest and fair, especially considering that their base fee was lower than anyone else, and their default turnaround time already faster than anyone else's. I had started the structural engineering on this project myself, with guidance from a long-time friend and college who is a real engineer. Design Everest’s quote handily beat both his price and his timeline to finish the job. My friend suggested that we go ahead and try them in light of my time line, but warned me that a large, get-it-done firm like this was likely to run roughshod over the nuances of our design and unusual preferences.

    Our project turned out to be even more complicated than any of us thought. It had a number of things no one had ever seen before. Additionally, we have environmental considerations that went well beyond the usual and foreclosed on the option of just throwing concrete and steel at the problems until solved. Despite taking what I suspect was far more hours from more senior staff than I think they based their quote on, Design Everest respected their originally quoted price. The speed were were going posed yet more complications. For example, we were feeding them drawings to base their engineering on before they were entirely finished. All this was successfully navigated. I felt like the nuances and preferences were respected as much as building codes allowed. We were over a barrel with the high stakes timeline, and others had taken advantage of our vulnerable position. I half expected an email shaking us down for more money, but Design Everest really stuck to the high road and just performed. The first submission had a number of easily solved comments, the revised submission had zero comments on the structural. I would unequivocally recommend them and look forward to working with them on future projects.

  • They really spent time to understand what my project needs.

    Design Everest has been excellent to work with. They really spent time to understand what my project needs were and provided excellent feedback. They are very responsive to all communications for my projects. They are all very skilled and I would not hesitate to use them again for all of my future engineering projects.

  • The engineers at Design Everest were very efficient and cost effective.

    Aakash and the engineers at Design Everest were very efficient and cost effective. My project was very complicated, and the building permit process, and inspections, in Sausalito are rigorous. More specifically, I needed a detailed plan for an elevated deck situated on a steep slope. I am very pleased with the result, and with the polite and professional treatment that I received.

    I have had the pleasure to work one on one with Design Everest. Our company, City Construction, has had nothing but positive experiences with their entire team thus far. Whenever time is of the essence, they continuously meet our needs every single time and are very helpful when we have questions throughout the process. I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to any of my clients, friends or family.

  • Very detailed oriented and extremely responsive.

    As part of a remodeling project in our home in east bay, I had pleasure to work with their engineer. I found him very detailed oriented and extremely responsive. In no time he could understand complex structure of the home and came up with the engineering design of the remodel. The city approved his design in no time. Will definitely recommend him!

  • Delivered on time, provided a high-quality and most importantly a cost-effective solution.

    After connecting through their Craigslist ad, I was immediately impressed with their responsiveness, can-do attitude and refreshingly straightforward approach. My project had some unusual structural aspects which seemed to disturb in some manner other structural engineers (resulting in some out-of-sight bids - and wild, expensive solutions). Design Everest delivered on time, provided a high-quality and most importantly a cost-effective solution - and continue to support me through the implementation process. It's a delight to find such a capable, honest and courteous professional to work with on a challenging project. Thank you!!

  • I purchased a large carport for 5th wheel and boat cover here in the middle of the Mojave desert. The carport was used, was assembled for two days and red tagged by the city. The owner failed to permit, obtain any plans, etc.
    I purchased it st a great price. When I started my journey I obtained the Town's requirements. I need structural engineering. I emailed some here on Yelp (which worked great) Design Everest replied quickly.
    Now, I gave then my graph-paper drawings and lots of photos. Jessica and Ali has the patience of Job. I was in no real hurry yet because no permit was pulled yet. I received plans by email and appear through.
    I will be pulling permit this week and Jessica guaranteed they are married to this project and will make any corrections required by my Town. Communication was great! Staff was always available by email and telephone.
    The best part was they were able to take on a difficult case with little information from me and none from the manufacturer. I would recommend them and use again.

  • "These SE (structural) guys are the top best. We highly suggest getting started with a quick call to Josh and setup your LA design needs. We found him to work on a LA hillside property in the City of LA and have been doing other LA and Long Beach design Remodel projects near there. They have done Structural Reports as well as Details and Calculations for other LA Building Projects. The service is great and the speed of communication helps when permits are processed at turbo intervals. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST..."

  • "I hired Design Everest(DE) to do an engineering study with lateral analysis for an addition on a second story of a townhouse(so...complicated).
    I got three quotes, two from solo engineers and another from DE. The prices was very similar (actually DE was the lowest,but barely so). The solo engineers both had very limited customer service skills, was slow to respond, and/or seemed offended by my requests to communicate the need to keep townhouse limitations in mind when drawing up the engineering. One even tried to upsell me on his hardware.
    DE is a company that puts itself between you and the engineer - which is a good thing i found. They respond quickly all the time with good customer service. The engineer (who I never needed to speak with directly besides the site visit) got my townhouse concerns through them and was able to make an appropriate plan that wasn't too complicated without further word from me.
    When the city asked for some further calculations, they responded with their timeline promptly and delivered an update.

    Next time I have need of an engineer.I"ll go straight to DE."

  • Design Everest was the best thing that happened to me when it came to choose a reputable architect company for my dream project. Their communication, work ethic,execution is just top notch. Our main architect was Roman(??) who did a stupendous job from start to finish. My Project was complicated and city of san jose planning deptt was not of any help but design everest team not only helped us meet all the permit requirements but also helped in addressing all the city comments hence getting construction permits. Even during the construction if we had any problem, design.e was right there to help us. I dont know where i would be today without them ,maybe/probably just lost in permit process. They just helped me realize my dream . i highly recommend them and will use their services again if needed.

  • I reached out to Design Everest while looking for a residential structural engineering inspection in what happened to be a very short time window. Although I did not end up needing the inspection in the end, the agent who worked with me (Brittany) displayed the utmost professionalism and responsiveness in communicating between me and the potential inspector on the requirements of my request and timing, including communication after business hours to get everything lined up. This interaction gave me confidence that Design Everest is a well-run organization. As a result, I would definitely look to Design Everest for a structural engineering inspection project in the future.

  • We have used Design Everest on two projects now. One in Soquel and one in Capitola. We have enjoyed working with them, and they have a very fast turn around time. We will continue to work with Design Everest on our future projects.
