It’s widely agreed on in the design industry that professionals prefer to stick to what they do best. For architects, that’s designing buildings, for structural engineers that’s engineering/designing a safe and efficient structure, and for contractors that is building.
In a perfect world, this would be enough to get a high-quality residential home through the three main phases. But what we have found, and what we have based our comprehensive business model on, is the need for architects and contractors to have clear communication and a network of reliable professionals throughout the structural engineering process.
While Design Everest hosts a team of licensed and experienced structural engineers who work alongside architects and contractors, we wanted to go one step further and really hone in on the perfect architect, engineer, and contractor relationship – resulting in an all-inclusive experience complete with customer service and project management to ensure a smooth and timely experience with our team of structural engineers.
Our goal is to foster an environment where our structural engineers could focus on the work they love most while also guaranteeing industry partners, such as architects and contractors, that communication is only a phone call away. We are pleased with the outcome and have actually seen more positive effects than we had anticipated, ultimately creating a better structural engineering service for everyone involved.
Here are a few of the most recognized benefits of working with Design Everest’s structural engineers and our unique process:
Each client of ours is assigned a Customer Service Manager (CSM) and Project Manager. Together these two keep our clients updated on every step of the design process, aiding in the success of your project as well as facilitating communication between your team and the structural engineer, ensuring the whole process is completed on-time and on-budget.
Both our industry partners and structural engineers enjoy this benefit. With the engineer spending less time on business and more time on engineering work, this frees them up to focus more on their projects, which helps architects and contractors with their turnaround times.
We have a full team of highly trained and experienced professional engineers and strict time management procedures. Most of our projects are completed within 2 to 3 weeks and our team is always ready to start a new project, creating lower processing times for architects and contractors.
With both a Customer Service Manager and Project Manager, any and all work goes through a thorough series of checks and balances. Providing our clients with the utmost quality of structural engineering, project organization, and client satisfaction produces a high standard of quality with little room for error.
We work with some of California’s most trained and experienced structural engineers; only partnering with licensed professionals that have a strong track record and work ethic. With our structural engineers focusing their attention solely on engineering, Design Everest is confident this is one of the key ingredients that fuels our high-quality work.
Design Everest not only offers competitive prices, we avoid hidden fees by assessing a project cost in its totality. This means, when we quote your project, we will get the work done within that budget (assuming no major design changes take place). When considering our systems approach to structural engineering, we often provide a much better value that takes turnaround times, quality, experience, and customer satisfaction all into consideration.
Next time you are approaching the structural engineering phase of your project, rest assured Design Everest will be there to guide you through each and every step!

Design Everest is OPEN! We work remotely and are fully committed to taking on and delivering projects.
Design Everest’s remote working model can safely take-up and deliver your projects within the current government guidelines on COVID-19 (a.k.a Coronavirus). This applies to many of our project scopes, including architecture, civil engineering, structural engineering, and construction administration across California.
Design Everest is set up to remotely leverage digital platforms (virtual meetings, calls, emails etc.) in client-facing and internal operations. Over the years, we have advanced this ability to the extent that we can continue supporting new and existing clients across many of our projects. Even projects that need an on-site visit can be fulfilled safely via video calls or in-person visits, where permitted.
Note that the present government guidelines permit the delivery of essential services, including those related to construction.
YES, Design Everest's remote working model enables us to work safely with all clients, suppliers, industry partners, and internal staff as per government guidelines.
Design Everest can still support many of our types of projects (new or ongoing) safely. For example, new custom homes, accessory dwelling units, civil plans etc. We are committed to delivering these remotely and safely as per the current government guidelines. In case of any external dependency that is unavoidable/unavailable, your assigned Custom Success Manager or Project Manager will keep you posted on it and try their best to keep your plans in-progress.
YES, our remote working model enables us to be fully committed to ongoing projects. In case of any external dependency that is unavoidable, unavailable or unsafe, your assigned Custom Success Manager or Project Manager will keep you updated and try their best to keep your plans in-progress. If an on-site visit is not feasible via a video call, we will try our best to fulfill the visit safely, where permitted.
Some of our clients are already going ahead with their projects with us via video calls or virtual meetings. Your assigned Customer Success Manager or Project Manager is happy to help you with this, where needed.
There are multiple reasons for this. It's typical to plan the construction step in the summer. So, clients get started on the pre-construction steps (architecture, engineering, and construction admin) in winter or spring to stick to planned timelines.
Projects such as Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Additions/Remodels enable clients to rent/resale and generate revenue. Meanwhile, many clients are concerned about protecting their families and businesses against earthquakes by retrofitting their homes and buildings. These are just a few of the various reasons why it’s still reasonable for clients to stick to their construction plans.
Feel free to phone us at (888) 311-3015 Alternatively, you may contact your assigned Custom Success Manager or Project Manager directly via phone, email or virtual meetings.
To summarize, Design Everest is OPEN and able to serve new and existing clients, affiliates, suppliers, and industry partners.
Stay safe and rest assured that Design Everest can help you go ahead with your plans as per the recommended safety guidelines!
