Design Everest Inc. is a leading provider of Architectural, Structural Engineering & Civil Engineering Plans across the state of California. Over the years, we have executed thousands of residential and commercial projects of all sizes, including Single-Family & Multi-Family Homes, ADU’s and Offices.
In business since 2005, we have been a frontrunner in operating remotely and have built a reputation for exceptional quality, value, dependability, and integrity. Based on our own experience, and also backed by several independent studies, we believed that the Work From Home model would be the future, as it is not only efficient but also sustainable for the environment. Nevertheless, the future is now already here as the COVID-19 outbreak has accelerated the need for most of us to work from home.
At Design Everest, we work relentlessly as a cohesive team of professionals to ensure quality execution of permit sets in a quick turnaround time to the satisfaction of our customers.
There has never been a better time to invest in a small dwelling unit with a workspace in your backyard, or to convert your garage into a workspace, or part-workspace part-dwelling unit. The government has relaxed several norms which now makes it easier to have your own accessory unit right next to your primary home.
This is a viable option for single family homes, as well as for multi family homes like apartments, where new accessory units with or without a workspace can be added within the existing and currently non-living space of a building (eg. storage rooms, basements or garages). If you are a multifamily building owner, this can be a great way to earn additional rental income and increase the value of the property.
If you do not have an option of creating a workspace in an attached or detached accessory dwelling unit as mentioned above, you can still have a home addition or a home remodel done to your primary residence to accommodate a working space in your home.
We understand that while working from home goes a long way in improving overall productivity, it can also be challenging for some, especially if their current home does not support a work space and a working environment. Connect with us and one of our customer success managers will guide you with the best way forward.
If you are planning to build a New Custom Home, this is a great opportunity for you to consider including a Home Office plan from the get go. Our team of professionals will help you in every stage of your project, and our dedicated Project Managers will ensure speedy delivery of quality permit sets so they get approved soon and you can start with the construction.
You can start with the construction only after all the necessary building permits have been approved by the City. Once this is done, we can refer you to our trusted industry partners (contractors).
Our engineers can help you with Construction Administration Services during construction to ensure your Home with Workspace is being built as per plan. This is a great way to ensure no re-work is required later and helps in the timely completion of the project. We can also provide an option of virtual structural observations
We have a dedicated webpage for our clients to reach out to us easily, and a dedicated construction support team to assist you during the construction process.
For residential property owners, the entire process of obtaining quality engineering plans in a quick turnaround time and getting the plans permitted can get overwhelming. Our dedicated Project Managers guide you at every step along the way to ensure that you remain stress free while we deliver!
To start, a Design Everest associate schedules a consultation with you to fully understand your needs.
Once we have an understanding of your needs and you have an understanding of the process, we start working on your project right away. Our goal is to work as one cohesive team.
Our fixed fee includes addressing all city comments (if any) that are part of our scope on our plans, until the permit is approved. Next, we can connect you with reputable contractors in your area, so you can get started with your project right away.

I am very satisfied with the service I received. The plans were ready on time, plan check responces required were minimal. Mathew even checked in while he was travelling. The design was clear and straightforward.
My remodel permit with Cupertino city was stuck for almost an year with 4 engineering comments from city. It was going no where till Amar and Aakash agreed to take up my project and take care of all structural comments with city. They prepared detailed response in short time and project was approved by city immediately. I had great experience working with both Amar and Aakash and I would highly recommend them.
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.
Highly recommend utilizing Design Everest to fulfill all of your Architectural, and Structural design specifications.
Our Architect directed us to this company for structural drawings and plans. I have to say, in the entire process of purchasing a home, coming up with architectural plans for a remodel and then translating into structural drawings, Design Everest was head and shoulders above all the parties involved. The PM (Nanak) was prompt, on top of the details and very responsive. He proactively flagged any delays and hold up in schedule and followed up with updates on status and any feedback from the city or engineer throughout the process. I highly recommend them for their professionalism, promptness and efficiency.
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.

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.
