  • "I have used Design Everest for several houses and the experience has been great each time. They have a team of designers, architects, structural engineers, and project managers to make sure things are constantly being completed and moving forward.
    We went through countless iterations until my vision was brought to life. Their guidance and experience helped navigate through issues before the arose, bringing our dream into reality.
    I will recommend Design Everest to anyone looking to complete the plans of their dreams quickly with a team of experts at a reasonable price. "

  • Extremely professional, superbly responsive, meticulous in their quality of work.

    "I am impressed with Aakash and his team. Extremely professional, superbly responsive, meticulous in their quality of work. I could not have asked for more. I have definitely enjoyed working with them and would certainly recommend them to friends and family !!"

  • "I have worked with 4-5 engineers over the last two years of running my architecture firm. Sadly, I hadn't quite found an engineer that was a good fit for me. After working with Design Everest on 3-4 projects in the last few months, I've been really impressed. They have a clear pricing structure, thorough drawings and calculation. They have taken the initiative to drive project progress and work well with owners and consultants. Highly recommended if you need any structural work done in the Bay Area!"

  • "This was our first opportunity to (work) with an architectural design team and the experience couldn't have been better. From our initial conversation with Josh who made me feel like I was talking to a friend as he explained every detail and price point to our amazing experience working with our Project Manager, Nanak. Like Josh he took the time to explain every aspect of the project, constantly checking in to make sure our questions were answered and that we were comfortable throughout the process with unmatched professionalism. To say this team would be highly recommended by my wife and I would be an understatement. They took the Customer Experience to a level that's difficult to replicate."

  • We were in the middle of a difficult job that required several weeks of planning and at the last minute our structural engineer was unavailable leaving us (on a weekend) just two days from the start date - cancelling would have meant waiting weeks to reschedule and a hefty cancellation fee (not to mention leaving the materials out in the yard). We reached out after seeing the great reviews to Design Everest team on a Saturday morning asking for help and a quick turnaround not sure if it could be done. Not only did they get us a contract and estimate within hours, but later that day we met with an engineer on site who was able to provide guidance and advice that allowed us to proceed with the job with no interruptions. I cant recommend this team highly enough - in this current environment where it is difficult to find licensed structural engineers this group was a lifesaver and we will use them exclusively for future remodel and construction needs. Thanks Design Everest - possibly the best thing to come out of 2020!

  • "Best engineering company ever! Expensive but absolutely worth it. No brainer company with fixing all issues by comments from the city."

    - Adam
  • "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."

    - Anil M. San Jose, CA
  • "We worked with a designer, a project manager, a structural engineer, and a Title 24 expert from Design Everest to design an ADU. Their close coordination allowed us to remotely design a custom ADU during the coronavirus epidemic. They were patient and allowed the design to iterate many times. Now it's time to build the ADU!"

    - Douglas M. Marina Del Ray, Los Angeles
  • "I used Design Everest for the structural engineering on a new single family home. It was a unique project as it is in the burn scar of the Valley Fire in Lake County. We are building on the foundation from the previous home. From my first contacts with Design Everest, they were professional, excellent listeners and worked to be accommodating on this unusual project.
    We had a "bump in the road" and the team worked together to quickly resolve the problem and turned out great results.
    The plans were reviewed by the County Building Department on the first pass and the permit issued. We are now starting construction.
    I would highly recommend the services of Design Everest."

    - Patrick K. Sacramento, CA
  • "To complete plans for a garage to ADU conversion, I did what I always do! I went to Yelp to find an engineer. I got several quotes through Yelp's consultation/quote platform and settled on this company for their responsiveness and reasonable pricing. They were able to provide engineering plans coinciding with the city's requests, provided them in a timely manner, and they were approved during the subsequent plan check. Bonus services I wasn't aware of when I signed a contract with them.... dedicated service line for engineering questions during the construction process, and access to an assigned project manager to help facilitate the process. The payment was seamless and involved two phases, with final payment once the plans were delivered. Customer service was exceptional throughout and now I enjoy their periodic educational emails on hot topics in real estate. I didn't realize, but this branch is part of a series of offices of a large company. So you get the resources of a large company with the personalized feeling of a mom-and-pop shop."

  • They promised a date and delivered
    right on time.

    "Design Everest is a very organized and professional company, I can't say enough good things about them. They are very prompt and courteous in all communications. Their prices are competitive. I recently had a project I needed engineering for right away, they promised a date and delivered right on time which enabled the project to continue without any headaches. Thank you, Design Everest!"

  • Our company, City Construction, has had
    nothing but positive experiences.

    "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."

  • "I rarely see such kind off service in the construction space in the bay area. So was happy to see that; and would 100% recommend them to anyone. You will not regret going with Design Everest - (i can comment on the structural engineering services). They provide high quality work, at reasonable rates and have real high standards for their customer service." Click here to read the full review.

  • "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."

    - Samantha Aberle
  • 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."

  • "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..."

  • 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."

  • "I wanted to see if my house would require any retrofitting and started looking online and found Design Everest. They initially wanted to visit my house to assess the current condition and to judge the level of retrofitting required.An engineer visited my house to look at the foundationand current state of the house. He made me understand what would be required to completely retrofit the house. They came back with a quote to do the engineering for the retrofit and also they credited back with a quote to do the engineering for the retrofit and also they credited back the amount they charged for the engineering visit!
    Everything went very smoothly and they were very open with the communicating the progress and they completed their work on time and city engineers also passed the design without many comments. I am very happy to have found them and I would recommend them to all."

  • The entire process from start to finish
    was exceptional.

    "We used Design Everest for structural plans to remove two load bearing walls for our home renovation. The entire process from start to finish was exceptional. We had the pleasure of working with Jessica, Zaira, and Matt. They went above and beyond to help us coordinate the permit package in a quick turnaround time. They were extremely friendly, promptly returned calls or emails (even on their days off on occasion), and flexible to our requests for changes. The whole team was professional and the cost and turnaround time was very fair compared to some of the other quotes we received. We had our permit finalized last week without one change required from the city! I would most definitely use Design Everest for any future work as well as recommend them if given the chance."

  • "I would like to thank Design Everest and Dan Naum on a job well done. I called Design Everest to inspect my townhouse because I was having problems with the HOA. When Dan arrived to my residence, the first thing he did was ask what was my issues and what I wanted from him. I explained my situation and Dan took it from there. He did a thorough job and explained what his findings were. Once again great job from Design Everest and especially Dan Naum."

    - Rodney J
  • "I worked with Josh at Design Everest to schedule a residential foundation assessment and report.
    Josh had great follow through, great communication, and was able to schedule an engineer's visit in just a few days.
    The engineer was professional and had the completed report back to me in 3 days flat.
    The price was very fair compared to other estimates I received."

    - Vanessa C Glendale, LA
  • "I called Design Everest because we had notice some settling in our house and on our deck after having lived in the house for a year and wanted to have a structural engineer come take a look to asses the situation. Design Everestwas prompt and friendly, and sent an engineer to take a look. While on site, he took me around the structure and showed me what he was seeing. He answered all my questions and produced a thorough report. Fortunately, my foundation is in tip top shape but the piece of mind was definitely worth having them take a look."

    - David D. Berkeley, CA
  • "DE was amazing with their follow up and providing us quality service in a prompt manner. They seem to be a one stop shop and can still customize what you need.
    Communication is a strength and they were able to do as much hand holding as I needed. Highly recommend!"

    - Jules M. Oakland
  • "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."
