I hired DE for structural engineering drawings for a small addition. Excellent work, reasonable cost for drawings. To the homeowner - foundation work is extremely expensive, as codes are updated every two years. What used to be sufficient is considered inferior now - none of this is DE's fault, their work is excellent. However - expect foundation costs to be 25% of the cost of your job. It is what it is. You'll save $ on the engineering with DE.
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 foundation and 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 the amount they charged for the engineering visit! Everything went very smoothly and they were very open with 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.
