Structural Design & Plans for Home Addition & Remodel

Depending on the nature of your intended use, a home remodels, or a home addition by increasing the number of storeys, or a house extension by spreading your living space into the available land in your property by building an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) could be the right solution. Or the perfect solution could even be a combination of remodeling, addition, and/or a home extension! Our experienced Structural Engineer for Home Addition & Remodel in California can help you achieve your objective in the most efficient way.

Structural Engineer for
Load Bearing Wall Removal

for Residential and Commercial Building

While sometimes a load-bearing wall can be identified based on its location, it often takes a certified structural engineer to determine if the wall is load-bearing or not and, if it is, how to safely remove it while still keeping your building structurally safe and sound in the event of an earthquake. Our California structural engineers can determine from either an onsite inspection or by looking at your building's original blueprints that may be on record with your city's building department. The accidental demolition of a load-bearing wall without consulting a licensed structural engineer can cause a lot of damage to both life and property.

Structural Engineer for Seismic Retrofit in California

for Residential and Commercial Building

Is your building prone to earthquakes? Our expert structural engineer retrofit team in California can do the necessary evaluations and engineering for a seismic retrofit or a soft story retrofit. A retrofit essentially entails the addition of structural enhancements that will help protect your building from the effects of earthquakes. Our Structural Engineers in California are well-versed with the Mandatory Soft Story retrofit program Requirements. With the rising risk of Earthquakes in California, it is good to be proactive in order to protect oneself.

Structural Engineer for Mixed-use building

Our team has experience delivering high-quality Mixed-use building permit sets in quick turnaround time for addition, remodel, and new mixed-use buildings.
