HIRING A STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING FIRM
The selection of a structural engineer is a critical component to the construction, operational efficiency and overall cost of the structure. Not all structural engineers are the same. Just because an engineer has a degree does not mean that they have the right skills and the ability to apply them in a way that not only results in a structurally sound building, but also meets code, supports the purpose of the structure, enhances operational efficiency and adds value to the overall project. A thorough examination of both the structural engineering firm as well as its engineers is a good practice.
