Retaining Walls

Retaining walls can be the centerpiece of any project, but they require careful design and analysis, which is why most jurisdictions require engineering approval for designs over two feet.  Whether starting from scratch or analyzing a design you already have, I can help with your wall project.


Some decks can have complicated loading or bracing needs.  From the house connection to the foundation to determining if that hot tub can be supported, I can assist in deck design analysis and provide you with sealed plans to aid in the permitting process.

Patios & Pergolas

You can provide your customers with many types of outdoor places to relax;  I can provide assistance with the underlying engineering.  From patios with a freestanding fireplace, to pergolas, to an in-ground swimming pool, I'm here to back you up with sound engineering design.
