Need Struct Engineer, San Diego Area


So I need to find another structural Engineer, my go to guy of the last 25 years has recently retired.

The projects would be mainly residential decks and outdoor structures.

hope I can get some referrals here, don't really want to open the phone book and start making cold calls!

Ask your go-to-guy who he respects. He would be a great reference source to start with.

Oh that would have been my first option but he's moved away and I don't know where he went. I haven't talked with him for well over a year.

I know a good guy, the one I use. He is here in OC but he may go down there.
Click on my profile and drop me an email, I will get you in touch.

That's what I'd like, a good personal referral but darn he's too far away, it's an hour and a half drive down here minimum.

Re: Need Struct Engineer, San Diego Area


These guys are the guys my arch uses and he builds some crazy stuff and he is a cheap guy so assume they are cheap. I had to go to their office once to have them fix something and they took care of it, no charge! Laid back people.
