Design Processes Have Changed, Has Your Engineer?

Gone are the days where one engineer designed all aspects of a building. We specialize in supporting your miscellaneous metals projects, using in-house software and the latest design techniques to bring your value-engineered projects to life. When all your engineer does is stairs, guardrails and misc-metals, they get really good at it.

Engineering, Design and Detailing Services:

We Work With Your Detailers

 We can start with your 50% completed erection drawings.

We will check them for code compliance, providing comments and sketches as necessary, produce calculations and stamp.

Turn-Key Design

We can start with your architectural drawings.

We produce all necessary drawings and calculations before getting approval from the architect, building engineer, and other authorities having jurisdiction, so you can focus on what you do best. Building.

We Work With You

 We can start from scratch.

If you need drawings and calculations for permit and construction, give us a call, or type into the chat bubble in the bottom right. 

Together, we will make your project happen.

Steel Costs are up. We are laser-focused on Driving Your Overhead Down.

You don’t hire an optometrist to do dental work. Why would you hire a high-rise engineer to design your stairs or carport? By focusing on design-build miscellaneous metals, we have the software, templates and details ready to go, saving our time, your time, reducing project fees and decreasing turn-around times.


With a decade of experience in we have worked on projects for Stanford, Google, Facebook, UC San Diego, UC Riverside, UC Merced, Santa Clara University, University of San Francisco, Stripe, Stack, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the SF Fire Department, and hundreds of other, less notable clients.
