Retaining and Site Wall Design

We believe in design at Human Scale. Long after we're gone, you and your family will live, work, and play around, on and next to the retaining wall we inspected or designed. We take that responsibility as seriously as if it was our family and our money. Let us help you sleep easy with our systematic approach to retaining wall design and inspection that promises both aesthetics and long-lasting structural integrity.

Whether you need to fix a current wall or build an entirely new one, we work closely with our clients to deliver a process that best suits your needs.

Expect a Flexible Framework...

Sometimes a wall is simple, and we’ll be in-and-out in a single visit. Sometimes it’s not. Traditional engineering can sometimes feel a lot like insurance – something you know you probably need but it can be hard to understand what the money is for! Our approach is rooted in Transparency. We’ll explain exactly why and what our recommendations are.

From the initial concept through to completion, we provide simple and clear expert guidance for your specific project, helping you understand the choices you’re making. In the end, you’ll be able to rest assured that your project is safely and cost effectively designed.

...and a Depth of Understanding

Too many structural engineers, especially on projects at the scale of a retaining wall use a one-size-fits-all approach to keep THEIR costs down. We leverage our team-based vast variety of project experience to thoughtfully meet the moment with the patience and deep understanding to keep YOUR costs down. 

We’ve worked with every material you could build with, and we will help you rest easy, knowing our experience is on your side.
