Residential Home

Single Family Residential Design

We believe in design at Human Scale. No other building type better meets this criteria than a single-family home. Long after we're gone a family will live, work, play, and grow in the building we helped become reality. Most of the time, the structure gets covered up, so we're successful when our work lets your vision show through. Let us help you optimize your space and cost with our systematic approach to residential design that promises both aesthetics and long-lasting structural integrity.

Whether you are a builder creating homes for your clients or a homeowner dreaming of a new place for your family we work closely with every client to deliver a process that best suits your needs.

Expect a Flexible Framework...

Traditional engineering processes always seem to say “no” more than “yes.” Our Flexible Framework enables us to think outside the box, transforming constraints into creative opportunities for your single family project. Our approach to renovation or ground-up construction is rooted in a Flexible Framework that enables us to tailor structural engineering solutions that align with your vision.

From the initial concept through to completion, we provide simple and clear expert guidance in selecting the optimal materials and construction systems 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 be thrilled with the look and feel of your home.

...and a Depth of Understanding

Our designs for single family homes often involve a mix of materials and wood products, a strategy we call the ‘hybrid’ approach. It’s about using the right material for the right part of the building, given the market conditions and a deep understanding of construction. We help you understand the choices and then guide you to the best one for right now.

Too many structural engineers, especially on projects at the scale of a single family home 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.
