WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Thank you for another job well done! We have trusted you with all our structural needs for 5 years now. We appreciate your willingness to fit site visits in quickly and your excellent communication through our projects. Your knowledge and professionalism provide us with peace of mind. That is worth its weight in gold.”
— Melissa Palange, King Bee Construction
We collaborate with architects, who focus on the appearance, shape, size and use of buildings. By applying engineering principals and technology, we help the architect achieve the client’s vision for the project.
Our extensive experience with the design requirements and implementation of current codes gives us the understanding to help determine the crux of a structural failure.
As your advocate, we consult with contractors throughout the construction project, offering expert advice on technical problems that often occur with both new construction and renovations.
Whether a renovation or new construction, we play a vital part in the successful design of your building. This carries over to the construction phase where you can count on us to keep your ultimate goals the highest priority.
We work hand-in-hand with developers and their architectural design and land planning team to ensure constructability of their projects—whether residential, commercial, industrial or other.
Let DEI Engineers help you design and build the structure that best fits your needs—using the most cost-effective solution to your project. Our team approach takes your project from design through construction.
