It's always good to have another set of eyes review a project for potential construction issues. During the design of the project the consulting teams coordinate with other disciplines and fine tune their own designs. However, as deadlines approach and small changes are made, coordination of those changes sometimes gets missed. I can review all of the project drawings to determine potential construction issues before the drawings hit the field.
These plan reviews can also include:
Before a structural consultant is selected for a project, that project has typically been in design with the architect and civil engineer for at least a year. I can help the design process during that time to answer structural questions and give structural guidance before the project structural consultant is selected.
I can also provide structural forensic work and/or expert witness testimony for your existing buildings with failures, damage, or any other issues you may need.
It is sometimes advantageous to have a third party inspector for your projects during construction, especially if you are in need of an unbiased opinion as to how things are moving along.
Or, perhaps you are a builder in need of your own engineer to help provide solutions to field issues. Many times those solutions can be presented to the structural engineer of record in order to expedite approvals.
I am a graduate of Texas A&M University, Class of 1994. I graduated with a civil engineering degree with a structural emphasis while also in the Corps of Cadets, Squadron 16.
In October of 2002, I started Integrity Structural Corp in the corner of my bedroom and grew it to a 50 person structural engineering firm with locations in Houston and Chicago. The company is still in existence under the expert leadership of my former partners: John Coulson, Ben Johnson, and Karla Rodriguez.
My expertise is in wood framed structures and their foundations as well as in steel framed structures, both structural and light gauge. I am a national expert in wood framing up to 5 stories in height, wood shrinkage, and windstorm compliance for Texas Department of Insurance as well as in Florida
