Also known as “drafted architectural plans” or “structural plans,” engineering designs can come in a variety of small to large scale projects. These can include an entirely new building, proposed additions, roof adjustments (such as added dormers or skylights), deck designs, or remodeling projects involving the removal of a post or bearing wall.
Getting it right the first time. Anyone who has ever had a new home built knows quite well, it is far easier and most cost effective to iron out potential wrinkles ahead of time on a drafted plan set, rather than once the construction has begun. Our drafted architectural or structural plans can also help our clients stay within their proposed budget. For example, a homeowner wants a skylight in their master bedroom, but cannot afford to in the initial phase of construction. We can design the framing in the plans, so that in the future, the skylight can be easily installed once their finances are available. This process is easier and cost effective because the framing adjustments are already made!
Our team is proud to offer top-notch engineering design services. Homeowners, architects, contractors, property managers, and residential & commercial realtors come to us for these services for a variety of reasons. We frequently work with homeowners who want a set of architectural plans that will allow them to see what their proposed new home or remodel will look like—this can include the sizes of the rooms, where the storage areas will be, and the general kitchen layout. Structural plans can help contractors construct these designs at a quick and cost-effective manner. We have done many projects for building inspectors as well, who typically have a keen eye for identifying problems, but they require an engineered solution to establish a fix.
The possible scenarios for these engineered plans and drafted sketches are seemingly endless. As building inspection engineers, Team Engineering looks at structures every day with a critical eye for practical solutions. Our engineered design services allow us to draw your solutions into reality.
