How Do I Select a Structural Engineer?
Determine the size and scope of your project; you may wish to consult an architect or contractor first to discuss cost, feasibility and design coordination.
Compile a list of prospects.
Confirm their State Registration.
Select two or more engineering firms and ask for references from previous jobs similar to yours. Verify their expertise in your type of project and their ability to complete projects on time and on budget.
Request that an engineer visit the project site in order to submit a written proposal, including the objectives, anticipated time schedule and engineer's compensation. While some engineers do not charge for a preliminary visit, many do.
