The design of your Houston custom home or remodel doesn’t start or stop with your architect or builder. A structural engineer ensures your home design will be feasible, safe, and structurally sound well into the future. From soil mitigation techniques and foundation design to thorough framing and roofing plans, a structural engineer is there to make certain your home’s integrity is of the highest standard. Who are the best and most trustworthy structural engineers in Houston?
BEC Engineers and Consultants
BEC Engineers and Consultants has provided their services on thousands of projects for the past 15 years. BEC performs foundation and structural designs as well as analysis and evaluations. Using cost-effective design solutions, the experienced engineering team understands the importance of your home’s structural integrity, often going beyond governmental standards for the best results. However, a solid foundation begins with the ground it’s laid upon, so BEC also provides inspections and solutions for proper drainage for flood mitigation, sanitation management, and utility designs.
If your home was damaged, BEC can perform a damage assessment using forensic engineering. Through evaluating the structure for wind, flood, and fire damage–or otherwise compromised integrity–BEC can analyze your claim to help you move forward to have the damages repaired as soon as possible.
Looking to remodel your home? BEC can assist with interior remodeling, additions, and outdoor living area projects. They will also assess your property’s structural and foundation requirements to create your dream in-ground poolscape.
