Why a Small Structural Engineering Firm?

Small structural engineering firms provide distinct advantages for clients, including:


As a small structural engineering firm with low overhead we can afford to remain intimately involved with the project throughout its design and construction.

Efficiency in structural engineering decision making

David Inlow, S.E. is the lead structural engineer for all large projects. Being the principal of the firm makes him accountable only to his clients. This means faster results for our clients.

Value in Structural Engineering

Without large overhead costs our clients' money translates into more experienced professional structural engineering hours invested into a project. We take pride in our commitment to understand and respond to the engineering needs of our clients. Our success in the building design industry has to be dependent on our responsiveness. We are committed to providing immediate, knowledgeable responses to our clients' questions, changes, or needs at any time during the life of the project.

Cost effectiveness cannot be measured simply in construction dollar savings. Cost effectiveness is achieved by applying our commitment to quality and responsiveness to each project. This commitment is not deterred by project size or technical difficulty.

Structural Engineering Cost Control

iAssociates projects have been built at or under budget. Our experience has helped us to know what types of designs and systems are affordable and easy to build and which are not. Additionally, iAssociates works with contractors on integrating cost planning into the design phase of projects. Quantities can be shown within the Schematic Phase documents and from that point forward any changes in quantities can be accounted for.(See Partnering for Success).
