Our Services


DP Advanced Engineering, Inc. proudly offers a variety of structural engineering services that includes the following:

  • Custom Home Design
  • Additions & Renovations
  • Residential Subdivisions
  • Commercial TI & New Construction
  • Site Inspections & Structural Evaluations
  • Real Estate Inspections
  • Seismic Upgrades of Commercial & Residential Structures
  • Resolution of "Red Tagged" Projects
  • Owner Support Services

    We are pleased to work directly with owners at any stage during the design process. We perform structural assessments of existing buildings, provide structural evaluations of existing conditions/capacities, and investigate the feasibility of renovation ideas. We also conduct building inspections of residential and commercial facilities to provide prospective owners with a review of the structural condition and considerations for a particular building.

    Homeowners often have their own designs and may need assistance with only the engineering aspect. We will develop electronic versions of hand-drawn plans as a CAD service, which can then be extended into development of construction drawings if desired. Construction drawings include foundation plans, floor and roof framing plans and any necessary details. We will work directly with the owner, or you can have us coordinate with your chosen builder.

  • Architect Support Services

    We provide full engineering support to architects in varying capacities aimed to meet your individual needs. We provide services ranging from engineering review of structural drawings developed by your in-house designers, to full construction document development with framing plans and details to accompany your architectural drawing set. We also perform construction administration services and field inspections. Working together with us, you and your client have enhanced resources and assurance throughout the design and construction phases.

  • Contractor Support Services

    As designs become more complex there may be parts of a structure which require analysis, design and/or detailing beyond the capacity of your crew. Whether you need simple beam sizing or complex steel detailing, we will work with you to develop buildable solutions which meet your client's design goals.

  • Real Estate Inspections

    Structural building inspections are performed to assess the existing conditions of a building to provide prospective buyers with a thorough understanding of their potential investment. Often general building inspections will note a structural defect such as a sagging roof, tilting foundation wall or deflecting floor. DP Advanced Engineering, Inc. provides a detailed written analysis of existing conditions as well as recommendations for retrofit alternatives. This service is a valuable tool for prospective buyers.
