Welcome to the IDE team Ben!

We just wanted to let everyone know that the IDE team has expanded with more talent in the Northeast!!  Benjamin Van Deventer has joined the IDE team on Monday January 30th and will be working with Austin in the Maine office.  Ben brings experience as he has been working with a structural engineering firm in Portland, Maine for the past 6 years, and already has experience designing residential houses.  He recently wrote and passed his Professional Engineering exam, so he also adds to the IDE list of 6 PE’s!  Ben is excited to get rolling and contribute to the team, and has his sights set on helping grow the Maine office.  Welcome to the IDE team Ben!


The team at Intelligent Design Engineering was prompt and courteous. The office was able to get us an appointment that fit into our timeframe for closing on our house on time. IDE completed our inspection and left us with peace of mind and a plan for repairing the damage that they found. I would highly recommend the company and would use them again in the future. Great customer service.
