Structural Design

Structural and Custom Residential Design

We provide all required structural information on the plans including beam sizes, floor framing, roof bracing, foundation layout and more, to give you the Code required support and performance that you need. We include all applicable details and Standard Notes for the builder to follow. The final plan is reviewed in-house to ensure accuracy and sealed by a Professional Engineer.

Mecklenburg County Plan Review Notes

This is a structural design service for all structures being built in Mecklenburg County. We cover all structural items on the Mecklenburg County Plan Review Checklist to ensure your plan has all the required information and notes to pass Plan Review and get permitted. We have built a strong relationship with building officials over the years, and we definitely make the process easier and faster for everyone involved.

Pricing For Plans

Pricing, like your project, is custom and there is no flat price that matches all projects. We base our pricing on size and complexity of the structure and the amount of information required. Contact us for more information, or bring your plan in and we will give you a proposal for engineering services on the spot.

We are considering some renovations to our home and needed a structural review of the existing construction. IDE handled it with ease and at a very reasonable cost. From the initial phone call to the completed report, IDE was a pleasure to work with. The engineer crawled below and above, spent time listening to our plans, answered all questions, then delivered a highly detailed assessment and informative report within a couple of days. He also had some suggestions of firms to conduct the work. I highly recommend these folks!
