Free Consultation Time

Certainly! Offering a 30-minute free consultation to new clients or returning clients, whether in person or over the phone, is an excellent opportunity to establish rapport and gather essential details about your project. To make the most of this time, it’s beneficial for you to come prepared with architectural plans or a comprehensive understanding of the scope of work.

During the consultation, our primary goal is to understand the client’s vision, requirements, and expectations. We begin by getting to know the client on a personal level, learning about their lifestyle, tastes, and preferences. This helps us tailor our engineering solutions to their unique needs.

Next, we delve into the specifics of the project. If the client has architectural plans, we review them carefully, asking pertinent questions to clarify any uncertainties. If plans are not available, we discuss the scope of work in detail, ensuring that we have a clear understanding of the project requirements.

We inquire about the project’s location to factor in environmental considerations, local regulations, and aesthetic influences. Understanding the site allows us to propose designs that harmonize with the surroundings and meet the client’s objectives. We also consider project’s site location due to areas we provide structural engineering services. Due to competition the farther the project location is the less competitive our fees will become with respect to local structural engineering firms.

Throughout the consultation, we maintain open communication, encouraging the client to express their ideas, concerns, and budget constraints. By actively listening to their input, we can refine our approach and propose solutions that align with their vision while staying within their budgetary boundaries.

Towards the end of the consultation, we provide the client with a preliminary time frame for the project’s completion and an estimated cost. If all necessary information has been provided, we aim to offer a comprehensive overview of the project’s scope and deliverables, enabling the client to make informed decisions moving forward.

In summary, our free consultation serves as a foundation for a successful partnership, allowing us to gain insight into the client’s needs, assess the project’s requirements, and provide valuable guidance and information. We strive to make this initial interaction informative, engaging, and productive, setting the stage for a collaborative and rewarding structural design journey.
