Engineer’s Back Office
Have you been faced with the challenge of delivering more projects with fewer resources and shorter time? You’re not alone.
Dr. Nabil Taha, PhD., P.E. S.E. spent many long hours researching new sustainable materials and design techniques. He wanted to know simple questions such as: How do you design Light Gauge Steel, SIPs, Rammed Earth, Bamboo or Straw Bale walls for seismic forces? How about modular buildings? How do you put a modular structure together to resist lateral loads? Dr. Taha has done all the research to acquire the best answers for you. We can design and perform structural engineering for all these new and unique structures, or if you want to do them yourself, we can provide excellent technical and professional consultations for you at a very reasonable price.
The team at PSE is happy to provide engineering services for a variety of structures using both traditional and alternative building materials.
We can provide excellent Engineering Consulting Services for the following types of structures:
Are you tired of seeing the same cookie-cutter designs? We also lead the industry in engineering alternative structures, such as:
- Geodesic Domes
- Monolithic Domes
- Modular buildings, homes or coffee Shops

- Give us an idea, sketch, or preliminary drawing, and we will work under your direct supervision to develop these drawings and send them back to you ready for your review and use.
- Tell us about your project, and we will work together to analyze it, design it, and get it done to your specifications. PSE will require direct supervision on all parts and elements of the project.
