We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these crazy times! For many of us, life has been put on pause while we work through the COVID-19 pandemic together. Did you know that construction sites being closed could actually shorten the process of crafting your next sustainable structural engineering project?
A common misconception in our industry is that we are reliant on these sites to begin your project. Thankfully, this isn’t the case. At PSE Consulting Engineers, we’re huge football fans. Much like an NFL coach wouldn’t show up on Sunday Afternoon without a game plan or playbook ready for kickoff, you won’t be able to begin construction without the proper plans and local permits.
Many don’t realize that construction is just one phase of the design process for a sustainable structural engineering firm. Depending on whether your project is commercial or residential, it will take a minimum of 2-3 weeks to obtain construction plans and permits from local authorities. Beginning this process while construction sites are closed could shorten your design project since there is almost no wait to obtain required permits.
Regardless of whether your project is a modular structure, shipping container building, Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) or custom home, having construction plans finalized before the sites reopen will give you a massive advantage in the construction process. No matter how big or small your project is, we’re ready to discuss your needs.
PSE has experience designing intricate plans for every structure imaginable from private homes and small businesses to working with large corporations. We’ve designed residential homes, mobile barber trucks, bridges, shipping container retail spaces, coffee shops and restaurants (including a Taco Bell) and so much more. We are licensed in all 50 U.S. States, along with British Columbia, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Alberta in Canada.
Our structural engineering firm is ready to begin consulting with you and your team to get all needed construction plans and permits finalized in a timely manner. Having these blueprints ready will allow you to begin building up to a month earlier. Even down to the most intricate specifications, we’ll have your game plan ready for kickoff. Give us a call in Klamath Falls at (541) 850-6300 to get started.
