Double-D Engineering

We are a structural engineering firm that has been in business since 1994 and is conveniently located on Otis Street in San Francisco, right behind the City Building Department. Our location gives us easy access to the Building Department which equates to quicker and better service for our clients. Our projects are wide ranging with a majority being residential and low rise commercial construction. We are a firm sized to allow participation by the principal in virtually all aspects of all projects. Our clients are predominantly with Architects, Developers, Design-Build Contractors and Property Owners.

Our Design Philosophy

Our design approach is to have a collaborative effort with the Client, the Architect, and the Contractor. We see ourselves as problem solvers and not project obstructionist. Our goal is to provide an economical solution to designs that push the envelope rather than compromise a design with over-engineering.

We emphasize attention to detail and careful management. Our experienced professionals are trained to respond with creative and cost-effective solutions with decades of structural design experience. We utilize top-level teamwork and technical expertise to bring forth a unique and cost effective design. We enjoy the fact that our clients return again and again and we cherish building these personal relationships. Our engineers are trained to combine the right mixture of technical and practical skills to apply Building Code requirements with an imagination and engineering judgment rarely applied by others.

We understand the importance of sound structural design that facilitates construction with a well-coordinated and clear set of Structural Drawings. Thus, we never forget take importance of engineering as a service profession and always provide a reliable product in a reasonable response time. We have become, without a doubt, the firm people contact once others have failed to offer timey service and economical designs.
