What Exactly Is A Structural Engineer?

You may be wondering, what exactly does a structural engineer do?

The answer to that question depends on who’s asking.

If you’re a real estate agent: A structural engineer is the person who reviews the property to ensure it’s structurally sound before the property is sold on the market.

If you’re a homeowner:  After noticing cracks in the foundation of your house, or sagging floors that bounce when you walk, you may want to consider working with a structural engineer who can help you identify the root cause of the problem and can work with you to determine possible solutions.

If you’re a builder:  The structural engineer builds a map that ultimately dictates the outcome of the structure that you are building. If you compare constructing a building to a creating a movie, the structural engineers write and produce the movie while the contractors are the actors that tell the story.
