Maryann established Estructure in 2000 after working for nearly twenty years at a respected Bay Area firm.

Estructure is founded on ethical business practices and a fundamental commitment to treating our clients, consultants and staff with respect.

As an architect in the Bay Area for over 30 years, I am asked about a recommendation for a structural engineer quite frequently. I answer this question very quickly, Maryann Phipps and Estructure are Extraordinary Structural Engineers. They “get it” and they are easy to talk with to work out issues and exceptional in their willingness to sit down and work through a potential detail, or a problem that comes up on a project or a quick telephone question in real time.
