I have enjoyed working with Estructure tremendously.  They have provided excellent plan review and extraordinary structural engineering services for UCSF for many years.

Truthfully, with Estructure’s help up front, it made the field work so easy those pieces practically installed themselves.

I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your help with this issue. It’s not often when the design team is willing to work directly with a subcontractor on a non-design build job to find solutions. Thank you! I wish they could all be Estructure projects!!
