Every Firm Has a Story

Our history starts in a small structural engineering office in Visalia with a strong vision—one that has fueled us as we’ve grown to five offices with over 100 employee owners offering a dozen architectural and engineering services. There are lots of chapters along the way, but this story doesn’t have an ending. It just keeps getting bigger and better.
