Thank you Navnika. I want to say thank you to the whole BE team as well for your support throughout this process.

Our residential solar carport, (built and inspected in 2020 to support a 30 panel solar PV array system), required an independent professional structural engineer evaluation due to modifications of the County of Hawaii building structural code last year.

Other structural engineering firms on the BIG ISLAND and in Honolulu all replied that they were backlogged with clients, it would be at least 6 months before they could even consider my project.

When I contacted Dana at BE Structural, she replied "YES WE CAN! take on your project right now".
Within days, Dana’s PE team began and promptly completed their comprehensive structural evaluation with stamped documentation.

My Solar PV system provider was then able to submit this required structural evaluation for my solar permit application, which the County of Hawaii building permit department has now approved.

Had it not been for BE STRUCTURAL’S  "CAN DO" attitude and professional evaluation to satisfy the revised County of Hawaii building code requirement, I’m sure that I would still be in search of / waiting for a professional engineering firm to accept my project.

BE STRUCTURAL is a superb solution provider.

New Home Build Structural Inspection

My husband and I had a new house built by a well known builder. We moved in and noticed that there were some issues. As this is a new build, I was worried. We contacted Bruce and he was very attentive, supportive and thorough. He took his time looking at everything down to the plans for the build and photos we had during the construction. He went through his process step by step to make sure we understood what he was seeing. His report was completed in a timely manner and was very detailed. We are now able to confidently go to the builder to have them repair what is needed.

Structural Analysis for Renovation

It was refreshing to know that Bruce and his associates put our needs and safety first. He and his staff were a pleasure to work with from the start. Bruce was very thorough in his inspection of our home and explained in detail what we would need done as well as provided expertise in other areas beyond our structural needs. His advice provided us the information we needed to pursue our renovation dream. His associates were also very professional and, like Bruce, communicated well with us eliminating any doubts that we had. They worked hard to meet our time constraints given all the variations in our plans. We will definitely hire BE Structural again should the need arise. Hiring BE Structural was the best thing we did! Thank you Bruce and everyone that assisted us in realizing a dream.

The Resource Factory is involved with many high profile, extremely creative projects. At times, our projects require “out of the box” thinking. Some engineering firms tend to shy away from a few of the creative challenges our projects require. BE Structural is always eager to move forward, without hesitation while maintaining the utmost professional attitude. BE Structural has proven to be an excellent extension of my quality driven studio, providing solutions and contributing ideas while helping to bring our projects to reality. I will continue working with the BE Structural’s staff on my future projects.

Structural Analysis and Repairs

We have worked with the staff at BE Structural since the start-up of our new plant and are very happy we found them. Amongst other work they have done for us, their structural engineers not only drew our mezzanine for us, they sent their expert staff to our facility to verify that their drawings and what we needed perfectly matched. Their staff members know the business inside and out and are very professional – yet are very down-to-Earth, good people. They are honest and they aim to please – which is what they do. They are people of their word. We are so glad we met them and have had the opportunity to work with each and every one of them. As we grow, we will choose BE Structural for all our future needs.

Structural Analysis and Repairs

After 11 years, a crack opened up in the exterior wall of our house. Prior to purchasing our home, we were told that there had been foundation settlement issue that had been repaired, and was stable. This crack extended the entire height of my two story home. After calling a local contractor, my wife and I were very quickly overwhelmed with the proposed solution, and the cost of the proposed solution. Homeowners insurance was of no help. Without an understanding of this concern, I found myself at the mercy of contractors, and was receiving a great deal of conflicting, confusing, and stress inducing information. This is when we found BE Structural online, and decided to pay for a structural engineering assessment. Through the process, Brenda at BE Structural was there to answer questions, provide guidance, and support. We were very pleased with the Engineer who came onsite, who spent a great deal of time studying the issue, and answering all of our questions.

Structural Inspections

A water main break collapsed the foundation of a rental property. The city of Harrisburg required me to have a structural engineer inspect both before and after repairs were made. I had no prior dealing with BE Structural prior to this. They have made every complicated step in this process as easy and fast and efficiently as possible–most particularly their project director, Brenda. She was always available and helpful for all my many questions and requests. This whole process could have been much more difficult. I would recommend this company without reservation

Structural Inspections

We were experiencing serious construction issues affecting my floors, after settling into a new construction condo. After the builder disagreed the issue was structural and scheduled a cosmetic fix inside my unit, I called on BE Structural for a professional opinion prior to having any work done. Brenda listened to the challenges I was having and scheduled the perfect engineer to assist me. Rob has been prompt, thorough and professional. After seeing Rob’s initial report, the builder agreed to bring out their manufacturer rep, contractors, the manufacturer engineer and others to properly assess the issues. They have since opened up construction under my unit and put in temporary measures to stop the structural issue from worsening, while determining the best course of action to complete the work. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I called on BE Structural. The fact that Brenda takes the time to listen and quickly coordinates the work, has been comforting.

Structural Analysis and Repairs

I was concerned that an addition put on my house several years ago was causing my house to sink. I received several estimates, some outrageous and most in the fair price range. I called BE Structural and spoke to Brenda. I was worried and upset about my house and Brenda was very helpful. BE sent out structural engineer David. He spent 2.5 hours thoroughly inspecting my entire house for evidence of structural damage including crawling into my VERY small crawl space to look at the foundation. The good news was that there was no damage. The peace of mind after I received the report was priceless.

Very friendly, easy to work with, completely professional. My project was quite unusual, but BE Structural took the time to understand my goals and needs, helped me to bring the design into compliance with my local building code.

Structural Inspections

They responded to the request very quickly. They took the time to determine the problem and to write up a report. All of our questions and concerns were answered. In addition, we were supplied a report to use when hiring someone to fix the problem. The only area for improvement would be a list of companies that they could connect us with to to help complete the job. We eventually found a company, but it took some more searching. All in all, we were very happy with their service.

John was on time, knowledgeable, and personable yet always professional. The inspection was done on Sat., March 9, and I received my report on the following Wed., March 13. I would definitely recommend BE Structural to family, friends and co-workers.

Structural Inspections

Due to an impending sale of my Philadelphia row home, I needed a structural engineer to do an inspection and report. I was also hoping to have this report done soon so that I could get the home totally ready. BE was not only prompt, they were thorough, friendly, helpful, and extremely easy to work with. All of my questions were quickly answered, and the entire BE staff seemed to know what I needed and when. Having dealt with contractors who don’t show up, who don’t provide complete information, or who aren’t clear about payment, BE was a breath of wonderful, fresh air. If I ever need similar work done again, they will have my business right away. Great, great service.

Structural Inspections

We had a cooling tower on our roof which was 38 years old. The I beam showed rust and there were different opinions as to will it fail or not if filled with water. I contacted Mr. Bruce Ensor at BE Structural PC. He advised us not to fill the tower. When the tower was removed to install the new one the steel base was almost totally rusted away. If this tower was filled it most certainly would have collapsed. Thank you Bruce Ensor.
