To us, Engineers are the “Crazy Police”.
Engineering is the super-exciting glamorous part of what we do!
A vast majority of our projects require some sort of engineering. It might be structural, mechanical or electrical. They calculate worst case scenarios for each element where structural integrity of the element or scope impacts safety, functionality and reliability.
They ask themselves important questions such as -
“Can it stand up?”
“Will it still be standing after a wind storm or earthquake?”
“Are you guys crazy?”
Do you REALLY expect me to stamp these drawings?
Once they are satisfied that they have all of the answers, they will stamp the drawings to certify that the design meets the codes and regulations for the area in which it will be installed
