Southern Consulting & Engineering has provided structural engineering services since 1999, including single-family custom homes, multi-story office buildings, and large multi-family developments. Our decades of experience in structural design for earthquakes, hurricanes, and high hazard flood zones will let you build with confidence.
While every project is unique in size and scope, we provide all with the same care and attention to detail.
We specialize in structural design of the most architecturally challenging custom homes throughout the Lowcountry. We will coordinate with our clients from design through construction to ensure that their dream home exceeds expectations.
Are you a production homebuilder about to begin a new development? We can deliver accurate, reasonable, comprehensive structural plans in either site-specific or multi-use form, to keep your builds running safely, efficiently, and on schedule. Our responsiveness and quick resolution to field issues will keep your projects running smoothly.
We provide structural design services for a broad range of commercial structures including office buildings, restaurants, multi-family, and retail. We have extensive experience in the complicated analyses required for irregularly shaped structures in high seismic regions, and stay up to date with the ever-changing building code requirements.
