Structural Engineering Experts

For Residential & Commercial Projects

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.


In the early phases of your project, we bring the experience and knowledge required to make decisions that will head off future problems.


We have extensive knowledge of local permitting requirements from working closely with the local building departments for decades, and are intimately familiar with individual jurisdiction requirements. We work in 2D or BIM upon request to provide the highest quality construction documents.

Construction Administration

Whether responding to RFI’s, addressing inspector comments, or reviewing shop drawings, we always react quickly to planned or unforeseen issues during construction with timely and cost-effective solutions.

Custom Residential

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.

Production Builders

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.

Commercial Projects

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.

Structural Evaluations & Condition Assessments

We provide services for existing structures such as:

  • Renovation and addition assistance through signed and sealed letters or structural drawings as requested
  • Damage assessments and observations, with repair details for damaged structures including fire and water damage, construction defects, or other damage
  • Home warranty structural defect evaluation and recommendations for new homes, or existing homes undergoing real estate transactions
  • Forensic observations and investigations to determine cause and recommended repairs for structural issues
  • Site observations and structural opinion letters for conformance with structural design
