The American Red Cross has stated 80% of Americans haven’t realized that home fires are the single most common disaster across our nation, which presents a heavy concern for us all.

So to make it a point to do our due diligence as a well-respected civil engineer and licensed design professional, we are using our 30 years of expertise and immense experience with the Santa Rosa wildfire in 2018–– including our service in rebuilding Paradise, California after their wildfire––to assist in any way possible for those affected by these wildfires. We can assist homeowners and business owners alike to rebuild structures that’ll be in compliance, as well as safe for all who enter.
