Real Life Building Engineering Support for Commercial and Residential buildings in the Midwest
Building engineering support can be a lifesaver to owners and managers. HOA boards need to rely on professional condo building engineering support to manage projects. Do you manage office buildings? Then you know commercial building engineering support can be essential to keeping tenants safe and buildings sound. Even homeowners can benefit from residential building engineering help.
Where do you find the best engineering company for your building?
It’s easy to feel like Goldilocks in the fairy tale. Some engineering firms are too big and impersonal. And others are too small. They lack the experience you need. You have to find the engineering firm that fits you “just right.”
The best building engineering company is one that focuses on you and your buildings. At Engineering Support Services, we make your success our mission. That starts with understanding the situation first-hand. To do this, we visit the site in-person whenever possible. We build detailed knowledge of your project BEFORE we send a proposal. That way you can rest assured the solutions and budget will be on-target.
We know the value of real-life experience.
The staff at ESS has more than 170 years of combined experience in construction, condo management and building engineering support. That means we know what it takes to develop solutions that work long-term. Our reports are straightforward, easy to understand and based on reality. You’ll avoid unnecessary delays, cost overruns and oversights. That’s because our recommendations are based on a deep understanding of the project and the process.
Client relationships matter to Engineering Support Services.
Another important part of our mission is building lasting relationships with our clients. One way we do that is through open and clear communication from proposal through project completion. Even after the project is complete, we continue our commitment to you. Your success is our success.
