JR Engineering provides structural design services to clients in the home building industry who value effective coordination and communication combined with a structural design approach that focuses on reasonable options rather than prescribing architectural modifications to deal with structural problems. We concentrate our services in the production and custom home field to allow us to focus our efforts on meeting our client’s needs.
We provide structural engineering services for the following types or projects:
JR Engineering provides structural engineering services to the homebuilding industry that exceed expectations for service and quality while providing a fun work environment with high levels of individual satisfaction from knowing that all efforts directly impact the success of the firm.
We focus our efforts on working as part of the project team to communicate, solve problems, and address structural challenges with a design approach that provides reasonable options for managing risk rather than prescribing architectural modifications to deal with structural issues.
Our goal is to prepare a set of construction documents that meet the minimum requirements of the UBC, that conform with generally accepted standards of practice, and that meet the demands placed on them by occupants in critical areas (such as floor deflection).
It is also our goal to prepare a set of plans that will not be considered “over-engineered".
JR Structural Engineering Inc. was founded in 1999 by John R. ("JR") Ehlert. We opened an office in Danville in the Spring of 2000. In Spring of 2003 we moved into a new, modern office in Hacienda Business Park in Pleasanton.
Although our goal is to remain a small engineering firm, we have added staff to allow us to continue to provide timely engineering and field support for our clients in the home building industry.
