Engineering for Efficiency

Working alongside our Architects, SEI’s skilled team of Engineers begin their detailed work on the building site as well as the buildings systems. SEI’s Engineers are well versed in every state’s zoning and land use laws which ensures a smooth permitting process. Engineers ensure your project connects to all the utilities it needs and their design ensures clients will be able to access the site in the smoothest way possible. To see a sampling of our engineering work, click here
