“We have worked with the principals of SMBH for nearly 25 years and have found their professionalism to be consistent and dependable. Their practical analysis of structural systems has always lead to economical yet solid design solutions for our clients. The thorough detailing and coordination with both architectural and other engineering disciplines produces complete, easy to understand documents, which in turn results in low change orders. The new personnel now being introduced into our projects to assist the principals bring this same dedication to their work. This consistency has been the determining factor in maintaining this positive relationship for so many years.”
