We provide all required structural information on the plans including beam sizes, floor framing, roof bracing, foundation layout and more, to give you the Code required support and performance that you need. We include all applicable details and Standard Notes for the builder to follow. The final plan is reviewed in-house to ensure accuracy and sealed by a Professional Engineer.
This is a structural design service for all structures being built in Mecklenburg County. We cover all structural items on the Mecklenburg County Plan Review Checklist to ensure your plan has all the required information and notes to pass Plan Review and get permitted. We have built a strong relationship with building officials over the years, and we definitely make the process easier and faster for everyone involved.
Pricing, like your project, is custom and there is no flat price that matches all projects. We base our pricing on size and complexity of the structure and the amount of information required.
Contact us directly for more information, or email your plan to Plans@IDEcharlotte.com, or bring your plan in and we will give you a proposal for our engineering services and estimated turnaround time.

“Great experience with this company. The engineer was fantastic. You can tell he really loves his work, and he was so helpful in coming up with designs that would work for us at a fair price. The person I spoke to when setting up the appointment was very helpful, too. They were quick to answer the phone, work with me on an appointment time, and call back after the calendar was sorted out. Thank you!!!”
