TITLE 24 CODE BREAKERS

Deja-vu all over again!

This July 1st was the deadline for plans to be submitted for plan checks before this new and much more stringent Title 24 code came into effect. It truly put our company's resources to the test, as I'm sure it did for many other engineering and architectural firms.

We were bombarded with phone calls, e-mails and personal appearances in our office from clients who wanted to make sure that their jobs beat the deadline for submittal. We had over 15 projects to finish at the same time! Our staff of 16 people worked and worked hard, but we delivered what we promised.

Now we can take a breather right?

Not really. The construction industry is really on the upswing from simple room extensions to second story additions to brand new single family residences to multi-family complexes, like apartment buildings and even condominiums. Although we don't have this pressing dead line to deal with, work abounds at all levels. We have 10 to 12 RFP's (request for proposals) every day for potential projects.

It feels like old times!

I want to thank all of our clients, some of them loyal to us for 35 plus years, for all the opportunities they're giving us to serve them and for considering us for their next job. Our company will do the best to keep their trust. As our motto says:
"We provide excellent structural engineering with Hungarian friendliness and personality, with German precision and effectiveness, and with the best Californian ingenuity, knowledge of the building code and timely service in the industry" Of course let's not forget about our wonderful staff, present and past alike, from all around the world, including but not limited to Japan, South Korea, Egypt, Iran, the Philippines, Romania, Russia, India, Pakistan, China, Mexico, Nicaragua, Vietnam and many more.
