Whether you are thinking of building a cozy vacation spot, or you are ready to build your permanent dream home, you will want to consult Tobias & West. We were selected as the structural engineer for the 2013 HGTV Dream Home located on Kiawah Island, SC. This is because of our structural design experience with small to large residential structures for 15+ years. We have a thorough understanding of what hurricane-force winds, earthquakes, floods and erosion can do to a residence if the proper design isn’t implemented accurately.
Residences positioned on the coast must be designed for seismic forces and the wind and flood forces associated with hurricanes in order to meet the stringent requirements of the building codes. Our knowledge of the building codes and FEMA recommendations goes into every design to help you build a sound structure that will ensure your house will stand the test of time and protect you against the impending threats that may arise. In addition to our expertise, our team of engineers and draftsman enjoy working with architects and home owners to make their dream home become a reality.
