Addressing Challenges…. Providing Solutions

Who We Are

Structural Engineers

Forensic Experts

Plan Reviewers

Since 1986, San Diego-based SMR has been providing structural design services to a wide range of clients and projects. From the beginning, the vision of our founders was to provide innovative, cost-effective engineering solutions with excellence in quality of service and client satisfaction.

As structural engineers, we collaborate with architects, developers, and builders to achieve innovative structural designs using the latest methods of construction, materials, and technology.

The integration of structural engineering design services; access compliance, fire and life safety, and structural safety plan review services as well as forensic engineering services we believe is what makes our team unique giving us a multi-dimensional understanding of projects from the perspective of designers, builders, users, owners, insurers, and litigators.

And by utilizing the latest building information modeling (BIM) technology, we can achieve the highest degree of efficiency, accuracy and consistency in our drawings from conceptual massing to construction documents. As a result, we have earned a reputation as effective problem solvers for our ability to consistently provide innovative solutions to resolve potential conflicts in the design and/or construction of projects. 

“Mr. Rashti and his team of engineers listened to my concerns and knew that we were under pressure to address a wide range of challenges.  At every turn, the team addressed challenges with detailed and well thought out solutions and delivered to us in a timely manner.  On each occasion, the solution was creative and innovative and allowed us to save costs on the project.”
