The Difference:


Because of his attention to detail and completeness, you can be sure that

the structural design will always be in harmony with the architectural  requirements.  Services are customized to meet the needs and demands of the client, taking into account budgets, schedules and other constraints.  JMWA will provide plans that are accurate and complete.  They are willing  to prepare project shop drawings (when contracted to do so), which will expedite even the tightest construction schedule. Creative structural solutions by JMWA are unique in that they are typically the most simple and cost effective.  They are also willing to consider alternate solutions presented by the builder, hence the term, “builder-friendly.”  The above, coupled with in-house value engineering has saved owners millions of dollars in construction costs as well as maintenance costs over the yearsIn addition, your schedule is as important to us as it is to you.  Now you can begin to see how JMWA differs from all the other firms, and why they are the structural engineers of choice. 


JMWA’s not only selling structural engineering, they are selling reliable service and profitable professional relationships.
