Prompt & Professional

Jomar Manzano was the engineer on my 60's bungalow reno - he worked with architectural plans to create structural drawings, and submitted all for permits.

Working with Jomar was such an enjoyable experience - he is very patient & personable, and I appreciate that he took time to explain all structural aspects of the space in a way that a non-engineer would understand.

Due to Jomar's prompt and professional service - the building permits were approved rapidly, and without any issues. I would highly recommend Jomar and KH Davis for your building project.

Underpinning basement - Structural Drawings & Dependable Team

We've had the pleasure of working with Ken, Jomar and team on our structural drawings for underpinning our basement. They are very professional, prompt with their communication and due to their diligence, we were able to get our building permits approved quickly. We would work with Ken and Jomar at KH Davis again on any other project and recommend anyone looking for a dependable team!

Engineering and Permitting Services

I am a general contractor and have been using KH Davis for our structural engineering and permitting. I can't say enough good things about my experience with the company and my engineer, Jomar, who is very thorough, knowledgeable and quickly available whenever we've needed to make a change or further clarification on something. I would happily recommend KH Davis to anyone.

Structural Beam

We contacted Ken for an assessment and evaluation for a structural issue in our basement. Ken came out and reviewed our situation and developed an in-depth and detailed report. Ken was available to help along the way with any questions that we had even after the his report was given to us and he responded quickly. I highly recommend K H Davis for any of your structural issues.

Sound Practical Advice

I contacted Ken regarding a minor structural modification I was contemplating as part of a kitchen remodel. Ken immediately understood what I was trying to accomplish and offered sound practical advice on how I could achieve the desired outcome on my own.

Pleasantly Surprised at Courtesy and Knowledge

I was referred to KH Davis by another contractor and spoke to Kevin who patiently and graciously listened to the issue I was facing in my house. He offered some advice on how to tackle it myself.
I've had difficulty in getting straight answers on occasion from different sources so was so pleased and surprised. When I checked their site, the comments of others confirmed I'd spoken to the right company, and the right professional in Kevin. Thanks so much - I'll be referring this firm and Kevin to others who need building alterations.

Structural Renovation Consultation

After gutting our property to the joists we called Ken to review the property and ensure the joists could support the intended subfloor, drywall, and finishings, as well as the proposed cathedral ceiling with insulation and drywall.

Our experience with Ken was excellent. At the site visit, Ken gave us an overview of how best to proceed and he followed up with a detailed report.

Thanks Ken - much appreciated.

Structural engineering

The firm is terrific. Expertise and reasonable turnaround. I would highly recommend them. They were able to show which walls were structural and which were not.

Thanks very much Paul, call us if you need an engineer to review structural walls in a condo again in the future. As long as we can get hold of the base building drawings from the property management office, it is often a fairly straightforward task. See you next time!
