For all my structural engineer needs...

I really lucked out in finding Pezhman and his team at
Rigid Frame Structural Engineers Inc. and Architects...

It was my first project as a contractor and I needed a structural engineer for the underpinning work. I needed somebody who knew his or her stuff inside out, who was very experienced in all the building code regulations, and the building inspection process, and of course someone whose pricing was super competitive...

Pezhman and his small team at Rigid Frame was exactly the building engineers I needed! Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, very accessible and his pricing was super competitive.

I was so impressed that I had him do all the structural engineered drawings for the entire project and some architectural drawings too.

He didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear, but he told me what I needed to hear and do in order to successfully accomplish my home building project and focused only on areas that mattered. No fluff!

I highly recommend Rigid Frame for any building project structural engineer needs. They're great!

Drawings for Load-Bearing Wall

After searching around for structural engineers to help with opening up a load-bearing wall, I decided to hire Rigid Frame. The first time I met Arvind and Pehzman, I knew I made the right choice. They were very knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. They provided drawings in a timely manner and always responded to my questions or concerns. They helped me navigate through the process - especially when dealing with the City Examiner in order to get the drawings approved. I would definitely use them again in the future or recommend them to anyone looking for structural engineers.

Drawing and permit for removal of first floor interior walls

Pezhman was professional and courteous from our first encounter. Took the time to answer all my questions. Very thorough site visit. Efficient turn around time for both structural drawing and for obtaining the city permit on my behalf. Reliable and easy to reach. Would highly recommend and I would use his service for my next reno project.

Thank you Nancy for taking your time to write a review for us and also for the great review. Your patient attitude toward the design process helped us to produce detailed drawings which helped City to process the permit fast and issued the permit within a week!
Looking forward to help you during construction through our construction company "Rigid Frame Builders"
All the best!

Architectural Drawings for Post & Beam

A load bearing post and beam had been removed from under our stairs which resulted in the stairs starting to lean. Pezhman & Arvin from Rigid Frame came to do an assessment and brainstormed solutions to minimize cost and maximize function. They completed the drawings for a new footing, post and beam within 2 weeks and we received the building permit from the City of Toronto within 1 business day of submitting our application. Great to work with all around!

Foundation Wall Re-inforcement

During what was supposed to be a simple basement reno, we discovered that one of our foundation walls was bowing. The options to reinforce the wall were complicated by the heating and AC ducting and electrical panel against the wall. After a poor experience with another structural engineer, we contacted Arvin to perform and initial site visit. He clearly explained to us our options, and was able to draw up a customized wall design that worked around all the ducting. We found a contractor to build the wall and Arvin inspected the progress at various stages. There were several complications during the construction that required Arvin's input, and we really appreciated that Arvin always made himself available for our phone calls and queries - sometimes several times a day. He was always very patient and took the time to provide detailed responses to our questions either by phone or email. We would recommend Arvin's services and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

Hi bgardent and W. Thank you very much for this amazing review and feedback. You are right! The project turned out to be complicated to some degree. Your project management skills made your project truly a success. Believe it or not I learned a lot from you. We always try to do our best to maintain open communication during the design and construction stage and we are glad to meet your expectations. I hope you can relax now after the long construction. All the best to you both!

Design of replacement porch and balcony

I have to rebuild a deck and porch on my property that is old and requires replacement. Pezhman was very professional and thorough in designing the plans for this project. He directly dealt with the City of Toronto in filling out all forms, applications etc needed to obtain the necessary permits to proceed with this project. In addition he did site visits, even speaking with the neighbours about this project as it is a semi-detached property. Would definitely recommend Pezhman and Rigid Frame Structural engineers, and I'm looking forward to working with him in the future.

Structural engineering

Pezhman and Arvin came by my house to look at a section of my floor that was sloping. They were professional, upfront about their fees, and honest (ie. they're not overselling you on services not required). I was very pleased with their service. I would definitely refer them and use them again.
