Structural Engineering services

I have worked with Arvin and Pezhman from Rigid Frame Structural Engineers Inc. on several residential projects over the past year. Every single project has been a great experience. They make everything in their structural designs very clear to understand and are readily available to help by phone, email or in person if their are any questions or changes required. They are also very good at delivering on time and giving you timelines that allow you to effectively work off of and plan from. I would highly recommend you give these guys a try for your next project.

Thanks guys for providing an excellent service.

Site Visit and Drawings

Arvin and Pezhman were able to come out to the renovation site quickly and were thorough in their assessment of the work recommended to be completed. They ensured I understood the work required and provided the drawings within their promised time frame and agreed upon cost. They responded to phone calls and emails in a timely manner. I would definitely use their services again and highly recommend them.

engineer drawings

After doing a lot of research to find an engineer, I was so pleased with Pezhman's work. He was very thorough and knowledgeable. He is a great communicator. He took the time to answer all of my questions. He is honest, reliable and a very skilled engineer! My drawings were accepted as submitted to the city without any followup needed with the city. I would recommend Rigid Frames any day!

New House Re-build

Our home was destroyed by a fire. Pezhman and Arvin were quick and efficient with supplying us with the a scope and reasonable estimate. The process for obtaining a permit is complicated and slow. Rigid Frames provided the architectural drawings and structural drawings which needed to be revised several times. They met all deadlines as promised.

I am great full for their professionalism and expertise. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing architectural, structural or help with the building of their home.

Full Architectural and Structural drawings for Permit and constrcution

I hired Rigid Frame to provide me a complete permit drawings (architectural, structural , etc.) to be submitted to the City . I got my permit in the estimated timeline. The project was an extensive renovation and extension of my split style home. Pezhman and Arvin patiently answered all my questions and provided me with all my wish lists. The construction is now on-going and I am retaining Rigid Frame for the complete project management. I recommend Rigid Frame without any reservations.

Load bearing wall removal/LVL Beams installation

We hired Arvin and Pezman to provide us with structural drawings for a removal of a load bearing wall and installation of LVL beams in its place.

Arvin and Pezman did a site visit, measured up the place and few days later provided the drawing package with the recommended LVL beams.

My working experience with this company was excellent, they were straight forward, answered all my questions and met all my criteria.

I recommend this company!

Removal of Two Major Load Bearing Walls for Creatinh Open Concept In Our House

In order to create an open concept in our house, we had decided to remove two load bearing walls which were perpendicular to each other and were holding the total load of the second floor and the roof. Also, we did not wish to have any supporting posts in the middle, which would lose the aesthetic look of the open concept.
Before starting the project, we met with a number of contractors and were told by many of them that this was a complex project and recommended posts in the middle of the open space for support. We were also warned by some that the required 20 feet steel beams will be too heavy (over a 1000 Lb.) for this project. So, I contacted four different structural engineers before decided to go with Rigid Frame Structural Engineers. On the first phone conversation, Pezhman explained each step of the process, including pricing for each stage as well as the required timeframe. As I am particular in analyzing quotations, it was obvious that their pricing was very competitive for the scope of work they were performing for our project.
Pezhman and Arvin showed up to each scheduled site visit on time, their scheduling for each stage of the project was precise. The structural drawing was completed within the timeframe they had promised and when it was submitted to the city for permit; the city did not raise a single concern before the permit was approved.
During the construction phase, every time I had a question or concern about the contractors work, I called Pezhman /Arvin and they both either got in touch with the contractor to resolve the particular issue or showed up at the site to assist with the situation. The contractor was also very happy with the work of Pezhman/Arvin as he mentioned in the past 25 years he had never seen such proactive engineers.
Overall, no matter how complex your project is, we highly recommend Rigid Frame Structural Engineers services. We got very lucky for selecting the right structural engineers for our project.
Thank you Pezhman and Arvin.

Open Concept Kitchen

To create my dream kitchen, I wanted to tear down the wall between the small existing kitchen and the formal dining room. Only problem is that I wasn't sure if the wall was load bearing, which meant I needed to find a structural engineer.

I contacted Pezhaman from Rigid Frame and was able to set up an appointment quickly for him to assess the situation. He and his partner Arvin arrived on time at the home to assess the situation. They were very thorough in their review of the structure, took pictures and explained the situation in easy to understand language, My requested report was provided to me on the agreed to date and Pezhman followed up with me to make sure everything was in order.

I highly recommend this duo!

Dance Studio needing city permit

So Happy with Rigid Frames service and people!!
Myself and my wife are opening a new dance studio in Pickering (Prodigy Dance and Performing Arts) and with the studio being in a retail plaza the city required an engineers drawing of the work being done. My contractor recommended Arvin with Rigid Frame and I am so glad he did! Both Arvin and Pezhman are very friendly, courteous people that truly went above and beyond for what they had charged us. Perfectly detailed, accurate drawings were presented to us in a very timely fashion! When the city had asked us for a separate drawing for another of their concerns (after the permit was already issued) BOTH Arvin and Pezhman came to the studio, did the work required and presented us a new drawing that satisfied the city within a few hours. Thank you both for the great service, I wish you the best!
