We service a very diverse market including: single-family residential, multi-family, healthcare, education, hospitality, retail, office, industrial, airports, parking garages, casinos, infrastructure, tenant improvement, governmental & municipal facilities, religious, sports and recreation, and specialty engineering. GLR Engineers’ broad experience ensures that our clients are provided with a valuable product custom tailored to satisfy their needs. GLR Engineers is driven to provide excellent services for each and every project. We take pride in delivering constructible, reliable, and cost-friendly structural designs for our clients.

We offer structural engineering services for new building construction, existing building renovations, and many other specialized structural engineering services required to complete a construction project. Our services begin when our clients’ idea is conceived as we assist in pre-planning to determine feasibility, material selection, and overall direction of the project. Services provided to our clients continue through the permit, bid, and construction phases, and years after the project is complete. Regardless of the size of the project, our clients receive quality consulting and design services every step of the way.

With GLR Engineers, you can expect highly qualified, experienced, and licensed structural engineers to help your project succeed. Above all, we assure that a single engineer will be involved throughout the project’s duration from schematic design and continuing on until the project construction is complete.

"I have worked for years with the team at GLR Engineers on many projects. They have always been quick to respond and open to the best solution for a project. As a General Contractor, I have always felt comfortable bringing a suggestion to them knowing that if it is feasible, they will find a way to make it work. I consider GLR a team mate when they're brought on a project and not just the Project Engineer. Just when I think, 'they'll never answer their phone this late'...they do!"
