Reviews in San Francisco for Installing Retaining Walls

ONE Design
5.0
Our first project with Erevan to design our front of the house stairs as the support structure had deteriorated. He was recommended by our contractor. He was very quick and responsive and got the job done.The second experience with Erevan was even better. We needed to build a retaining wall on a hill in our back yar. It was not going to be an easy experience. We started with interviewing contractors and meeting with their structural engineer. After several bad experiences with the structural engineers we called Erevan directly. He immediately came to our aid and designed the wall. He even worked with our very difficult soil engineer we selected and even volunteered to take some extra work just so we could use the soil engineer as little as possible and often ran inteference. We then had to part ways with our contractor when it looked like he was not going to pull through. We asked Erevan if he had any recommendations., Within the next day we had 2 contractors reviewing the project and interested in the work.The project started a few weeks ago and I can't say enough about how professional, competent and easy to work he is.I know he has also done work for a friend on a major remodel and had a great experience wiht him as well.

Excellent! I am so glad that we decided to go with Austin at Upright Engineering. Austin was a pleasure to work with. He seemed genuinely excited about our project. He found workarounds to achieve structural changes that others told us would be impossible. We took down several walls in our home, raised the ceiling and added large sliding doors and windows. He was knowledgeable about city requirements, responsive and very quick. He has since followed up to make sure the project is going smoothly and has worked with the contractor to address any questions he has had. We are so thankful to have found Austin- we highly recommend him!

I wish I had read the reviews on Yelp before consulting with BK Paul regarding a structural engineering report. He had reached out to me through an open inquiry on Angie's List. I was seeking estimates for a structural report, to which BK provided a price range over the phone, citing his hourly rates. He said a site visit would be required to provide a bid on the specific cost for my job. I agreed, and after his visit, I felt duped. He provided a written proposal no different than his phone estimate, specifically stating the hourly rates with a "expected" cost, including a line stating that the final price could be higher. HIs ultimate plan is to suck you in after you already lost $250 on his useless bid. I told him I expected an actual dollar amount with his bid when I paid him $250 for his visit. I was trying to budget the project. He failed to deliver an actual bid. And he refused to return my deposit. He acted confused and said he has never had anyone question him before. Then I saw here on Yelp that he was not only dishonest with his bid, but he's had the identical complaint before. He steadfastly refused to refund my money, preferring the cash over his reputation. I can only imagine how awful he would become if you hired him. Avoid this company.

I hired Design Everest to complete structural drawings for a new single family house in Oakland, CA. They were super responsive and lightning fast. I spoke directly with the engineer once and he seemed knowledgeable and friendly.

It went very well. They were prompt and did a very concise and detailed report. I was quite impressed with the price. I didn't think it was very much for what I needed from them.

Planning took awhile. We told him what we had available to spend on the remodel, he designed basically two different looks, one under our budget by adding a room to existing floor plan in an odd place, and one about $60,000 over budget requiring a complete remodel. After the plans were done, he told us about the second phase of the design, requiring more money and the need to use his structural engineer. We didn't feel like he explained the design cost and procedures very well to us at the start.

First there process of transmitting construction documents, getting a proposal and signing a contract was the easiest and smoothest i heave experienced. The principal engineer communicated well and finished the work in a very timely manor. Signed plans were delivered immediately. Excellent job.

They were absolutely wonderful to work with. They took all of the complexity out of the process and I plan to use them on all of my future needs.

SEZEN & MOON STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING, INC.
5.0
We used them and decided not to go forward with the project. The plan turned out to be too expensive. The job wasn't worth it. I thought they were good. However, one of the guys was hard to understand. I think they did their job and helped us out. One owner is very personable and helpful. However, the other owner needs to improve his English.

Upright Engineering
5.0
We talked with several engineers about the structural engineering work that we needed done on our house and decided to go with Austin at Upright Engineering because he seemed very knowledgeable, was able to work within our short timeline, and his estimate was very reasonable. He was incredibly professional, personable, and prompt with getting back to us throughout the entire process and followed through on everything in the scope of work we agreed upon. We would highly recommend his services!
