    What To Look For When Hiring A Structural Engineer?

    Hello guys,


    I've chosen not to build a new garage on the rear of my property, but rather to improve my old attached garage. I intend to convert a two-car garage into a one-car "workshop," as well as construct a new parking area adjacent to the home with a lean-to over it for covered parking.


    One of the most important things I need to accomplish is vault the garage ceiling so that I can utilize my scissor lift. I will also request that the engineer offer designs for vaulting our first floor ceilings, since my wife and I intend to open up that area in the near future.




    Question is, what should I look for in an engineer?

    Depending on location - probably a current licensed Professional Engineer with solid references.
    Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

    I live in Draper, Utah and I found this company near me, REMOVED which they have a service for high-end custom homes. Do you think they are good?
