Testimonials

A quote from one of our soft story contractors:

I’ve done over 10 retrofit projects with FTF, and also many more with other engineers. FTF develops well-coordinated, well-detailed plans, which lets me bid a project tighter – I need less cushion for unknowns and delays. FTF is also very responsive during construction with site visits and answering questions. They are collaborative and creative when solving problems, which saves my crews time and headaches, and that is reflected in my bid too.

Some engineers over-engineer a project which drives up construction costs, or their plans are missing details which cause change orders and delays during construction.

If you want to minimize your construction costs, start by investing in a good engineer. FTF is, in my experience, among the best.
