Shoring Projects

When your project requires structural, civil and shoring engineering, FTF provides:

  • Single point of contact for architect and contractor
  • Design coordination by FTF reduces the architect’s work.
  • Integrated design leads to cost efficiencies.
  • Meetings and site visits by 1 company, not three

The results are less work for the architect, better coordination for the contractor, and cost savings for the owner.

What Our Clients are Saying

Here are two testimonials from clients who hired FTF for multiple scopes of work on their proejcts:

I have worked with FTF Engineering on two large and complicated single-family residential projects.

FTF has the unique ability to combine world class engineering and personalized service. They handled shoring design, civil and structural engineering. They managed complicated structural engineering with ease. There was zero doubt in my mind who I would turn to when my second project came along. FTF thinks outside of the box and proposes solutions that others would not even mention.

They are quite simply the most outstanding group of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with on a construction project, and continues to exceed my expectations at every turn. I am beyond grateful for their expertise, guidance and world class customer service.

Shoring Projects

From an architect working with FTF on a project where we provided structural, shoring, and guidance for temporary building shoring:

At a time when construction demand is at its highest, it is very hard to find a structural or civil firm that can devote proper time to a project and make sure everything is perfectly coordinated. FTF makes a great effort to go above and beyond what is expected of them – they get their work done efficiently and on time. Both structural and civil teams are diligent in their work and always make sure everything is detailed and properly coordinated with all teams.

Our architectural design has never been compromised by the structural aspects, as they are always able to find new ways to make the aesthetics work…

FTF is an exceptional company and it’s been a great pleasure working with them. I look forward to our future collaboration on many projects to come.

— Clarissa, Architect
