THE DL ENGINEERING Inc. PROCESS
Step 1: An owner has a structural concern or foundation question and contacts DL Engineering Inc. for a structural review. We visit the property and conduct a site observation.
Step 2: DL Engineering Inc. provides a letter documenting the current condition and if mitigation measures are recommended.
You will receive:
- On-site visit and verbal consultation
- The Basic Observation Letter:
- Description of the current condition of the property
- Recommendations to stabilize or repair the structure. The recommendations can be used to develop a scope of work with the owner’s general contractors and/or repair companies to establish a budget. (DL Engineering Inc. is happy to provide referrals of foundation repair companies.)
Step 1: The owner decides on a scope of work based on their desired results and budget.
Step 2: DL Engineering Inc. will provide the necessary construction documents to you and the repair company (if you have chosen one) prior to construction. The contractor should be able to provide the owner with a final price and contract based on the construction documents. The construction documents are a required part of the permitted package. They are drafted and approved by a licensed engineer and are a project-specific plan to complete the foundation repairs at your property.
Step 3: The construction company should obtain a building permit from the municipality that the project is located in. They should also be licensed in the jurisdiction of the project and insured.
DL Engineering Inc. will provide:
- Detailed construction documents by a licensed structural engineer. This includes detailed drawings that the construction company must file to receive permits. These must be completed and stamped by a licensed engineer.
Step 1: During the installation of the repairs, DL Engineering Inc. will review the underground work completed by the foundation repair company. After this, we will document the site visit and observation in a letter confirming the repairs were done according to plan or any changes that were observed.
Step 2: The construction company completes the work and submits the documents to the permitting municipality to close the building permit.
DL Engineering Inc. will provide:
- End of project site visit
- Signed closeout letter stating the construction was completed to specs
Note: Engineering services are billed by DL Engineering Inc. and are independent from the construction company’s fees. We maintain an unbiased perspective in our recommendations and evaluations.
