Client Testimonials:

“Completing the permit process for the DC area is a momentous task; having Shawn on our team makes life easier. He is quick to understand the project and graph all the proper documents with the highest quality. Our focus on solar panel installations for commercial businesses is a specialized field and Shawn’s knowledge is a great asset to our operation.”

– Kate Heidinger, Skyline Innovations

“Shawn was incredibly responsive to Cambridge and our specialized and unique products. He took the time to become familiar with architectural mesh’s intricate designs, expanding his capabilities as Cambridge’s needs evolved. Shawn’s professionalism and high level of customer service has fostered our seamless and successful relationship.”

– Tom Costello, Cambridge Architectural

“Shawn provided full support on residential projects from original design concept to final frame walk. His integrity and openness to analyzing the engineering challenges resulted in practical and constructable designs that safely and fully addressed the situation without overspending.”

– Mike Walker, Pulte Homes

“I have worked with Shawn for the past few years on numerous residential projects, all of which have been more complicated than the typical residential home. He has been very easy to work with and has always gotten the job done in a prompt and professional manner. The one thing I like most about Shawn is that he not only has a solid understanding of structural engineering principles, but also of how all the various components that comprise new home construction are related to one another. This substantially facilitates the process of solving the various challenges which come up during the design process of a new home.”

– Kenneth Freyberger, Sunline Custom Homes

“Given the difficulty of building within the given city requirements of set backs and height limitations, with MSEG’s help, we were able to obtain our maximum square footage and include all the amenities the client desired. The project was executed efficiently, and all parties (including City and client) are extremely happy with the finished product. I am very much looking forward to working with Moment Structural Engineering Group again in the future.”

-Greg Bonano, Proficio Development

“I appreciated all that Shawn brought to the home remodeling projects we worked on. He was very knowledgeable as to the existing home construction and he made comments like, “I bet they framed the house this way,” even before he went out to the site. In both cases, he was absolutely correct.

He made sure his work was completed within the time schedule and his proactive, diligent questions and investigations of the existing building always made me work harder to get him the complete structural picture of the building.”
