About Allen Designs
T. Willliam (Bill) Allen is one of the area's most respected structural engineers. In case you're not aware yet, structural engineers are a special breed. The education required is substantial, the testing beyond rigorous and the certifications very demanding. This results in only about 10% of the Civil Engineers registered in California are also registered Structural Engineers! But the advantages of working with a licensed structural engineer can take your project from a conglomeration of generic ideas, potential engineering conflicts and mismatched concepts and convert them into a flowing design where virtually every detail has been taken into account. The results ensure you a commercial edifice, new home or home renovation you can take pride in and can enjoy for decades to come.

What We Do:
At Allen Designs, we are committed to only producing the highest quality work. While the word "quality" gets tossed around a lot, Allen Designs takes its commitment to quality very seriously. When you work in 3D as we do, plans and details are clear and concise. Contractor misinterpretation is minimized. Contractors love this. It makes their jobs easier, reduces conflicts and saves everyone time and money.
Working in 3D, our calculations are complete and thorough. Each set of plans is customized to the project. There are very few "standard" details. This commitment to exactness delivers a two-fold benefit. Submitting such a detailed and thorough plans to the building official or reviewing agency, plan check and recheck times are reduced. Plans are ready for bid sooner. This saves time and thus money when an owner is already paying interest on a construction loan. Finally, since our plans are more thorough and tighter, this means bids are tighter (and lower) since the contractor must deal with fewer ambiguities.
Allen Designs uses a process called "calc and fit". This means all plans and details are drawn to scale, ensuring the engineering can actually be assembled in the field. If this sounds a bit unique, know that this is one of the many special processes that has made Allen Designs so successful and Bill Allen so respected. When things go together smoothly, everyone from the top down has an easier time on the job and the job gets done sooner by people who love working with the plans rather than struggling with the plans.
3D drawings. CAD specs. Time and money saved. Contractors and work crews who love the precision of what they're doing. The process and flow become almost seamless.
