Bob Mason, Structural Engineer, Shares What Every Business Owner Needs to Know Before Hiring an Engineer

On a recent episode of Business Innovators Radio with Nina Hershberger, Architectural Engineer, Bob Mason, shared how his assessment and documentation process helps commercial building owners know the upcoming five to ten year capital improvements/repairs needed should they choose to buy a building or if they already own or manage a commercial building.

It doesn’t matter if the building is worth 100 thousand or 400 million, it is important to hire an experienced architectural engineer to do a thorough assessment. Key to Mason’s high rate of referrals from past customers is his written report that is written in language the owner or manager can understand with a specific timeline for needed repairs.

“Architectural Engineers often specialize. Some work on new build projects while I work on existing buildings”, explained Mason. “It’s critical to hire the right engineer for the job. It is also important that when the assessment is finished the building owner/manager gets a well thought out and written report.”

As the owner of a boutique engineering firm: Reliable Structural Engineers LLC, most of his clients come from referrals because they know when they hire Reliable Structural Engineers LLC, they’ll get Bob Mason himself rather than a junior engineer at a larger firm.

Focused on structural repair engineering for existing buildings, his client base includes city municipalities, as well as private sector clients such as Jones Lang LaSalle, C.B. Richard Ellis, Cushman Wakefield and many others.
