We have professional engineering on staff here at Timber Systems.  They have years of experience focused exclusively on structural timber design.  Having in-house engineers allows our engineering and design teams to work side-by-side throughout the design process.  It also eliminates an extra layer of coordination when compared to companies that outsource all their engineering.  This close working relationship and flatter organizational structure improves our delivery time on engineering and design and reduces the number of contacts with which your project managers have to interface.
