Taylor Structural Engineers, Inc. was established in February 1996 by Dirk Taylor, P.E. with the goal of providing high quality structural engineering services to architects, contractors, and owners working in the commercial, institutional, and light industrial building sectors.  Our success is built on client referrals and repeat business, and we feel that our strong client loyalty is a direct result of the consistent service that we provide on every project, as well as the overall construction cost savings that result from our practical and efficient structural designs.

TSE maintains a professional staff with expertise in virtually all types of building construction including steel (conventional, composite, and light-gage), concrete (cast-in-place, precast, and post-tensioned), reinforced masonry, wood (dimensional lumber, heavy timber, and engineered wood products), deep foundations (drilled piers, auger-cast piles, driven piles, pin piles, and soil improvement), and the restoration of deteriorated and historic structures.  This experience allows us to offer creative solutions to complex structural challenges.
