How to Hire Top Structural Engineers

How to hire structural engineers

From drafting engineering drawings for new construction projects to performing a structural analysis of your property to determine if you can add a mezzanine, structural engineers are here to help. 

So how do you hire structural engineers? What follows are some tips for finding top structural engineers on Upwork.

How to shortlist structural engineering professionals

As you’re browsing available structural engineering consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Industry fit. You want a structural engineer who understands your industry so they can help you figure out how best to reach your target market. 
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., performing finite element analysis (FEA) on a 3D-model of your building with SolidWorks).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular structural engineer.

How to write an effective structural engineering job post

With a clear picture of your ideal structural engineer in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a contractor to know if they’re the right fit for the project. 

An effective structural engineering job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From engineering drawings to structural analyses, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries or engineering tools, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS FAQ

What is structural engineering? 

Structural engineering is a specialization within civil engineering that focuses on designing structures that can withstand environmental pressures and be safely used throughout their lifetime.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in structural engineering consultants:

  • Structural/civil/mechanical engineering
  • CAD (computer-aided design)
  • FEA
  • Related fields such as architecture and construction

Why hire structural engineers?

The trick to finding top structural engineers is to identify your needs. Is your goal to assess the structural integrity of a new building design by performing an FEA? Or do you need a structural engineer to survey an existing structure and recommend any renovations or repairs? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life. 

How much does it cost to hire a structural engineer?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced structural engineer may command higher fees but also work faster, have more specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their structural engineering more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
