Structural Engineering Contractor in Pittsburgh, PA



Our main involvement in the construction industry is residential renovation and structural house safety inspections. We work with the real estate and claims adjustment agencies involving foreclosures, fire and/or climatic damage. Residential renovations are done using modern applicable safe code design methods. We work with the highest degree of empathy for the public in today’s trying times. We guide clients throughout the entire process, from sign up to sign off. We find more economical ways to solve the problem and the purse in an honest, ethical and simple fashion. JL & A is qualified for all types of residential structures, be they modular, prefab or standard construction. Our concern during the design and/or construction is integrating excellence with economics, honesty, and quality in order to provide total commitment to our clients.

In addition to residential work, we also partake in commercial and industrial structural engineering. To elaborate a little on our experience, we have converted ordinary palatial residences into open floor plan, meet and greet, wine and dine social gathering halls. We have also converted multi-story residences into single story American Legion halls, bowling alleys, and places of worship. So if you are starting a business and opening up a storefront, or simply remodeling, we can facilitate your commercial and industrial structural engineering needs. As approved Better Business Bureau (BBB) members, we strive to meet their qualifications in every way beneficial to all involved.
