About Us

Chris Cox

Chief Consultant, Development & Planning at BeGreenLegal Cannabis Consulting

“S3DA contacted me through LinkedIn and while I am usually skeptical of cold messages, I was in need of an MEP engineer so I thought I would give them a shot. After more than a year of working on several projects with their team, I have found them to be responsive, reasonable with timelines and budgets, and willing to stand behind their work. While there are many good engineers out there, S3DA’s customer service stands out as a valuable resource.”

Joe Serrano

CEO/Exec. Director at TentMakers Inc./ReCycled Housing

S3DA Design is a very critical engineering partner for us and our clients because of their attention to detail and professional relationship building skills. They have a very sincere concern for the quality of their work and satisfaction of their clients. Our company provides residential design services requiring the services of a professional structural engineering firm. We have worked with other engineering firms in the past, but S3DA Design has out performed all competitors on several fronts including pricing. But more importantly, it is S3DA’s relationship building and communication skills that have impressed me the most. They sincerely care about the quality of their work and the satisfaction of their clients. I highly recommend them and their work.
