We are…

Open-minded in our approach + thinking

Yes, sometimes even engineers are creative and flexible! We believe there is more than one way to solve any challenge.

Approachable thought leaders WITH diverse experience

We live to make all projects successful and tight deadlines happen.

Tirelessly collaborative

Whether it be in partnership with architects, developers, contractors, or direct to clients . . . seamless teams make projects work.

Devoted to accuracy

Expect accurate calculations, and a focus on structures that maintain design integrity.

Schaefer has at least one engineer licensed in every state plus Puerto Rico and you’ll find examples of our innovative structural projects of varying sizes, complexity and materials throughout the United States. We are known for our creativity, broad experience and detailed construction documents. Our clients partner with us for our collaborative structural engineering services: planning, design, inspection, investigation.
