Why Us

If you are looking for a low-cost engineering firm to provide a piece of paper that satisfies a box on a checklist, or for someone to rubber stamp drawings for a project which was not engineered, then we are not for you.  However, if you are looking for a meaningful review or design from an experienced engineering professional who is dedicated to providing quality services, then we would be happy to assist you with your project.

At Cascade Crest Consulting Engineers, we strive to understand the project at hand, provide quality evaluation and design services, and effectively communicate our findings and solutions to our clients.
