Bell Design provides comprehensive commercial and private structural design services with over two decades of regional, municipal, and federal experience.

Our structural work includes design, analysis, and/or plan reviews for homes, commercial buildings, retaining walls, manufacturing facilities, retail sites, footings, foundations, beams, decks, additions, or remodels.

Because our name and reputation are on the line with every project we complete and with every client with whom we interact, we make every effort to ensure that our work is done accurately and cost effectively. A project plan is detailed for all projects and includes a scope of work and schedule.

The draft plan is reviewed with the client to ensure that we are in agreement with the client as to the level of work to be completed and the timeliness thereof, providing an opportunity for both BDC and the client to identify project milestones and objectives and possible cost control methods for each project.

In our experience, every building project requires different engineering principles, design methodology, and equipment in order to meet the project's individual goals; BDC offers the years of professional experience it takes in order to provide this unique and customized design procedure.

We can provide collected data in numerous formats ranging from paper maps to electronic PDF’s, as well as CAD and GIS formats.
