TESTIMONIALS

“I have worked with SSF on both public and private commercial buildings. From new construction to historic preservation projects, they have become a critical asset to the success of our team. They are talented structural engineers, who understand the construction / design requirements of our clients and integrate them with the realities of the budget. They are extremely creative. I cannot give them a higher recommendation!"


Eric Cederstrand, President, Commencement Bay Development

“Ncompass Construction confidently relies on SSF to assist with projects of all sizes.  From calculating a simple beam replacement, to whole house structural details, the SSF team consistently provides us with great personal service and quick turn-around.”


Stefan Hansmire, Ncompass Construction

“I can’t say enough great things about Swenson Say Faget. Whether we need a simple beam sized, or a 10,000 SF home engineered, we love working with SSF. The engineers are all great communicators (which can be rare in this field), timely, and most importantly the designs make sense both for our aesthetic ideals and for the builders in the field.”


Michelle Linden, Principal, Atelier Drome Architecture, LLP

"The Engineers at Swenson Say Faget have been our structural problem-solvers for over two decades. When we have a complex design to create or simply want to enjoy collaborating with their kind, fun, and very experienced engineers, we call SSF!"


Tim James Rhodes, RA, AIA, Rhodes Architecture and Light

“We’ve worked with Swenson Say Faget for over twenty years and nothing’s fallen down yet!”


Mike Mora, Principal, Heliotrope Architects 

"Heliotrope has worked with Dan Say and Ryan Reichman almost exclusively for over 15 years now, and have watched them all lose their hair - while we’ve retained ours. We are huge fans of their professionalism and creativity - and they can do math!”


Joseph Herrin, AIA, Principal, Heliotrope Architects 

"Exceptional service, outside the box thinking, quick and accurate turn around time and most importantly, great people."


Mike Skidmore,  AIA, NCARB, Principal, Skidmore Janette Architects

"I’ve been working with SSF for over 15 years with 3 different companies, including my own. To me they’re a co-worker I can always depend on, and that peace of mind makes doing my job a whole lot easier!"


Dave Stave, Designer / Principal, William E Buchan Inc / Stave Drafting & Design

"Swenson Say Faget’s commitment to our community and the built environment is evidenced in their long-term leadership and support of many of our community organizations. They are engaged and creative partners of both AIA Seattle and Design in Public, and an integral part of our success."


Lisa Richmond, Executive Director, AIA Seattle

"In my 25 year career in Seattle I have probably completed 30-40 projects with SSF; I admit I’ve strayed a couple of times, but we have always come back for the consistency, pragmatism and collaborative spirit.  We have brought 'interesting' designs to the table a few times, which were always met with a can do spirit, along with a dose of well deserved wry wit.  I think I even raised Paul’s heart rate from 50 to 54 once, love that low drama in our structural engineer!"


Jeb Thornburg, Architect/Founder, Indigo Architecture & Interiors

"I value Ryan Reichman’s contributions, especially in the early stages of the design process because he thinks like an architect."


Paul S. Akiyama, Architect, Akiyama Architecture, LLC

"SSF's structural engineers are unflappable, careful, creative, and dedicated.  My structural engineer is my wingman, and I truly value SSF working beside me through design and construction.  Through our 15 years of collaboration, our teamwork has created solid designs and strong projects."


Jim Cary, Principal, Cardinal Architecture PC

“I never thought working with engineers could actually be fun until we connected with SSF!”


Terry Miller, Schultz | Miller

"Swenson Say Faget is a group of dynamic, innovative, and collaborative structural engineers. We have enjoyed the great fortune of working with them on a multitude of projects ranging from high end residential to parks to large structures. Not only are they phenomenal structural engineers, they are great fun to work with! I highly recommend them!"


Laurie J. Pfarr, P.E., LEED AP, CESCL, Principal/Owner, LPD Engineering, PLLC

“Swenson Say Faget’s engineers are great collaborators in crafting project-specific structural design and detailing solutions.”


Brad Miller, Principal, Miller Hayashi Architects

"We are only as good as those we work with.  SSF is the best and we value our partnership. Thanks for all you do."


Kevin Price, Creative Director/Lead Architect, JAS Design Build

"Working with SSF is fun, friendly and creative. The folks at SSF are always open to pursuit of the best idea for the project at hand."


Jonathan Hartung, Principal, SHKS Architects

"I have worked with SSF on projects large and small since they opened their office in 1995. Over the years they have grown considerably while I have continued to downsize. I get the same care and attention on projects that I always have. All the staff I have collaborated with have been professional, creative, and just fun to work with. I hear there are other structural engineers in town….but why?"


Bill Denny, Bill Denny Architect

"When we have a vision for a structure, I know that I can easily communicate it with the SSF team. Finding an engineer who is not only technically capable, but is also able to communicate the design concept through the skeleton of the building; that is a match made in heaven. They also know how to throw a good party!"


Alev Seymen, LEED AP, Project Associate, Board & Vellum

“We have been working with SSF since 1997. Our experience has been consistently positive. Our detail oriented residential projects require a high degree of interaction with engineers; we have found SSF to be engaging, timely and collegial. With this experience, we would not think of working with anyone else.”


Daniel Stettler, Principal, Stettler Design

"We’ve found SSF, and in particular, Brett Mozden, to be flexible, practical and creative. A pleasure to work with."


John DeForest, AIA, DeForest Architects

"I’ve never worked with a more collaborative, creative and thoughtful group of engineers."


Jay Janette, Principal, Skidmore Janette Architects

“As an advocate for historic preservation, working with Swenson Say Faget has been tremendous.  They understand the significance historic buildings hold for our collective memory and have a knack for designing solutions that retain a sense of the past and highlight character-defining elements while meeting contemporary building needs.”


Chris Moore, Executive Director, Washington Trust for Historic Preservation

"SSF is my first choice for structural engineering. What I most appreciate about SSF is that they are highly skilled engineers AND they understand construction, so their designs are straightforward, practical and economical. My clients love SSF because they can explain hard to understand concepts in clear language. As an architect, I find that they are sensitive to my design goals and work hard to make them happen.”


Sheri Olson, FAIA, Sheri Olson Architecture
