Pemberton Engineering Inc. was established in 2003 by Mark Pemberton in Davis California to better utilize his skills in both commercial and residential structural design. Mark’s desire to use his strength in math, science and art to create safe buildings, capable of standing the test of time, led him into structural engineering. That passion is the driving force behind Pemberton Engineering today.
The firm was founded to collaborate with architects, owners, and contractors to create quality structural systems that deliver the architectural vision, meet the budgetary constraints, and improve public safety. With that in mind, Pemberton Engineering is a small firm by design, offering the services of one of the most highly skilled, extraordinarily qualified structural engineers in the area. Mark has over 27 years of structural engineering experience and every project that the firm undertakes receives his hands-on experience with the assistance and input of a knowledgeable staff. The employees at Pemberton Engineering all have a passion for math, science, and architecture. They keep well versed in the current building codes and stay abreast of the latest changes in the industry; honing their skills to better fulfill their commitment to create lasting structures as part of a design team.
The benefits of the small firm approach are twofold:
1. Minimal overhead costs of a small firm afford the clients better and more competitive rates.
2. Every client’s project receives uniquely personalized attention, time, and care from a licensed structural engineer.
Close interaction and communication with the client allow the engineer to develop a design that fulfills the client’s vision for the project while providing the most cost-effective and buildable approach to construction.
These benefits have been well realized over the last two decades by clients who can attest to the value that Pemberton Engineering provides. Today, we have become the go-to firm for most of the architects in the Davis area. We specialize in various types of construction including custom homes, residential additions and remodels, commercial buildings, seismic retrofits of historic buildings, and much more.
We have developed an innovative approach to construction documents; providing a clear overall understanding of the structural layout and magnifying the critical connection details. We pride ourselves on the quality, clarity, and constructability of our structural drawings which eliminates most construction issues and is a major factor in our customer satisfaction.
