why jacobson consulting engineers?

vast knowledge

We’re well versed and it shows

We have worked in most Puget Sound area jurisdictions and understand their unique intricacies including their permitting processes. By jumping in early and leading the site development permitting process, we can manage issues before they happen, ensuring the project starts and stays on schedule.

focus on efficiency

time is money

That’s why our staff is skilled in both design and drafting/modeling, eliminating unnecessary iterations of the typical engineer and drafter workflow. We collaborate with clients to ensure that all members of the team are fully in-the-know prior to embarking on all major design efforts, reducing the need for non-essential work. This efficiency saves our clients valuable time and money.

Unmatched experience

longevity matters

With over twenty years of experience working with both local and national architecture and development and construction firms, we are able to provide tailored service and attention to meet every firm’s unique needs and projects. Our experience shows and allows us to provide well thought-out, cost-efficient and complete site designs.

We have experience and success working in multiple project delivery types including Design/Low-Bid, GC/CM, and Design/Build. Our ability to leverage technology also sets us apart, as we are highly skilled in working in a 3D modeling environment. We continually collaborate and provide 3D information to our design and construction partners in Revit, Civil3Dand AutoCad3D platforms.

dedication to quality

quality is never an accident

It is always the result of intelligent effort. With an unwavering focus on excellence, we have a quality assurance process that we complete not only on our own drawings before permitting and construction, but also for the scope of work that overlaps and is intertwined with other design team members.

As part of our commitment to quality and desire to be at the top of our clients list of their preferred civil engineering consultants, we also place a large value and focus on our responsiveness and communications. Our clients always know exactly where the project stands—no second-guessing or feeling in the dark. They have direct access to the people performing the work. There are noexcessive communication layers,  for questions and collaborations, and we fill them in every step of the way.
