Remote Structural Designer

2 Replies

I am a structural designer-CAD drafter able to complete permit drawings and design structures (elevated slabs, driveways, residential additions, decks [steel and wood]). I'm now working remotely. How can bigger pockets help me connect with people that need my services?

I'm curious, why would anyone hire a remote contractor for things that require exact measurements ? I've seen too many projects go wrong because an onsite visit for measurements was either not done or not done properly.

A structural designer is not a replacement for a framing contractor but a supplement to a team of contractors. A good designer can optimize performance and value of the materials used in a structure. Some projects need a solid concept/design for the contractors to quote. Others may need creative approaches (combining steel and wood). I have experience in designing using sawn cut lumber, ewp, and steel. I can do simple projects, but my true value comes with the more complex projects.
