This is one of the best comment that I heard from you!  I am both working in 
design engineering and construction industry so I know what is happening.  If 
the contractor has no design engineering background then at least his 
superintendent, or project engineer, or project manager shall have design 
engineering experience.  Also, plan checkers shall all be registered engineer 
and all inspectors shall have design engineering experience in the discipline 
he is inspecting.
