Bay area residential construction costs range from about 250-350 / sq.ft for a custom home.

If you can get 1% of that for structural design up to permit acquisition, you have some good clients.

Heck, sometimes I can't even find engineers that'll work for $0.25 or even $0.30/sf, particularly if they notice the steel moment frames before they agree to the subcontract...

Are you saying you can find a Structural Engineer who will engineer a 5000ft
