Default Professional Engineer Recommendations

We are looking for recommendations of a Professional Engineer to evaluate, design, and issue a stamped plan for a new structural beam to replace an existing wall that we may remove. It is a fairly simple project...we plan to remove a load bearing wall and put up a structural beam. But we know the town will require an engineer analysis and we want to make sure the correct beam is selected based on loadings. An engineer locally that can work with a homeowner would be most desirable. Project location is in Moultonborough.

I believe Cohen Steel in Concord offers this service as they did it for me years ago in a prior home. They will also sell you the beam required cheaper than any place else around.

Good luck!

your contractor should know that we have an engineer in Middleton Lumber that can provide spec sheets for the building inspector we have done two of these projects this year both in basements eliminating lolly colums. good luck hope this helps

Since I think we will need a steel beam....due to length as well as height limitations, Middleton may not be interested as I suspect they may be only interestedin wood glulam type beams. Will stop in and check them later this week. Called Cohen based on prior response, but they do not do this anymore and had no recommendations. As a result, we are still looking for suggestions.
