We are truly humbled by the kind words of our clients.

“I have worked with Palmer Engineering for nearly 30 years and there is a reason I have continued to have a close working relationship with the firm. Unlike many engineering consultants, the firm, and in particular Baku Patel, has proved willing to explore creative, but practical approaches to design challenges. Baku is someone I enjoy collaborating with as a partner in the process. He has a special ability to understand and appreciate the design intent. His knowledge of structural systems, construction methods and relative costs is an invaluable resource for making critical decisions on how we can best achieve our goals as an architectural design firm.”
Markham Smith: Founding Partner – Smith Dalia Architects, GA

“We’ve worked with Palmer Engineering Company for most of our firm’s history and I’ve worked with them personally for the past fifteen years.  Baku, Eric, and their team have a collective expertise that spans multiple markets and rivals that of much larger firms.  And while that broad knowledge base is critical to our practice, we value them just as much for something quite the opposite—their flexibility, responsiveness, and creative problem-solving make each project feel customized in both design and experience, for us as well as our clients.  That’s a difficult combination to beat.”
Greg Cross: Principal – Smith Dalia Architects, GA

PEC tackles each project with the utmost sincerity and professionalism. When Baku takes on a project, it is because he is enthusiastic about it. That enthusiasm shows in their high quality of work and rapid response. When working with Palmer Engineering, expect a lot of communication and questions because they care that their solutions work holistically within the architectural framework and building systems. It is important to have a strong project team no matter the project, and I can always count on PEC.

“When our projects require structural expertise for historic buildings, we look to Palmer. We know that we can count on Palmer to not only bring to the project their substantive knowledge of historic structures, but to also provide outstanding client service. They follow through with what they promise and do it exceptionally well.”
Susan Turner: Principal, Lord Aeck Sargent, GA

“A Structural Engineering Firm that is exceptional in providing solutions for our projects. They are unique because they are adaptive to our requirements and schedule. Sometimes we require full structural design documentation and in other instances we require a forensic review of an existing condition or a mark-up of details. Palmer Engineering serves all of these varying requests in an expedited manner with a thorough review that includes a dialogue of means and methods for the best solution for the General Contactor to execute for the schedule and budget.

As Wilson & Dawson, Architects work also includes Historic Renovation/Rehabilitation we certainly appreciate and recommend Baku Patel and Palmer Engineering based on their previous exceptional support of these projects. Their experience and expertise are greater than computer structural models. Palmer Engineering provide the work on difficult hybrid structural conditions including mass masonry bearing walls, wood beams and columns structural frames and infill supports. Their efforts establish a full understanding of the systems and the design loads. They then overlay new code requirements and finally but “greatest” provide corrections that are the best suited to the project.

We have enjoyed a successful relationship with Palmer Engineering for many years. Baku Patel is both a friend and a colleague in all of shared endeavors. We will continue to pursue this working relationship to the benefit of our clients.”
