Launched in 2002, Next Step Design introduced high standards to telecommunications projects for major carriers. Our Lake Forest-based firm continues to serve the structural engineering needs of telecommunications companies, and has branched out into commercial structures, amusement park attraction, seismic retrofits, and residential projects. We're entrusted by architects and general contractors who prefer a structural engineering firm that places their needs first, communicates effectively, monitors cost impacts during design, and works cooperatively to find solutions to design and construction issues. Next Step Design has earned an outstanding reputation among western designers and builders, but we are cautious not to overextend ourselves. When we sign a project, you can be confident that we will fulfill our professional commitment to you from start to finish.
