Why Use iAssociates?

iAssociates is an engineering firm providing distinct advantages including, but not limited to:


iAssociates is a small structural engineering firm with low operating costs. We can better afford to remain more involved with a project than a large firm with high operating costs. Without large overhead, our clients' money translates into more experienced professional structural engineering hours invested into their projects.


David Inlow, S.E. is the lead structural engineer and the principal of the firm. Being in both postions he responds to either business issues or technical issues often during the same meet. This streamlining effect produces a more rapid response to the Project's questions and concerns.

Structural Engineering Cost Control

Our experience has helped us to know what types of designs and systems are affordable and easy to build and which are not.

iAssociates works with contractors on integrating cost planning into the design phase of projects. Quantities can be shown within the Schematic Phase documents and from that point forward any changes in quantities can be accounted for. (See Partnering for Success).
