I had the pleasure of working with MMA on a remodel of a historic craftsmen in Palo Alto, California. Mike did a wonderful job of visiting the site and familiarizing himself with the existing conditions prior to beginning the structural design. Once work was under-way, the firms drawings and calculations were thorough, well organized and completed in a timely manner so that the project team could stick to a strict schedule. Mike was responsive and helpful as we navigated the increasingly complex permitting process with the City and his quick responses enabled us to obtain our permit in a timely manner. During construction, MMA was quick to respond to job-site queries and always provided any necessary drawing revisions/clarifications in a prompt manner, thereby enabling the team to stick to our construction schedule. 

The team at MMA was a pleasure to work with and I would be happy to use the firm for any future projects in the bay area.

Mike Mahmoudian and Associates has been my primary structural engineer since 1980.  Mike has a great understanding of the architectural design and goals.  He can work with any complicated designs and come up with brilliant and inexpensive solutions to complex designs.  He pays great attention to construction details which is evidenced by his drawings being detailed and accurate. He is always available for questions and problem solving during construction.  In my opinion, Mike Mahmoudian is by far one of the best engineers in the Bay Area.  I would highly recommend him for his commitment to service, quality and reliability.

I would like to let anyone interested in structural engineering services know that I would highly recommend Mike Mahmoudian & Associates. I have worked with them since 1991 and have found them to be very professional. Important to me is an engineer that understands aesthetics and will work with me to accomplish the client’s wishes. Mike is such an engineer.

Another issue is what happens during construction? There are changes at times. Mike Mahmoudian & Associates has been wonderful in working with the contractor and the architect to resolve the issue as expeditiously as possible.

 

I will continue to work with Mike and his staff as long as I am in business. Anyone interested in finding out more please contact me.

I have used Mike Mahmoudian and Associates on over 30 custom homes in the last 17 years.  Mike and his team routinely complete the engineering plans and calculations for our high-end projects in the named timeframe, and are always quick to respond to any field questions or inspection requests. Mike’s extensive background in all types of commercial and residential projects allows him to be able to think with a design problem and propose real and buildable options. Since I started working with Mike, I have made it a point to tell my clients that if they go with another engineer my fee will need to be higher, as past experience shows that not using Mike Mahmoudian and Associates means we will spend more time administering the project.

As an architect, I have worked with Mike Mahmoudian on a few projects over the last 7 years. He is a thoroughly professional gentleman, and delivers high-quality work before the deadline. He is very attentive to detail and endeavors to think outside the box to provide a custom solution that will fit and work well with my design, and one that will enhance both the architecture and structure of the project. He is very accessible to talk to and discuss the design at length, and extremely easy and pleasant to work with. I have recommended him highly to other colleagues in the field, and will continue to work with him.

After 25 years as a residential architect, it is easy for me to say that Mike Mahmoudian is my favorite structural engineer.  Mike engages in the design process as a partner with practical experience and technical expertise who is also eager to listen, consider options and work with all aspects of the design to come up with optimal solutions.  He is reliable, timely and efficient, both in terms of process and design.   I thoroughly enjoy working with Mike, as does every general contractor I know.  I even encourage my clients to meet him because he is thoughtful and articulate.  Mike is a superb engineer!

I have worked with MMA for about 10 years and have found Mike and Sandy to be very pleasant to work with, creative, sensible, responsive, and a good value for my clients.  Most of my projects are exposed structure and I appreciate that Mike and Sandy work with me to find creative solutions that not only function structurally but are integral parts of the architecture.  MMA also helps construction to progress smoothly by responding quickly to site issues with solutions that contractors find practical and help projects to stay on budget.

Mike Mahmoudian & Associates are a great structural engineering firm to work with, certainly one of the very best on the peninsula.  I've worked with Mike and Sandy for over 12 years and they help us consider alternate solutions; they pay close attention to the materials and aesthetics I am looking for. Mike will often suggest detail solutions I had not considered, innovative products, resources and even ideal general contractors.  I consider Mahmoudian & Associates to be accommodating, high-quality and even good friends!

My landscape architecture studio, Rainscape Design, developed a plan for the Masten-Ireland Residence in Atherton that included a grand staircase leading from a dining patio to a newly expanded pool deck. Mike Mahmoudian and Associates engineered the staircase design. When the project landscape contractor ran into some unforeseen difficulties bisecting an existing retaining wall with the new staircase, Mike visited the site and directed a simple and cost effective solution that pleased the client and resulted in the realization of our vision. Thanks again Mike for the great work!

Mike Mahmoudian and Associates engineered my design for a front entry parking pad and private stairway access for a hillside property in Sausalito. The design was complicated by fact that the project was entirely within the public right of way fronting the property. The sensitive engineering solution was accomplished with attention to my design as well as to the requirements of the Geotechnical Engineer and the City of Sausalito.

I would highly recommend Mike Mahmoudian and Associates to anyone requiring the services of a Structural Engineer. It was a pleasure to work with Mike for the duration of the project. I would highly recommend them for any project.

My firm, HLD Group Landscape Architecture, has had the fortunate opportunity to collaborate with Mike Mahmoudian and Associates on several construction projects in recent years. I have been overly impressed with Mike’s construction knowledge and general intuition in all phases of design, permit processing and construction administration. Mike and his staff always make themselves available, especially when short notice decisions are required. These timely responses are major keys to successful projects and prove MMA ultimately has his clients best interests in mind at all times. Additionally, as a design consultant and project team member it’s comforting to know other team members have your back, so to speak, which is the case when teamed up with MMA.

If you are entertaining thoughts of retaining the professional services of Mike Mahmoudian and Associates I hereby state it will be a sound decision on your part. If you appreciate a firm that provides great service, has superior knowledge in the construction industry and is a great design team member then I recommend you look no further and choose MMA as your Structural Engineer!

I’ve been working with Mike Mahmoudian & Assoc since 2006, and I must say that Mike is one of the most professional and detail oriented person that I’ve worked with. He does not use typical stuff and he customizes and designs each project individually. He is very cost efficient and doesn’t over kill the project, and reduces the owner’s cost by thousands of dollars. He is very detail oriented and his designs and plans are self explanatory. Each time I need him or have a question he is very easy to reach and responds in a timely manner. He is always available if problems arise and put the time to come to the job site and come up with an easy solution right away. I highly recommend Mike Mahmoudian and I could not be happier working with him.

We have been building designs and plan sets by Mike Mahmoudian and Associates for many years and have always found them to be complete and well documented. They take the time to document through your structural plans and details the conditions which drive the structural strategy. We have consistently found that the plan sets provided by Mike Mahmoudian and Associates are more complete and therefore easier to get approved and ultimately build than plan sets which come from other structural firms. We also appreciate the thorough approach they take to understand field conditions and creating designs which do not require structural changes during the project are never welcomed by the client.

Mike is an excellent  engineer.  As a builder, I have encountered many structural engineers and truthfully, non have lived up to Mike Mahmoudian.  His knowledge of the industry is all encompassing.  The services he provides are extremely professional and based on years of experience handling complex situations with ease.  Not to mention, he is simply a really nice guy.  He is always available to come out to a site and is not afraid to get dirty to properly understand  existing field conditions and challenges of remodeling.  He is quick to adapt to these dynamics and offer solutions on the fly.  This level of support is invaluable to a general contractor.  Over the years, I have even called Mike to lend an opinion on other projects, and he is always eager to help and returns calls personally and promptly, somewhat of a lost art.  Best Engineer in the Bay Area!!

From a custom home builder’s stand point. MMA has worked with me on a few projects. I would like to say that Mike is the best Structural Engineer that I have used in my 25 years of building.

What makes MMA the best in my eyes is their quick response time and the willingness to work with me on the issues at hand. The framing phase is when most of the structural changes happen. The quick response time that MMA has helps keep me on schedule.  Mike also doesn’t mind if I put my two cents to change a detail for in the field fixes.

All in all if I were building my own personal house. I would hire MMA.

About a decade ago I discovered the big difference between Mike Mahmoudian & Associates and other structural engineers; value.  By value I mean high quality work, delivered by some of the finest people I know, at a competitive price.  No surprises that make me say wow!  Just great work, that lets me wow my clients.  When I first started designing homes in 1995 I discovered three things that were going to be critical to my own success, 1) Work with great people, 2) Find vendors who are right sized for my business, 3) Only deliver quality.  As I tried and evaluated engineering firms I found that some were simply too big, too expensive or too difficult to communicate with, and others were too small to deliver work in a timely manner.  But the worst and most common problem was structural engineers who 'over-engineer' a project with no additional structural benefit, dramatically increasing costs.  I'm a designer, all I want to do is design beautiful homes, but in every case I kept finding structural engineering firms that were simply becoming something new for me to manage and worry about, when what I really needed was someone to do just the opposite and make my life easier.  Like Goldilocks and the Three Bears Mike Mahmoudian & Associates was a just right fit, not to big, not small, quality work priced right and delivered on time.  Mike Mahmoudian knows how to keep my projects tight to budget by making recommendations that achieve my design objectives, without a fight, at the lowest cost and always maintaining the highest standards for the structural integrity of my projects.

As a general contractor, we have seen many different architects and engineers which are not all created equal. When we see the stamp of Mike Mahmoudian & Associates on a plan we know we can trust the integrity of the drawings.  Complex projects require knowledgeable and responsive team members and Mike's team has continually been a great part of every project we have worked together on.  Every question is always quickly answered and Mike is very willing to visit the job in person as needed.  To put it simply, they handle both the initial design and in progress service very well.  I would not hesitate to trust Mike Mahmoudian designing my own home or any of my clients.  Their work is top tier.

I have worked with Mike and his firm for over 14 years, and would highly recommend him. Mike really knows wood frame construction and knows how to communicate technical details clearly to us and to the contractors. He has always been responsive to tight schedules, following up, calling back, and handling any site questions promptly. That is the reason we work with Mike exclusively on all of our residential work, and we could not be any happier with his services.
