Turning Goals and Ideas into Reality

Engineer of Record Architectural Services

To ensure a project’s goals and ideas translate into the final building, it’s a good idea to invest in a quality Engineer of Record (EOR). McClure offers comprehensive EOR Architectural Services for documentation and coordination.

Our EOR services maintain the structural integrity of your project, consolidate all relevant files and keep any progress free from conflicts with building codes, safety issues or other concerns.

What Is an EOR?

An EOR ensures your building’s structural elements are correctly designed, manufactured and implemented into the overall construction project. All documents relevant to the structural integrity of a building will be drafted and reviewed, including drawings and internal reports. These documents must be given an official seal of approval by the EOR.

On some occasions, the EOR will directly supervise subordinates responsible for preparing and coordinating these documents. A professional EOR will compare these documents against applicable laws and building codes as well as industry standards for materials and manufacturing methods. Sometimes, construction itself is overseen by the EOR to confirm that all structural requirements are being met.

In many cases, the EOR will possess the authority to refuse the design or manufacturing of a component they feel will not meet your building’s structural requirements. This is beneficial for large, complex projects that may have multiple trades working together. An experienced EOR provides a stable point-of-accountability across all these teams, making sure they all have the info they need for internal consistency.

How to Pick the Right EOR

Choosing the right Engineer of Record is important enough to influence a project’s success. For the best results, you’ll also want an EOR with professional qualifications and a comprehensive body of knowledge. highly experienced and able to provide a visible portfolio of previous work. At minimum, your EOR should possess the following:

  • Relevant engineering degrees and certifications: a degree in structural or civil engineering will be appropriate. An EOR is also required to be licensed to operate within the relevant state.
  • Visible portfolio demonstrating body of work: a comprehensive portfolio of previous experience can highlight your EOR’s specific strengths. A quality engineer should be able to translate their experience into the current needs of your project.
  • Body of knowledge and technical skills: a diverse knowledge base will ensure your EOR can solve unique challenges that appearing during construction. They should also be aware of relevant building codes, permits and other legal concerns.
  • Attention to detail and communication skills: an EOR oversees a complex portion of the construction process. They will deal with many moving parts and internal communication relevant to structural components. Your EOR should demonstrate proficiency in coordinating these details between staff.
