"WJE's wealth of technical knowledge uniquely positions us to assist clients with their specialty design needs."

— Matthew Carlton, Principal and Unit Manager

WJE has considerable experience in the development of drawings and specifications for custom design configurations in the built world. When a structure or building component is unconventional or has specialty design needs, WJE collaborates with all project stakeholders—including the designers of record, suppliers, and construction teams—throughout the design process to ensure the proper integration of WJE solutions into the interrelated systems of the building.

WJE engineers and architects approach the design process in a holistic manner. WJE’s interdisciplinary team works closely with design professionals, property owners, and contractors in both the design development and construction documents phases to achieve better solutions that satisfy clients’ aesthetic and functional performance requirements.

Whether there are compatibility issues regarding the many interdependent systems, materials, and components that make up a building configuration or special design expertise is needed on a particular component of the overall design, WJE architects and engineers have the technical expertise and testing capabilities to design and implement complex systems for both new and existing construction.
