Since our founding in 2015,

we have earned a reputation for engineering excellence by providing efficient, well-detailed and creative structural designs while sustaining a culture of collaboration and approachability. Maintaining positive, long-lasting relationships with our professional partners and building owners with a supportive, team-based approach, outside-the-box thinking and a “can-do” attitude has facilitated our success.
Primarily providing structural design services for custom single-family residences, including new construction, additions and alterations, and accessory structures, we also continue to add small multifamily, commercial and industrial projects to our growing portfolio.

About Owen

After graduating with a B.S. in Structural Engineering from UC San Diego in 2006, Owen worked for several small firms in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost nine years on a great variety of projects including new commercial and apartment buildings, seismic retrofits of mid-rise office buildings, tenant improvements and temporary structures. In 2012, Owen discovered a passion for the personal and straightforward character of single-family residential construction while working for a firm specializing in the design of high-end homes. In 2015, his now wife was offered a major opportunity for career advancement in Seattle; both having a great fondness for the intellectual culture and pristine natural environment of the Pacific Northwest, they jumped at the chance and haven’t looked back.

Owen founded O.G. Engineering upon his arrival with only a single referral to a local residential architecture firm. Since 2015, our business has grown almost entirely through an organic network of repeat clients and referrals. We are excited to continue to provide excellent engineering services for our existing partners and expand our offerings to new clientele for all project types.
