“RWS has worked with Cates Engineering for at least 10 years now and have appreciated working with them since day one. They always seem to take that extra step and extra time needed for coordination. As an HVAC engineer, coordination with structural is critical for a successful project. Cates always took the time to review the trade design with the structural design and provided feedback on any issues, and in some instances, noticed conflicts before we did. This is obviously very helpful to us and they certainly provide a level of effort beyond what we typically find in a structural engineering firm.”
~Michael O'Rourke, RW Sullivan Engineering
