"I have worked with the SI team on a number of successful projects. As the structural engineer of record, it is important to have experienced builders who communicate, understand, and execute the structural requirements on plans. These guys not only meet those expectations, but exceed it. I always rest comfortably knowing that the Sea Islands Builders team are constructing one of my projects."
