“Brent is a very intelligent and detail- oriented individual who collaborates well with our entire team to help us achieve our desired results - on schedule. It’s always a pleasure to work with him.”
- Jack Sample, Vice President and District Manager PCL Construction Services

“I have known Brent since 2004 and first hired him in 2006. Since then Insight S.E. is our first choice for Structural Engineers. Brent has the unusual combination of professionalism, knowledge and integrity. It’s been always a pleasure working with him even on the not so easy projects. He specially enjoys design challenges finding inventive structural solutions every time.

Another important issue is that Brent hires only very talented, hard working and service oriented engineers so we are confident that we’ll get the best service regardless of the team that it is assigned to our project.”

“It has been a pleasure working with you on so many projects. Your knowledge and experience with various structural systems has helped our design come up with both functional and creative projects.

As with many of our projects, construction costs and schedules are often driving factors during the design and construction phase. Your prompt response and solution oriented approach saved our clients valuable time and money and ultimately helped produce outstanding projects.

As a designer myself, it is often difficult to make sure that all of the structural systems not only function properly but also work in harmony with the overall design concept. Your attention to detail and concern for the design was critical during the coordination of all the other building systems. I look forward to working with you on our next project.”
