One of my clients just called and said that Fareed Himmatti is fantastic. My client needed to replace the rickety 7 foot fence at his Bernal Heights home. He was told by the SF Building Dept. that they required engineering drawings that would certify the fence would withstand heavy winds. I recommended Fareed Himmatti. Fareed checked out the fence and instructed my client on how he could draw the plans himself and get it approved under current guidelines. Fareed refused payment for his advice, not even a service fee for driving all the way from Fremont CA! My client is thrilled and wanted me to spread the work that Fareed is great to work with!
If you need a structural engineer in the San Francisco Bay Area, I highly recommend Fareed Himmati of Himmati Engineering, 510-440-9602.
