From Our Website

A-1 Engineering, LLC was formed in 2011 with the vision of providing Texans with non-biased and objective engineering services for their everyday projects and building inquiries. We recognized that the common property owner needed better information to help them with managing their properties. As we have grown, so have our services. Understanding that drainage issues were having a significant impact to the performance of our clients properties, we added a civil drainage engineer to our team. Together, the civil and structural engineers collaborate on providing a more comprehensive assessment on factors that can be causing issues with your foundation.

We believe that a property owner that is better informed and insightful in the performance of their buildings will better preserve the livability of their buildings for generations to come. A-1 Engineering, LLC was founded in 2011 with the focus of helping Texans better understand and manage their buildings. Since then, we have helped thousands of property owners, from commercial properties, multi-family to our next door neighbors. Our expertise extends to engineering commercial buildings, industrial structures, institutional buildings, residential buildings, retaining walls, swimming pools, tanks, cranes, solar panel framing systems, foundations for large structures, carports to sheds.

Foundations are designed to move and they certaintly do. The difference in how much a foundation moves is dependant on how water is controlled around the foundation. Too much water, foundations move up. Not enough, foundations move down. Property owners struggle with the extreme costs of foundation repair only to have the foundation move again due to the one factor that really gets addressed or discussed - "DRAINAGE". Drainage is the science and art of moving water across your property. French drains are not the golden solution to everything.

A-1 Engineering believes in giving back to our community. Each child in our community is a part of the future and we enjoy encouraging and inspiring future engineers. We have participated in career day presentations and engineering programs throughout San Antonio. Along with creating awareness about the engineering field, children get to participate in fun activities that involve engineering. Many schools and organizations particpate in promoting STEM careers. Early exposure to these fields especially engineering, makes these types of careers more approachable for students who may not have a family member or role model to guide them.
