Buying and selling a house in today´s market has never been more difficult.

Homeowners desiring a bigger living space find it easier to add or alter their existing home than to move to a new one (home additions cost is typically lower). Because home additions and home alterations have been on the rise.  Universal Engineering has tasked a team of design and project management professionals (turnkey team) to provide a one stop shop experience for our clients from concept to completion. Whether it is a simple room or a complex upper floor addition or building alterations, the expansion possibilities go very far thanks to our knowledgeable, creative, qualified, and licensed professionals.
