Cost-Effective Design and Revision
Need assistance with a building project? REDI provides engineering services for a variety of types of buildings, including agricultural, residential and commercial, as well as any other out-of-the-ordinary sort of project you might have. We are happy to assist with design, rehabilitation or repair. But regardless of the type of project, we remain focused on providing personalized, client-centric services at a price you can afford. We especially see a lot of pre-engineered metal buildings in our rehabilitation and repair work, as those are the most common type of commercial building in the Midwest. When the use or purpose of a building changes, we are available to work with you to make sure the design and function of the building changes accordingly.

Understanding Malfunctions and Other Elements of Forensic Engineering
Attorneys, insurance companies, corporations and other individuals involved in legal proceedings involving machinery or buildings often require the assistance of an expert witness to explain certain key pieces of information. Our REDI engineers offer their knowledge and research abilities to help provide this information and explain it in layman’s terms to help a case progress efficiently. Forensic engineering generally involves using available knowledge to explain why things malfunction. When a building collapses, for example, it is a forensic engineer’s job to figure out what structural element failed and caused the collapse to occur. We accomplish this through the use of scientific, technical and other specialized knowledge and research.
Solutions for Your Machine Engineering Needs
If you are looking to develop a new product, evaluate or upgrade existing products or reduce manufacturing costs, REDI is here to help you out. We develop a wide range of machines for clients in a number of industries, helping them to upgrade their own capabilities. Our team is able to act as a contractor for your company’s engineering tasks contract out when there’s simply too much work for you to handle internally. Our ability to solve unique and complex engineering challenges or perform a number of tasks for you will give you more time to focus on other vital tasks and competencies in your company. Finally, we provide forensic advice about machines as well, determining where equipment is most likely to fail, identifying defects and devising solutions for problems in machines.
Design Certification to Mitigate Risk
REDI engineers hold engineering licenses from various state licensing boards. Over a century ago, anyone could work as an engineer without proof of competency. In 1907 Wyoming enacted the first engineering licensure law. Today every state regulates the practice of engineering and only Professional Engineers (PEs) have the authority to sign and seal engineering plans and offer their services to the public. Licensure as a PE is a legal requirement for engineers who are in responsible charge of work. REDI offers PE certification (Design Certification) of new or existing designs for compliance with State or Federal regulation or legislation. We mitigate risk for our client’s piece of mind. Often reporting to an authority is not required except when an incident occurs and becomes investigated. Once an intendent occurs, authorities may require proof of compliance with relevant standards or regulations. Documentation must show that equipment or machinery was certified by a competent, licensed, qualified person. Examples for certification include some of the following:
- Pressure equipment
- Lifting equipment
- Hoists and winches
Even when no standard exists for equipment or machinery, certification can be done in order to reduce risk or satisfy end-user acceptance. If equipment or machinery poses a life or safety hazard, REDI can offer advice.
