In 1988, Stanford graduates Rodrigo Santos and Albert Urrutia founded Santos & Urrutia Structural Engineers, Inc. with the idea of focusing on the small and medium-sized projects that are all too often overlooked by the larger engineering firms. As the two young engineers grew their company, they approached each job with the same combination of innovative new methods and sound structural strategies. By doing this, they made the most cutting edge designs and thorough plan checking and retrofitting services available throughout the region regardless of the scope of the project.

Today, Santos & Urrutia, Inc. is an award-winning, full-service firm with over 11,000 completed projects to its credit. The company’s expert engineers have designed the structures of hospitals, schools, churches, custom homes and multi-use facilities while also devoting themselves to the planning of household additions, remodels and complete & partial seismic upgrades.

To do this, Santos & Urrutia, Inc. employs a dedicated and diverse team of engineers and drafters who are as accomplished as the firm’s founders. On each project they utilize a combination of state-of-the-art computer aided design technology and hands-on experience to plan each project. Santos & Urrutia’s consultants and customers alike are assisted by a professional and courteous administrative staff.

Santos & Urrutia, Inc. maintains strong ties to its community and is highly regarded by the Bay Area building establishment.
