Joey did everything I asked for in a very rapid and punctual manner. I will definitely call him again when I have my next project.
We are working on 5 projects with Durand and Smith and are completely pleased! They are responsive, professional, and a great value for my small projects. Even us small guys need awesome engineers! I appreciate that they provide ideas, guidance, and insight. If the job doesn't require a ton of work, they will tell you honestly. Their plans are spot on and delivered on time!
Plan to use them again in the future.
Very Professional Company and always ready to help you with any projects that you will be developing.
Very knowledgeable. Revisions were made until the City of Houston approved my plans! Would hire Durand & Smith Designs again.
Very prompt service I liked he came out with his wife and both were very polite and helpful .
I have worked and still work with Anna Smith with Durand & Smith. Thus far, I am very pleased with their professionalism. They are a joy to work with and are very clear regarding the project. Drawings are detailed and discussed thoroughly. They schedule meetings according to my schedule! Very nice perk, we have met on Saturday, the offices are closed but Anna was more than accommodating. I have a future project once this one is completed and plan to work with Anna on that project as well.
Performed required by City of Houston structural engineering services for my courtyard masonry wall restoration. I had to have engineering seals on my project blueprints before the Permitting Center would issue my building permit. Anne and Joey met ALL commitments: appointment times, deliverables, delivery times, etc. They advised me that I did NOT need two services costing about $1000 that other engineers told me I had to have (obviously, the other engineers were padding their own pockets). So, put Anne and Joey down as honest in addition to being competent structural engineers. In addition, Anne and Joey were 1/3 of the price quoted to me by "name brand" engineering companies. Besides performing competent engineering services, Anne and Joey are delightful people; they are so easy to work with. What a treat it was to meet them and chat with them about my project. I do not give praise lightly or easily so it is a real pleasure for me to provide genuine, positive praise to a small can do local engineering firm.
Great experience, work performed as promised. Good eye for details.
Joey and Antoinette took so much time listening and answering all of our questions. They were patient, friendly, and very professional. We are very pleased with our home remodeling plans and would recommend them to anyone needing architectural advice and design.
Joey and Antoinette Smith are very prompt and professional to work with. They listened to our requirements and executed exactly what we wanted. They were always available for a phone inquiry, and ready to implement your request. We would recommend them to anyone. We feel lucky to have found such an outstanding team!

At the time I found Durand and Smith I was looking to add square footage to my existing residential home but had no idea where to start. After describing my project to D&S they knew exactly what needed to be done and provided all the supporting documentation needed to get my plans approved the first time. Throughout the process when I needed changes or had question they were always responsive and prompt with trying to help me. Overall they are experienced professional who take the time to provide a great design and answer questions every step of the way. I would certainly recommend D&S to anyone who is looking to have their project designed with detail, care and professionalism. Durand and Smith, Thanks for making this a truly positive experience for me.
"The consultation started like it should, with a warm greeting, and a detail introduction of their Proprietary engineering process.I left thoroughly impressed by the quality of their past projects, and their knowledge of the discipline. I am looking forward to working with Durand & Smith Designs on this project, and in the future."
Great service, very knowledgeable and professional, no hidden fees. Everything that is agreed upon is respected. You are allowed to revise the plan until satisfied. Will highly recommend this company to anyone.

So far the experience has been awesome. Durand & Smith Designs were very helpful throughout our initial consultation. They are wiling to take on this challenge and work to my standards and specs to build my dream home. Very professional with all they right tools and skills to design my home from scratch. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!
The owners of this establishment were extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process. They made sure my every need was met and could see that they are highly motivated and experienced in their field. The entire project went by smoothly with no problem, and was delighted with their work. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a custom home design and planning company.
My husband and I have not been too keen about building our dream home due to the fact that a lot of the custom homes/planning companies out there don't meet their services as promised on time. But with a recommendation from a close friend we were told about Durand & Smith Homes. With the first call to the company my husband was quite taken by them. The owners of Durand & Smith Homes worked with us one on one throughout the entire process.
