PROVIDING OPTIMIZED STRUCTURAL SOLUTIONS IN FLORIDA AND THE CARIBBEAN
DESIGN - BUILD
The proven way to optimize a construction project!
We specialize in pre-engineered metal building foundation design.
Metal building manufacturers do not provide foundation design. With years of metal building experience and licensed structural engineers, we are well equipped to provide structural foundation designs in the quick time frame pre-engineered metal buildings require.
"Thou shall space joists at 2'-0" O.C."
Many engineers consider this phrase to be the 11th Commandment but would happen if they actually designed the mezzanine for the loading and geometry of a given project?
We have and the results are an optimized and cost-efficient design that reduces steel tonnage and installation costs as a byproduct!
MISCELLANEOUS STRUCTURAL DESIGN
No job is too small for our team! From one-off designs to signed and sealed shop drawing production, we can be of service in a number of ways even when not serving as Engineer of Record.

Robert Wechsler PE is a boutique structural engineering firm led by Rob Wechsler. With high-rise experience in Miami, FL under his belt, Rob has since shifted focus and decided to hang his own shingle.
Founded in 2018, RWPE fills a gap in the market for small to medium size project and niche designs on fast-pace construction timelines.
Rob Wechsler is a graduate of the University of Florida with a Master's Degree from Georgia Institute of Technology. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Florida.
RWPE uses new technologies to quickly produce structurally sound and efficient solutions. We may be a young company, but a foundation based on innovative technology will allow us to grow and scale.
Whether its a full structural set of drawings, an inspection of an existing structure, or shop drawing production, Rob and his team promise quick communication and a vision that keeps the building's end users at the forefront.
The economics of structural engineering is upside down. In most cases, engineers negotiate a lump-sum contract. This contract set-up incentives a large firm to allocate as little design time as possible and does not leave much wiggle room for drawing revisions leading to an unmotivated engineer.
RWPE breaks the mold in two distinct ways: first, we work with contractors and architects to optimize materials used and efficiency of construction schedule. Second, we have something to prove! We have assembled young, hungry, and dedicated team that leverages technology to provide precise designs on a rapid timeline.
