Our Philosophy

Joshua L. Porter, PE


At Consult Engineering, our clients always come first.

We achieve this by insisting that our services bring real benefit to the community. It isn't enough that we simply provide services to our clients. We feel that if we haven't improved your situation and taught you something along the way, we haven't done our job.

We are the only firm in Southwest Florida dedicated to providing true Owner Representation services for the end users of existing buildings. Most of our clients are Condominium and Homeowner Associations, but we also represent the interests of indivual home owners. In order to avoid conflicts of interest, we do not provide services for large developers or general contractors of condominiums or homeowner developments.

When we founded Consult Engineering, we wanted to raise the standard of practice in our field by focusing first on Owner Representation and secondly on engineering design and consulting. It's a philosophy that we think distinguishes us from our competitors by making the focus on the client with constant communication, ethical budget estimating, timely reporting, and vigorous defense of your interests. It's a concept which has proven successful for both Consult and our clients who are all repeat customers. Just e-mail us and ask for a list of our references, they will be more than willing to share their experiences with you.
