  • “Our property was settling and the foundations needed jacking up. I asked around and Michael’s name kept coming up. They put in concrete slabs, pipe piles and adjustable jacks. I think they did an excellent job.”

  • “I found them in the Good Service Guide, and they’ve done 2 major jobs for me. They rebuilt 8 balconies on an apartment building for me, and re-did a wall. They are reliable, and they’re good fellas.”

  • “I had a big remodeling job with lots of different contractors at my home, and Safe Engineering was among the best. I like their work very much— the crew is excellent. They’re on time and easy to work with. I would use them again.”

Owning a home in Earthquake Country, you’ll often need a structural engineer for a major remodeling project. Most builders don’t have engineers on staff, so they sub out engineering – at an extra cost to you.

Michael Rasooly, M.S., P.E., is a structural engineer who also owns a construction firm. A former supervisor and plan checker in Berkeley’s Building Dept., Michael’s company, SAFE Engineering Construction, specializes in basement and garage conversions, foundation upgrades, settlement problems, and seismic retrofits.

He has been protecting, upgrading, and strengthening Bay Area homes and apartment buildings for more than 10 years.

By using SAFE Engineering Construction, you can benefit from the cost efficiency of having your entire building project handled by one company responsible for the entire job from start to finish.

“We offer design/build solutions,” Michael explains. “Our prices are very competitive on complex or challenging projects, because we are able to pass engineering and design savings on to our clients.

“The fact that we also do the work means that we can solve unforeseen problems on the spot, and/or avoid last minute change orders.”

SAFE Engineering Construction performs all types of foundation retrofitting and strengthening. They excavate basements to give increased head-room, do seismic upgrades on unreinforced masonry buildings, perform drainage and hillside repairs, and build retaining walls.

“Our goal is to deliver customer satisfaction, at a reasonable cost,” says Michael. “We specialize in cost-effective solutions – and we have a long list of satisfied clients in the City. We encourage you to call them for a reference on our work.

“We provide free on-site consultations for all your construction projects.”
