Creative & Efficient
Structural Solutions

Hom-Pisano Engineering, Inc. is a structural engineering firm specializing in the design of residential, commercial and non-building specialty structures. We are a bi-coastal firm with offices located in San Francisco, California and Westfield, Massachusetts.

Structural integrity
is essential.

As structural engineers we analyze and design buildings and other structures to withstand various types of loadings, or forces, including gravity loading due to people and furniture, as well as lateral loading due to wind and earthquakes.

We work with owners, developers, architects, contractors and other design and construction professionals in a collaborative environment to produce functionally complete and aesthetically pleasing buildings.

We ensure that the structures we design are sound and safe and can be built in a manner that is practicable for the builder, cost-effective for the owner and mindful of resource consumption and environmental impact.


Our services:
high standards + client focused

We hold each and every project to the same high standard of care and quality of service no matter the size or scope. We believe that the involvement of the engineer through all phases, from schematic design through construction, is critical to the successful and economical completion of each project.
