Jim Pawlikowski is one of the finest structural engineers I have ever worked with:

his structural abilities exhibited in his designs and during field inspections are exceptional and include consideration to accommodate all the necessary architectural and MEP details. He is always helpful, understanding and timely with his work and with solutions to problems that arise during design and construction. He provides clear and useful direction to solve budget and coordination problems that arise during design as well as field problems due to issues that arise during construction. His communication is effective whether to the top managers or to the trade forces performing the work.
