5 stars

Downs Engineering has my highest recommendation. Since 2001, Downs Engineering has provided civil and structural design and project management—from concept to completion—on over 38 projects in Weyerhaeuser's MS, LA, and AR sawmills.

Down’s Engineering sticks to old fashion values such as honesty and trustworthiness that many firms have abandoned in pursuit of profit. Brent and his team have always put safety as top priority and their safe actions on our plant sites have been an valued asset.

Brent Downs does not back down from hardship in the field, in the mud, in the ice, in the rain or working late to get the job done.

Thanks for your 16 plus years of being part of Weyerhaeuser's Capital Projects.
