History

Frank W. Neal & Associates, Inc. has a reputation for quality work, best exemplified by repeated requests for our services from clients with whom we have maintained a long-term working relationship.  To maintain our standard of quality, we use a Design Quality Control Plan beginning with assigning a management team to each project, under the direction of a principal who is most experienced with the project requirements of each specific project type. This team will provide design, construction documents, specifications and construction observation.  At the initialization of each project, the principal reviews the proposed structural design concepts with the team.  Upon completion of the construction documents, the principal performs a thorough review, based on the firm’s written check list.   Any comments from the principal, along with comments from the client are then examined by the project management team and incorporated into the construction documents as they are applicable.

Frank W. Neal & Associates, Inc. has been recognized as “Outstanding Engineer”, by the American Subcontractors Association, Inc.  The firm has also received the “President’s Award” from the Fort Worth Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.  The firm is a member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, The Building Officials Association of Texas, and the International Conference of Building Officials.

Neal & Associates, Inc. is dedicated to excellence in the structural engineering profession.  We place priority on responding to the client’s project requirement.  The firm is a Texas registered corporation that has been in business since 1982.  Frank W.
