Mission Statement

SE&I's mission is to utilize our experience and knowledge of best construction practices to provide quality professional engineering services that empower our clients achieve their goal of acquiring, constructing and/or renovating residential and commercial properties.

Fundamental Cannon

SE&I will strive to provide unbiased and independent opinions concerning issues of structural integrity based on observed evidence, sound engineering judgment, and the protection and welfare of the public.


Michael Vines established Structural Engineering & Inspections in 2000 to provide structural engineering and building science services to the residential community in the Middle Tennessee area. Since that time we have worked with thousands of homeowners, home builders, renovation contractors, architects and real estate professionals. Our staff has assisted in evaluating suspected structural damage or deficiencies, reviewed framing for compliance with local building code requirements, designed structural framing and foundations for renovations and new construction and evaluated water infiltration problems for residential structures.

SE&I was established to fulfill the need for professional and ethical consulting service in the growing housing market. Our goal has always been to raise the standard of care for residential engineering consulting services, and to bring a level of service that is common in commercial consulting and design to the residential market.

Mark Garman, a registered professional geologist, joined our staff in 2007. With Mr. Garman's experience we have begun offering geotechnical and geologic consulting services. We can now assist our clients with evaluating soil conditions on residential construction sites as well as evaluating footing excavations and investigating ground water issues.

SE&I is increasingly involved in commercial building design and renovation. Mr. Vines has extensive experience in commercial design from historic building renovation to multi-story concrete and steel framed buildings. If you are considering the purchase or construction of a new commercial building our staff would be happy to assist you.

Our staff strives to provide the best customer services and level of care to our clients. We take the time to get to know you and your needs in order to provide the best service.
