Highly recommend! I was looking for a structural engineer to inspect my property for any structural issues and Bruno was fantastic. I learned a lot from him as he explained everything in a simplified way so that I could understand. Great experience and I can tell he treats his clients well. Thanks Bruno!

We were dealing with a City of Toronto open building permit. After reading such positive Google reviews we called MXL Engineering to which Bruno Lopes responded the same day and shortly thereafter inspected the area in question. He corresponded with city staff, kept us informed throughout and finalized his inspection with a written report—permit is now closed. In short: Proficient, Timely, Affable.

I came to Bruno when I was in a very tight spot. I needed a building permit within the next couple weeks and needed drawings reviewed in a hurry. Bruno was accommodating, fast and extremely knowledgable. He turned around the project in a matter of days, helped me with any necessary edits (even at 9pm) and guided me through the building permit process. 10/10 would recommend.
