“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Patrick Kervin. I have known Pat for almost nine years. Patrick has always displayed a high degree of integrity and responsibility. He is definitely a leader rather than a follower. Pat is always willing to go the extra step to make sure the project is finished on time and within budget. Patrick is also a dependable team player. His good judgement and mature outlook ensure a logical and practical approach to every project. Patrick’s background as a glazier both in the United States and in Europe in the early 90’s gives Patrick an extraordinary ability to engineer unique solutions that most engineers without practical field experience would not explore. I have spent my entire professional life in the glazing industry and over all the years, I have never met another engineer with the background that gives Patrick the edge in this competitive industry. His keen ability to see problems and resolve them in the pre engineering phase of a project has saved our company thousands of dollars over the years. I strongly recommend Patrick not only as a outstanding engineer but Anchor Engineering, Inc. as a business partner as well.”

“For many years we have worked with Anchor Engineering for all of our day to day and complex engineering tasks. From relatively simple calculations such as designing/analyzing curtain wall bending or connection details to more complex calculations such as designing/analyzing custom extrusions, fins and shades, Anchor Engineering never backs down. Even though we have engineers on staff, we won’t give up Anchor as a valued partner because of their incredible service.”
