Originally founded in 1976 as Hourdequin and Associates in Tallahassee, Florida, D. REMY & CO has completed thousands of structural engineering projects over the past 30 years. These have included a variety of commercial, industrial, and residential projects.

For the past 20 years, D. REMY & CO has operated under its current name. It began initially in Sarasota, Florida and for the past fifteen years, has been located in Western North Carolina - first in Highlands/Macon County and as of February 2008 in Hayesville/Clay County. David Hourdequin is the owner and his wife Anne serves as the office manager and bookkeeper.

The firm now specializes in the structural design of heavy timber framing & truss systems and related structural engineering. We have completed over 800 timber frame and log system designs and that number is increasing by about one per week on the average through the year. These range in size from small residential additions to large commercial projects.
