Steven Feller P.E., LLC was founded in 1979 by Steven Feller. Over our first 5 years we grew from a 1 person firm to 15 engineers and designers. During the next 15 years we grew slowly, adding only very experienced and thoroughly qualified engineers and designers to our current staff of 50 (this number also includes a few overworked administrative personnel). We have consistently evolved along with our industry – from hand drafting to 100% computer aided design and drafting. Our staff level has remained constant over the past eight years. Our office is currently in the process of implementing the latest software systems in computer aided drafting and design – Revit 2008.
Please refer to our Key Staff for details on the backgrounds of our leadership team.
Over the past 28 years we have gained a tremendous resume of varied projects. From high rise office buildings, condominiums and hotels to large single family homes, regional malls, industrial warehouses, airports, municipal and Federal facilities, sports arenas and much more. We have designed the Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, Fire Sprinkler, and Life Safety Systems for all of these projects.

Serving our clients with a high degree of professionalism, imagination, and skill is a Steven Feller P.E., LLC trademark. Our designs:
- Encompass the latest technological innovations where applicable
- Are creative in approach, (especially with renovation projects)
- Will be in complete accord with the architect’s design concept and the owner’s operational and financial objectives
Design schedules are consistently met. All documents incorporate sufficient detail to expedite Building Department approval and Contractor’s bidding. Cost effectiveness is foremost in our engineers’ minds during all phases of design and contract administration.
Being a member of the Broward County Board of Rules and Appeals for the past 17 years has also given Steven Feller and our firm an opportunity to help reshape the local Building Code and work closely with all Building Departments in both Dade and Broward Counties. Familiarity with Plan Reviewers and Building Department procedures enable us to help expedite permitting through these departments, which saves our clients time and money.
Our Client Commitment
Our commitment to the team concept requires that the mechanical and electrical engineering of a project support the architectural and interior design concepts which have been approved by the client. As engineers, we look for inventive methods and solutions to maintain the integrity of the design, comply with codes and meet expected probable construction costs.
We have chosen consciously to remain a mid-size firm with an engineering staff of 60 qualified engineers, designers, draftsmen, and administrative personnel. This allows Steven Feller P.E., LLC’s associates, officers and principals to provide personal attention to our client’s needs, assure that all the project requirements are met without over or under design, and that they are within the agreed budget.
We are not only committed to the design areas of the project, but once the construction documents are completed and the contractors are selected, we will meet with the client/architect and the assigned contractors to review the MEP design and resolve any areas of concern. During the construction of the project, our company commits itself to prompt shop drawing review and periodic site observations to assure that the project’s design intent and compliance with code are being met. The contractor’s requests for information or clarifications, extensive final punch listing and witness testings of the completed MEP construction are performed promptly and professionally.
This commitment assures the client that Steven Feller P.E., LLC will not only provide the design for the project, but will also provide engineering services through the entire construction and startup occupancy phases. Additionally, we remain available to resolve any issues that arise naturally or as a result of system changes as the projects ages.
Steven Feller P.E., LLC has a joint venture arrangement with several established and certified women owned and Afro-American owned engineering firms with minority status. This allows us to provide a complete package enabling your design team to meet almost any projects minority requirements.
