About Edwards Engineering

A Family Business since 2005


Edwards Engineering, PLLC was founded in 2005 by Dean P. Edwards, following a 30-year career owning and operating a general contracting business.

After graduating from North Carolina State University in 1982 with a degree in Civil Engineering & Construction management, Dean went on to build a very successful career in construction.

He provided a unique service in that on top of handling all contracting, he personally handled many aspects of construction, including framing, roofing, siding, flooring & trim. He believed this highly invested, hands-on approach led to a level of quality that was largely unmatched in the construction industry.

It was with this same approach that he started Edwards Engineering. With 30 years of hands-on experience, Dean’s vast construction knowledge enabled him to provide high quality and practical solutions to engineering problems.

Following Dean’s retirement in 2010, the business went inactive until it was re-launched in 2020 by Dean’s son, Patrick Edwards.


Patrick Edwards graduated from North Carolina State University in 2012 with a degree in Civil Engineering and became a licensed PE in 2017. He began his career in construction at the early age of 3 by tagging along with his father. Throughout high school and college, Patrick continued to work alongside his father learning the various construction trades.

After a couple years of climbing cell phone towers after college, Patrick went to work as a structural engineer. He worked hard to learn the business and gain experience, ultimately taking over Edwards Engineering. He works hard to bring the same hands-on approach and attention to detail as his father.

With Edwards Engineering, every aspect of your project is personally handled by an experienced PE from start to finish. This creates a standard of excellence resulting in a smoother construction process and higher performance structures.
