seeking referrals for a structural engineer

See this request from a Rhode Island Avenue NW resident:

I'm looking for a structural engineer to survey a planned basement dig, reinforce 1st floor supports, and create plans to file with the city for my basement remodel.

I did try to contact an engineer from a previous posting but they're not answering.

Years ago I used Wainright Engineering & Consulting at 1324 N LYNNBROOK DR, ARLINGTON, VA 22201-4919. The owner was up there is age, so I don't know if he's retired but he was great.

I work as a general contractor and we do basement underpinning, renovations, and all construction documentation and design. I can prepare all structural drawings in-house and have them reviewed/stamped by our engineer.

This saves hundreds of dollars in drafting fees, and is fully insured and bonded.

You can see photos of a basement we excavated and renovated here:

Let me know.
Hope it goes well.
