Job description

About Us
In 1998 John C Darden Jr. made the transition from constructing buildings to designing them. Past experience as owner of John C Darden Building Company gave John a unique perspective in creating engineered plans. This point of view allowed him a level of understanding that some building design planners lack. His knowledge that designed plans can crash head first into real world limitations made being flexible a priority. Almost two decades later the Darden Engineering team focuses on tailoring the building design process to our client’s needs. The priority of flexibilty from when John began Darden Engineering transformed into satisfying our clients each and every time we do business. This attitude towards complete client satisfaction is why a significant portion of our clientele are referrals or repeat clients.
