Project Philosophy

Applied Consultants recognizes the unique "site specific" nature of each project. Each project is designed to provide appropriate solutions to individual complex problems. It is our policy to have a licensed Professional Engineer to visit each site. We will have "boot on the ground" at each site to provide engineering judgment and expedite projects.

Quality Assurance

Applied Consultants' corporate philosophy has always been to provide quality service. All work and reports are peer reviewed. Company principals are actively involved in project planning and execution. Continued education is an active concern at Applied Consultants. Post-baccalaureate education is encouraged, as is membership in professional organizations.

New Inland Empire Office


 Applied Consultants, headquartered in San Diego, was frequently requested to drive to the Riverside area because foundation evaluations were being performed by general contractors who were over-matched or were recommending unnecessary repairs. 

In 2018, Joshua E. Devera, set up a Riverside office to perform foundation and structural evaluations. 

Joshua E. Devera has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of California Irvine and J.D. from Western Sierra Law School. He has performed over 3,500 property evaluations, testified in Superior Court as an expert for civil engineering design, and served as an Exam Expert Consultant for the Professional Engineering Exam for the California Board of Engineers. 

About Us



Established in 1980.

What started off as a one man operation in the 1980's has survived the test of time and matured into a 30 years old geotechnical and structural engineering firm based out of Southern California.

Our original roots have never strayed since the formation of the company. Applied Consultants' first project was a structural engineering inspection of cracked residential foundations in the City of Lemon Grove for a private homeowner. Today, we still receive requests and provide engineering analysis for residential projects for homeowners, real estate agents, and insurance companies.
