Our History

Structural Engineers Scott Stedman and Robert Dyson founded Stedman & Dyson Structural Engineers in January 1980, locating their first office in downtown San Diego on Grape Street. By 1983, the start-up partnership's workload and staff increased to include the addition of Michael Gardner as project engineer, and the practice was relocated to Thorn Street and then subsequently to Old Town.

By 1987, Stedman & Dyson took the milestone step of incorporating. The growing firm decided in 1990 to move to larger and more centrally located spaces at 8989 Rio San Diego Drive in the Mission Valley area of San Diego. Though the 1990's brought a depressed economy which severely impacted the construction industry, Stedman & Dyson maintained a pattern of steady growth by pursuing diverse projects with loyal clientele and by continuing to add topnotch staff.

In 1993, the firm appointed Michael Gardner as Principal. Soon thereafter, Daniel Korntved, S.E., and Christopher Kamp, S.E., joined the firm bringing with them 18 and 19 years respectively of structural design and engineering experience. Both Korntved and Kamp were appointed as Principals by 1997. That same year also brought the retirement of Scott Stedman. Mr. Stedman was anxious to move into active retirement to the Central California Coast.

By 1999, continued growth in both staff and projects precipitated another relocation of the corporate office to larger spaces at 3838 Camino Del Rio North in Mission Valley, and by the summer of 2003, the firm expanded into an adjacent suite.

Today, Stedman & Dyson Structural Engineers as SDSE continues to provide the same hands-on service to an increasing client base in a distinctly different world than when we first began. The relevance of our profession and the need for quality engineering has never before been so clear.

Our current staff consists of eight licensed Structural Engineers, one licensed Civil Engineer, three CAD/REVIT drafters, and two administrative personnel. Together, our staff comprises an unequaled team of consulting Structural Engineering design professionals.
