About YCL Structural Designs

YCL Structural Designs Ltd. is a motivated team of seven friendly young professionals providing structural engineering design services across the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.  We mainly service architectural design firms and builders, most of whom, we have built long trusting relationships with.  Our projects range from removing small load bearing walls to building third storey additions to brand new custom 10,000 plus square feet mansions. 

Our team actively attends multiple residential construction sites all cross the GTA on a daily basis, where we interact with builders, designers, and city inspectors. This allows us to collect a wide range of industry feedback which in turn helps us adapt our engineering design work to conform with the most current construction trends and methods.

Yu Ching Lai

Structural Engineer

Yu Ching’s fascination with construction combined with an interest in math and physics led him to discover his calling as a structural engineer. His achievements in this field began in school with the prestigious Gold Medal from the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science at Ryerson University, followed with a Masters of Applied Science from Queens University. His experiences from Steenhof Building Services Group in Orillia exposed him to a wide range of unique and challenging residential projects (custom homes, cottages and boathouses). At K.H. Davis Engineering Consultants Ltd. in Toronto then helped him develop into a fully independent structural engineering consultant conducting close to one thousand site consultations over one hundred structural design projects over a span of just 3+ years.  He brings all of these experiences to YCL, combined with his trusted reputation and strong will to help clients actualize their vision.
