Yu Ching got his start in structural engineering design at Steenhof Buliding Services Group (SBSG) in Orillia, Ontario.  There, he was immediately exposed to a wide range of unique and challenging residential projects, which included full structural designs of custom homes, cottages, and boathouses.
