Spartan Inspection Services was founded by Howard D. Althen, a registered Professional Engineer (PE) with over 20 years of residential, commercial and industrial design and inspection experience. Structural engineering design services provide the contractor and builder with the proper instructions as to how to build a home.
He has provided structural design and inspection services to many homes including:
• Large, custom residential structures in excess of 6500 square feet
• Standard custom, semi-custom and tract homes
• Apartment complexes, town homes and hotels
• Additions and remodeling design services for existing homes, including Historic homes
Howard learned early on that communication is key to designing and building a home. Over the years, he has worked with contractors, architects and owners. Proper report writing has become second-nature as a good report saves everyone time, money and headaches.
Howard is a true lowcountry boy as he was born and raised in the Charleston area. He is a devoted husband with four, that’s right, FOUR beautiful children. He is an active member of Christ Church of Mount Pleasant and believes that, through Him, all things are possible. Spartan Inspection Services is a direct result of the blessings provided by Our Lord.
