Our History

Lahita Engineering was founded in 2010 by Eric Lahita PE. Eric was licensed by the State of New York in 2006, and decided to follow his dream of working as an engineering consultant shortly thereafter.

He began working for several large heavy civil contractors on deep foundation projects in the tri-state area. Being centrally located in the Hoboken Area, he also started working with Hoboken and Jersey City residential developers, as well as act as a subcontractor to architectural firms; creating structural sets of drawings.

Today, Lahita Engineering employs 4 full time Junior Engineers (EIT’s), and is steadily growing to keep up with the Tri-State Area’s bustling economy.


Core Values

We work fast, but we will not sacrifice safety, integrity or our commitment to provide the best possible result. We know things need to be finished yesterday, and you will not find a firm that works harder to beat deadlines without sacrificing quality.

Whatever your project’s focus - drafting plans for submission, performing capacity calculations, creating construction details, home or commercial inspections, diver inspections etc., we will perform at a high level of efficiency and professionalism to deliver the best result possible.


At Lahita Engineering, we don’t have clients. We have partners. We understand the concept of building trust and loyalty over time. And with this in mind we approach every project the same way – with an overwhelming sense of pride. We know our partners will be pleased with our performance because we’ve been there before and there is no project that goes beyond our expertise.

As a valued partner, we will answer all of your questions honestly, providing you with all of the information you will need to make the best possible choices. If you don’t know, we will help you to decide, communicating with you every step of the way.
