At Jackson & Sands Engineering, Inc, a wide array of tools are available to us to create effective solutions for you. In our industry, like many others, not one tool can complete every job and not all tools are needed for every project. Much like a carpenter who has their most commonly used tools in their tool bags, yet more tools in their tool box, and even more tools that are rented for specialized projects, we find ourselves using our core tools on most aspects of every project, other tools may be used less frequently on most projects, and even more tools are needed on a case by case basis. The most commonly used tools for us include:

Microsoft Excel – Excel and other spreadsheet software are a staple in our line of work. We have several excel sheets set up for every project. Some spreadsheets track progress, others are used as standard forms, and yet others compute complex equations that are nested within multiple sheets. When our other calculation type software, such as Enercalc and Forte, hit their limits for certain projects, we can trust that excel will take us the rest of the way by creating new spreadsheets and equations to calculate and determine our desired results.
