Our Story

Seb Ficcadenti and Michael Waggoner founded FWC in 1991. They went into this new venture with a passion for structural engineering and a goal of providing high quality service to high quality clients. Seb and Mike knew building a team that shared their passion for structural engineering would help them achieve this goal.

Since the beginning, FWC has built a team that exemplifies Seb’s and Mike’s founding vision. In less than 10 years we added two new principals, Tom Castle and Mark Schroeder, and expanded into new regions and markets. Tom Castle took the FWC values and opened our Northern California office giving our firm the ability to service all of California. Meanwhile, back in Irvine, Mark Schroeder built a portfolio in the retail and mixed-use market with projects that are staple destinations of the SoCal community.

Today FWC has over 70 employees and our numerous 20+ year team members show Seb’s and Mike’s success in achieving their goal. We have added 3 more principals: George Sun, Vince De Vita, and Sayola Briney. Each of them looks forward to taking FWC in new directions. We have opened two additional offices in Idaho and North Carolina for five total locations across the United States. We provide high quality services nationwide and have completed projects as far away as Korea and Norway.
