I don't know what they are paying the Structural Engineers who stamp my plans, but they are often billing those guys at $250-$350 an hour.
Multipliers in the A/E industry run from 3x (hard to turn a profit) to 7x (exploitative).
A PE in a structural engineering firm senior enough to stamp drawings is probably getting $65/hr + benefits. Of course, they're probably working 50+ hours a week as a salaried exempt employee, so that hourly figure starts to shrink fast.

I would think the number would be closer to $80/hr plus benefits

Donít forget that most PEs also have side gigs.
