    Our projects include site grading and drainage systems, street and utility infrastructure, water and wastewater systems and solid waste facilities

  • Surveying & Underground utility location

    Our approach to land surveying is focused on collecting the data required for the engineering design of construction projects.  This means that our survey maps are detailed, accurate and easily integrated into the engineering design and drawing software.

  • Investigation & Inspection

    As Special Inspectors we work closely with testing agencies to provide timely, comprehensive inspections for each project. We use our expertise of the project’s structural design to provide knowledgeable inspection of all types of building materials.

  • Contractor Support Services

    As Engineers, we understand that responding to technically diverse problems, economic limitations and challenging time restraints is crucial on any construction projects.

  • Non-destructive Testing

    We use non-destructive testing wherever possible on projects to minimize destructive removals. Testing needs are developed as the field survey proceeds. We work to find the appropriate engineering properties of in-situ materials rather than relying on historical data.
