Small Business, Big Results – Let Us Share Your Vision
We have been successful in implementing our clients' visions

national and global experience. This expansive experience affords us a broad view of applicable engineering concepts. Understanding the “big picture” from the engineering design perspective and
the client’s vision, enables us to differentiate the “wants” from
the “needs” and the “feasible” from the “improbable” to develop cost-saving solutions.
As a well-established and specialized firm, we provide diverse engineering services such as foundation analysis and design, underground and superstructure design, soil improvement, water and wastewater system design, roadway and highway design, geotechnical investigation, tunnel design, construction inspection, pavement design and management, material testing, structural distress evaluation, non-destructive testing, rehabilitation and restoration of constructed facilities, feasibility studies, cost estimating, alternative evaluation, environmental regulatory compliance and hazardous material assessment and control.
We have also begun providing innovative information technology
solutions to our government and private clients.
Our extensive engineering portfolio includes predesign,
construction inspection and general contracting projects ranging
