Engineer Consulting


As engineers, we’re trained to adapt and solve problems in even the most demanding situations. We also deliver results in an efficient and exact manner that respects your schedule and budget. Our experience in all areas of land development enables us to help clients realize the full potential of their properties. Further, we’re able to help them successfully manage the increasing demands and complexities of regulatory agencies. Above all, we bring our credentials, reputation for excellence and absolute integrity. We consistently give our clients the very highest level of engineering expertise and service. We also give them the confidence to strive toward their most ambitious goals, knowing that we’re helping to guard their interests.


Our team is experienced in the end-to-end design, approval, and construction of commercial properties. We understand the complexities of safety, compliance, and environmental sustainability involved in commercial projects, including retail, hospitality, medical, and business facilities.

Communication and flexibility are integral to our approach. We take a hands-on role in commercial projects to ensure a safe, efficient process with successful results. Detailed and thorough planning allows us to anticipate roadblocks and proactively develop workaround solutions. Starting at your project’s conception, we can manage all phases of commercial site development and construction.

Hydrology & Hydraulics

Whether you are trying to build infrastructure, develop land, improve commerce and recreation, or restore a habitat, hydrology and hydraulic efforts can significantly impact the schedule and cost of your project.

Hydraulic systems are unique, often requiring a significant amount of money and resources for optimization and may not provide an immediate return. Additionally, with the complexity of local, state, and federal requirements, permitting can take years. Resolving your hydrology and hydraulic engineering challenges requires experience and understanding, as well as a sense of how the system can work as part of the overall project.


Industrial projects require diverse capabilities, including site procurement and development, facility design and construction, and strategic planning. We can assist you with one aspect of your industrial project, or provide fully-integrated Project Management from concept to completion.

Our focus is on enhancing productivity and boosting your bottom line. We work closely with industrial clients to help them solve immediate problems and achieve long-term profitability. Whether you’re developing a new industrial complex or improving existing systems and facilities, we have the experience and expertise to manage your endeavor.


Rezoning and access. Floodplain and environmental issues. Permits and impact fees. These are only a few of the potential obstacles to address during the predevelopment stage of your land development project.

But how can you commit to a site if you don’t know what’s going to happen down the line? The answer starts with the steps you take before you break ground or even purchase property, which could mean the difference between your project’s success and failure. Weighing important site selection factors—like hard and soft costs, schedule, and risk—and identifying obstacles early on can save you time and money from initial site selection through regulatory approval.
