Our approach to these projects begins with extensive research of existing maps and information, which we transform into usable graphic representations combined with searchable database files. Clients who maintain public utilities whether in a town or on a campus, have realized the benefits of having information on their essential systems in both graphic and spreadsheet forms. this is particularly useful data for Owners; the up-to-date information about their systems allows for more effective project planning and asset management.

We have rehabilitated wrought iron trusses, timber covered bridges, and arches, both concrete and masonry. Many of these bridges are listed on historic register lists. We routinely moderate public information meetings and believe that close and constant communication with the community is crucial so that all parties are part of the process and will be satisfied with the final outcome. We utilize new concepts in design and construction materials wherever appropriate. We keep our designs simple, practical, and cost-effective to meet the needs of our clients.
