Key Staff

Our key staff are organized into several teams, each led by a principal. This method of operation allows decisions to be made quickly.

While progressing in broadening our engineering key staff, experience and complexity of projects, we have developed relationships with several associated firms providing wetland, geotech, landscaping, traffic, environmental and planning services.


We have grown and maintained a staff level so that we can respond to the needs of our various clients and their specific project requirements.
