ARE YOU REAL ESTATE DEVELOPERS?

No. We are civil engineers focused on providing the best service we possibly can in the land development / redevelopment arena. We work closely with land owners, regulatory agencies, and many land development professionals in making a project happen, among them developers, geotechnical engineers, botanists, land surveyors, traffic engineers, architects, construction contractors, and real estate agents.

DO YOU PROVIDE LAND SURVEYING SERVICES?

We do not perform property boundary surveys. But we can put you in touch with any one of several qualified licensed professional land surveyors to get the job done. As a licensed professional (civil) engineer, we are limited by law to performing “engineering surveys” relating directly to our project work. For example, we always field check and sometimes supplement elevation data provided to us by others. This practice is imperative for quality control, while providing an invaluable opportunity to assess project challenges on the ground.

DO YOU PROVIDE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SERVICES?

No. Structural Engineering is a specialty under the more general heading of Civil Engineering. When a client is looking for assistance in this area, we refer them to one of our colleagues along the Wasatch Front.
