MUNICIPAL ENGINEERING

OUR “CALL TO DUTY”

Serving Municipal Clients is a “call to duty.” Today’s Townships, Boroughs and Cities require a seasoned and steady hand to guide elected officials and their administrative staff through the ever increasing complexities associated with the development and permitting process. 

Whether it be understanding the processes promulgated by State DOT’s, the processes for identifying and obtaining State and Federal grant funding opportunities, tailoring specific zoning and development standards, state permitting requirements, MS-4 programs and mapping requirements, GIS programs, and on and on and on.

The Municipal Engineer must be knowledgeable in all of these disciplines and must keep themselves current and meaningful through continuing education and seminars and through pier groups and fellowships dedicated to excellence in this field of endeavor.

DEDICATION AND PRECISION

Working at the behest of a governing body, who are collectively responsible to their tax paying residents, is a very important and serious position in our industry. There is no place for unwarranted expenditures, no room for poor planning or poorly designed development projects, there is no justification for local flooding issues due to poorly designed stormwater management projects, there is no place for mis handled MS-4 Permitting processes. Essentially, the Municipal Engineer is responsible for assuring those and many, many more fields of endeavor within this discipline are successful for the town and its residents. Without Exception.

ENGINEERING WITH A VISION

In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing environment, the role of the Consultant Engineer is paramount for any community or developer whose goals are: excellent service for their residents, stewarding well planned and well-designed capital improvement projects, administering cost-effective and well-designed capital improvement projects, budget-sensitive site development designs, adherence to complex project timetables, excellent coordination and timing of all project permit requirements.

In addition, the Consultant Engineer must have a vision and must be able to help shape the landscapes of the communities where their projects are located and the communities where they serve. Many complex projects come across our desks and an excellent Consultant Engineer must be prepared to build the best team of experts possible to tackle these projects without concern for the position of their firms.
