Our expertise is broad ranging from residential, commercial and community development to civil design, construction management and special inspection services.  We strive to provide a full service in-house design and engineering package – complete with in house reprographic services – and we continue to develop the necessary resources and personnel to maintain this level of service for our clients.

We provide services on complex projects in a team environments and have experience working locally with other specialists and consultants. We can provide general planning services in house or can work with certified planning consultants based on project requirements. We can provide land surveying services on an as needed basis. Whether there is a specific need for a Landscape Architect or a commercial project requiring Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing design, we can identify key project complexities early on and develop a team to cost effectively address the specific project requirements.

Although we are focused on and committed to local North State communities, we are also licensed in other States and have experience working effectively in many other California and out of state locations and jurisdictions.

Nicholas E. Riddle
Principal Engineer

Now in our fourth year, we are thankful for the opportunities we have had to work with our clients and to see the problems solved and projects completed. Our experiences over the past three years have allowed us to grow and find more opportunities to serve and to expand our services and ability to deliver. I am a member of the Choctaw Nation and have been certified by the State of California as Disadvantaged Business Enterprise for a Native American owned business. Now, the ability to offer professional Land Surveying services in house is a key component of our business plan in 2019.     

We will continue to maintain the level of service for local residential and commercial projects while reaching out toward more complex project opportunities with a vision to serve the State of California, local municipalities, community services districts, irrigation districts, resource conservation districts, industrial businesses and private telecom utilities. We thank everyone again for the opportunity and trust we have been given to provide professional engineering and consulting services on all of our projects.

Developing the firm’s resources necessary for this type of growth is achievable by fostering close relationships with other local professionals
