Bridge Engineering, Inspection & Design

"Due to impending new FRA regulations I shopped around in 2010 for the best price to have this engineering work performed. I received proposals from 3 other engineering firms to perform the necessary surveys and engineering which, in my opinion, were quite expensive. You adapted your services to fit my needs and budget while advising me on how to assure compliance with the new regulations when they take effect. The value I received at a lower cost is just what I was looking for."

-Don Cleland, General Manager, Ashland Railway, 2011
