Focusing On What
We Do Best

We do more than execute projects that work. We help you look beyond boundaries and discover the right solutions that help your community prosper.

We’re passionate about creating safe and sustainable water systems that are good for both our communities and the natural ecosystems. With vast experience planning and designing valued, reliable systems that meet our state’s evolving water needs, we’ll help you steward your most precious natural resource and leave a lasting legacy.

water resources

A safe, reliable water system capable of supplying a sufficient quantity of drinking water to its customers is a fundamental charge for our municipal and water supply clients. We’re experts in the master planning of public water systems; the identification of surface water sources such as rivers and reservoirs or the development of groundwater sources; the design of storage facilities for water at or near the source; the design of pumping and raw water transmission facilities used to transport water from its source to the treatment facility; the design of water treatment plants to improve the quality of water, making it safe for human consumption; the design of transmission lines, pump stations, and storage facilities used to transport treated water to intermediate storage facilities and to one or more points in the distribution system; and the design of distribution systems (piping) used to deliver the treated water to individual users connected to the system.

Regional Water System

Wastewater – our community’s water supply after it has been used to support human life and various other purposes – must be collected, treated, and discharged back into natural waterways in order to maintain healthy and attractive living conditions. Our experienced, senior-level engineers are helping communities throughout Texas manage and improve every element of their wastewater systems: 

On-site processing, including facilities for pre-treatment of industrial wastewater before it is discharged into the collection system;

Collection and transmission systems, including the piping systems for the collection of wastewater from individual sources within a community and the pumping and conveyance of the wastewater to a treatment facility;

Treatment, which is comprised of the facilities necessary for the treatment of wastewater to an environmentally safe condition, such that the effluent can be discharged and returned to natural waterways without adversely impacting the waterway’s ecosystems.

Modern cities are ever expanding, transforming the land from natural, rural, or vacant conditions to “urbanized,” which inevitably results in a decrease in the previous, undeveloped surface and increase in impervious surface. This urbanization of watersheds has historically caused increases in stormwater runoff flowrates and volumes, as well as the increase in frequency and magnitude of flooding.

The regulatory environment related to stormwater management is ever-changing and continues to grow in complexity. We’re committed to modern, stormwater management practices, methodologies, and excellence. We are proactive in leading both our public and private sector clients in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of best management stormwater practices.

Our engineers have been industry leaders in providing municipalities with innovative solutions to reclaim, reuse, or recycle treated wastewater for beneficial human uses – landscape and agricultural irrigation, industrial processes, toilet flushing, replenishing and supplementing surface water supplies (discharging and blending within reservoirs), and recharging groundwater aquifers.

Our Team’s experience within the region includes the permitting, planning, design, and construction management for wastewater treatment plant modifications, reuse water transmission mains, groundwater storage facilities, pump stations, and the distribution “purple” pipe systems to enable our communities to augment, protect, and support their potable water supply.

Our trademark subdivision design is based upon years of experience in designing neighborhoods and communities that function with the land and the surrounding environment. We have the unique ability to turn development “constraints” into marketable “opportunities” that create value for both the consumer and the developer. Our subdivisions blend modern, creative land planning techniques with sound, proven civil engineering design. The result is a “livable” neighborhood that is economically viable for the users as well as the developers, and is environmentally, financially, and socially sustainable for future generations.

Although our land development engineers have been planning and designing neighborhoods and communities for many years, we are students of the profession and we continue to grow and learn as the public places higher values on quality of life and environmentally friendly characteristics of the places they chose to work, learn, live, and recreate. Our employees, clients, friends, and family are all consumers of the results of our subdivision planning and design. Knowing and understanding the importance of our work drives us to excel in the planning and design of Conventional, Traditional, New Urbanism, mixed-use, and master-planned communities.

Complex site development projects are a significant part of our land development practice. Feasibility studies; floodplain analyses; zoning and entitlements; grading, paving, drainage, water, and wastewater design; stormwater detention design; construction management; and regulatory agency compliance and permitting are all functions of the site development process.

Our brushstrokes on site development are visible and tangible throughout the region. Baylor’s McLane Stadium at IH-35 and the Brazos River is our most visible project and proof of our expertise, quality of work, and leadership capability to “complete the mission” on complex site development projects.
