Testimonials: What our clients are saying about us

“The early efforts and time spent by the consultant to understand the problems and then present the issues in layman’s terms helped the project achieve credibility with the affected parties.

The analysis produced recommendations that fit our situation, are reasonable, and most importantly can be implemented.  We did not get a cookie cutter set of solutions – they were tailored to address our needs.”

Brian G. Amundson, P.E.
Director of Public Works
City of Eau Claire, WI

“We were very pleased with the final report and the recommendations made.  It was well thought out with solid data to back up your conclusions.  

We immediately started to execute most of your recommendations…that alone shows how much we valued your input.”
