Civil Engineering

Translating your vision for the built environment.

Every project is unique. That’s our approach to civil design. Our professional engineers focus on simple but highly refined designs that deliver on client vision, work with (not against) site constraints, and translate for construction. That means we don’t over engineer or over design projects, spending against your budget with little value. Our expert and nimble teams follow your project from start to finish, maximizing productivity and creativity every step of the way to redefine success.

Highland Park Engineer of Record

Since the City’s Engineering Department did not exist for more than a decade, it was critical for return operations to self-sustain and not strain the City’s already depleted general fund. Metro Consulting Associates established a $500,000 annal budget and paired it with a reasonable fee schedule that ensured the City’s adequate representation for right-of-way permitting, site plan reviews, and other capital improvement construction projects.
