We established our firm in 1981 and were incorporated in 1999. Over the years, we have been involved in complex engineering projects with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on the design and construction of water resources and military projects, including: flood control and navigation structures; and buildings.  We also have a team of national experts from academia and private industry as associates with the capabilities to develop risk analysis methodologies for assessing the hazards associated with aging infrastructure projects. This team has also been responsible for the development of many USACE guidance documents, state-of-the-art text books and publications. Our lead engineer led the Interagency Performance Evaluation Task Force, Risk and Reliability Team examining the hurricane risks associated with the New Orleans hurricane protection system following hurricane Katrina.

We are also experienced in new custom home design and building, as well as remodeling and additions to existing homes.
