We staff a full team of engineers and technicians—civil, mechanical, electrical, transportation and structural. These teams are a leading resource for municipalities, utilities, developers, environmental groups, and others, and provide specialized support to our internal architect and design teams. Clients turn to us when they seek to measurably improve the efficiency, sustainability, constructability, and usability of their projects.

Civil Engineering

Our civil engineers, landscape architects, and surveyors are responsible for ensuring that each project is well considered in siting, orientation, traffic flow, landscaping, utilities in, storm water management, and more. They ensure that the built environment honors natural landforms, protects wetlands, manages runoff, and takes best advantage of natural shade and light.

With designated experts in a host of specialties including traffic management, wetlands restoration, universal design, limnology, and sustainable practices, this group provides expert consultation for a wide range of clients—within our firm and well beyond.

Progressive AE is a multi-disciplinary firm with all the services you will need provided by an in-house team of professionals. We have the vision and experience to anticipate and solve the many pitfalls that can derail a project to meet your budget and deliver the finished product the client desires on time.

Our experienced and diversified infrastructure team is eager to take your project from vision to reality utilizing our innovative solutions. The strong communication systems we utilize in our projects will ensure you are well informed throughout the project and develop trusting relationships with our team. We strive to exceed client expectations to be your trusted resource for decades to come.

Survey Team Services

As the basis for engineering design, our survey teams focus on accurate and complete surveys. We realize that the creation of an accurate and complete base map is the foundation for a successful engineering or architectural design.

Offering services as support for in-house design teams and stand-alone clients, our surveyors are dedicated to the efficient and timely completion of all land surveys. Writing property descriptions, right of way descriptions, and easement descriptions that can affect property rights is a service we offer to private citizens, energy companies, and municipalities. Construction layout surveys, post construction location surveys, and reports assist our building industry clients by ensuring structures are placed where they belong.

Our teams utilize advanced surveying equipment, software, and field techniques.

Building Systems Engineering

Our mechanical, electrical, and structural engineering teams are creating new and innovative ways to reduce cost and energy consumption and improve human comfort and safety in the built environment.

Combining creativity with engineering know-how, these innovative thinkers are finding affordable and effective ways to make the most productive use of building systems—developing systems that capture geothermal energy or reclaim waste water, and designing lighting controls and systems that improve comfort and reduce costs. We’re even helping energy providers make notably better use of their own energy.

As we make discoveries in one market, we’re applying them to other markets we serve, helping organizations  do more without spending more and producing some amazing results in the process—in buildings, in neighborhoods, and in communities.
