Welcome to Duluth

Located on the shores of Lake Superior, Duluth, Minnesota is the gateway to ‘the North.’ This hugely popular Midwestern port town is known for its year-round natural beauty, recreational offerings, and unique amenities—including the iconic aerial lift bridge, Canal Park, downtown lake walk, and the beaches of Park Point. Duluth celebrates its history of industrial activity related to shipping and mining while thriving as a tourist destination and university town.

Ever mindful of the invaluable natural resources in the region, our local teams have provided stormwater plans, shoreline engineering, air permitting, and landfill and wastewater design for a variety of public and private clients. Our focus on civil engineering, environmental engineering, and environmental compliance helps keep development moving forward while being environmentally conscious.

Our team is committed to protecting and preserving the unique resources here in the northwoods and along Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world. Our approach to serving clients enables us to focus on being efficient, meeting standards, and getting the job done on time.
