Highways and roads


We are a full-service consulting firm with multi-disciplinary expertise in all aspects of planning, engineering, construction, maintenance and support services for roadways and related transportation infrastructure. We have served government transportation agencies, design-build customers, and private industry for over 50 years. 

We take a client-first, realistic approach – we know that each transportation project is unique, and we work collaboratively with our clients to find creative, practical solutions.  The result is functional, durable, and safe roadway improvements that provide economic value to our clients and demonstrate respect for the environment. 

Our expertise has been put into practice on a wide range of urban, suburban, rural, and industrial roadway projects from the arctic to the tropics and in coastal, mountainous, and desert terrains.  We have experience with facilities such as: 

  • Limited-access freeways, expressways, motorways and toll facilities
  • Multi-lane urban arterials and collector roads
  • Simple and complex interchanges
  • Rural roads and highways
  • Port and airport roadways and infrastructure
  • Heavy-haul roads for oil, gas, and mineral exploration

Our team includes civil, structural and geotechnical engineers; scientists; technicians and inspectors; and support personnel who know how to unravel complex roadway issues and develop creative solutions. We can draw upon the talents and resources of our global network of experienced roadway professionals to respond to the transportation needs of our clients.
