The design of man’s activities relies on the practice of engineering and land surveying. The two practices are intertwined. In every case, the design of physical improvements is limited by technical constraints such as minimum setbacks from environmentally sensitive areas or increased performance standards due to environmental factors. We have the knowledge and expertise to deal with the regulatory and technical constraints and limitations. Good civil engineering design must rely on a good survey of existing conditions. At Holmes and McGrath, Inc., we offer both expertise in land surveying and civil engineering. Our individual employees are knowledgeable in both and have an expertise in either of the professions.
