Helping Municipalities Navigate the Infrastructure Improvement Process

Advocating for Communities

PEC has provided comprehensive, multi-discipline engineering services to municipalities for nearly six decades. Our team tackles every project from a holistic perspective and an environmentally sound mindset, looking out for the best interests of the project as a whole and not just our part. Our dedicated areas of service relevant to municipalities include:

  • Transportation
  • Sewer Systems
  • Water Systems
  • Water/ Wastewater Treatment
  • Stormwater/Drainage/ Floodplain Studies
  • New Buildings and Renovations
  • Project Management
A Partnership You Can Trust

Our methodology for providing advice and services to municipalities is an interactive team effort consisting of key staff members from the city and PEC. This communication and interaction between us and city management, staff, and policy-making boards is critical in identifying project goals and developing alternatives that best fit the city’s needs. This approach has been improved with each project and is a proven strategy for producing quality projects and satisfying clients. Based on experience, a primary and a backup point-of-contact provide better service and make our team more responsive to your needs. In order to best serve your city and to further develop our relationship with city staff, we will attend staff and city council meetings as needed.

Proven ability to communicate and manage projects with minimum interruption to service.
