Looking out for You and Your Project – Start to Finish

Wightman Engineering

When you see fresh asphalt, we see drivers traveling on safer roads. When you see a water treatment plant, we see children drinking clean water. When you see a trail system, we see families hiking and biking together.

From planning and design through construction management and inspection, Wightman engineers focus on the impact your transportation, water and sewer system, and land development projects will have on people. We do this by learning about your needs and helping you avoid pitfalls. We think ahead, beyond the project at hand, to maximize your resources and, we use our experience to keep your project on schedule and on budget.

With a supporting team of inspectors and material testers, planners, licensed surveyors, and experts in permitting and funding source identification, we take a holistic approach to project design and management. This builds value for you and creates a sense of comfort knowing we are your trusted advisers, here to guide you through every step.
