Bigger than you might think
We are a full service engineering firm. Since our inception, we have had longstanding relationships with partners in other engineering disciplines including geotechnical surveying, structural, electrical and mechanical.
We have found partnering with other engineers to be a significant benefit to our clients because they are specialists in their field. It reduces overall costs by reducing overhead, but more importantly, we can choose partners based on their experience, expertise and how it will benefit a particular civil or environmental engineering project.
Our partners are located across the Northeast and are readily available to local officials and contractors. We are well versed in collaborating efforts with them.
Recognition for Yankee Ingenuity
The engineers at Underwood are recognized as professional, innovative problem solvers. With inherent Yankee ingenuity, we have consistently achieved long-term, affordable solutions for the complex problems municipalities face. Proven expertise in obtaining funding, State & Federal grant procedures, negotiation, design solutions, project delivery, value engineering, budgets and cost sharing has resulted in a reputation for excellence and service.
Project Delivery Philosophy
A Principal and Owner is involved with every project and sets goals of quality assurance and client satisfaction. As our client, you always have direct access to a Principal.
We are firmly committed to a project management system ensuring those goals. The Project Manager, a registered professional engineer, is assigned for each project and has the overall responsibility for project delivery (i.e. schedule, budget, technical coordination, and communication). The Project Manager remains as your primary contact from project initiation through construction and to start-up.
The Project Engineer is designated as the secondary contact to assure that assistance will always be available when the client requires it. With specified individuals responsible for your project, you will receive timely responses to your questions and needs.
