Infrastructure upgrades and maintenance costs are major challenges for all levels of government, business, and industry. Partnering with a civil engineering firm that can find cost-effective, long-term solutions to help you improve efficiencies and find ways to maximize cost/benefit ratios is key to your success.


Thompson Engineering’s civil engineering experience is diverse. In our 65+ years, we have partnered with a variety of clients with very different planning, design, and budgetary requirements. From complex infrastructure systems for roadways, bridges, drainage systems, water/sewer systems, and traffic control to horizontal infrastructure in support of plant operations, we tailor our work to the standards required for commercial, industrial, transportation, municipal and federal clients. Global companies like Austal USA and Airbus Americas choose Thompson Engineering for their US projects for one simple reason: we get the job done efficiently.


From planning, surveying, and permitting, to earthwork and drainage system design, utility and security design, road and bridge design, and airfield and port & harbor development, Thompson delivers thoughtful and robust design solutions. Our professional engineers and planners provide owners with the assurance that their projects are developed using the latest technology and modeling software, resulting in the most efficient design solution available.
