ABOUT OUR DEPARTMENTS

We started out as a surveying and civil engineering firm, but we have expanded our expertise to broaden the services we can provide to clients. Summit now has 13 departments providing every service from initial planning and funding assistance to maintenance management of existing facilities along with anything else you could possibly need in between.

By offering a full complement of design and engineering services we can be involved in a project from the beginning to the end.

We make it a priority to stay within your budget, because our goal is to ensure that your project is done on time and exactly how you envisioned it.
