PUBLIC MARKETS

PUBLIC MARKETS

We have built our company to provide services for state and local municipalities and assist with their upcoming needs. We fully understand the challenges of tackling public sector projects, and we’ve spent the past 20 years thinking of creative ways to do it better. In this time, Summit has grown its core services and developed related disciplines to provide a full range of consulting engineering services to the public sector. Summit’s success, tradition of service, and expansion into new fields of practice have been the driving force behind our continuous growth.

Our senior staff is mostly comprised of engineers who spent significant time working for NCDOT or local governments, so they know what is expected and ensure all of our services will meet or exceed expectations. Our breadth of construction experience allows our team to implement the principles of constructability into our design because we know what a finished, constructed and landscaped project should look like. With this unique knowledge, we can apply these principles from the very beginning to reduce costs and keep projects on schedule. This is vital for our public clients because of how many people depend on these facilities and infrastructure daily.

PUBLIC MARKET SECTORS

Summit provides its full range of consulting services to the public sector, leading all project phases from planning, thru construction, to operation. Although we may ultimately provide the same engineering service, Summit understands when the government buys, it buys differently than the commercial sector. We take the time to understand the agency’s mandates, stakeholders, goals, and challenges that must be overcome to achieve those goals. Through our diversity of services and markets, we have direct experience with many state agency’s internal and external requirements and even more importantly, how they differ. Our goal is not to be just another project team member, but to become an extension of your public mission, resulting in consistent program implementation and penetration across the state, addressing constituent needs more efficiently.


Municipal leaders and staff are held to the highest standards to maximize project delivery; as they live, work, shop, and play amongst the project stakeholder group. Summit’s full range of consulting services provides you the tool box necessary to assist delivery to your diverse stakeholder group, while responding to groups that may actively be working to prevent project success. Our breadth of construction experience allows our team to implement the principles of constructability into our design because we know what a finished, constructed and landscaped project should look like. By providing personalized consultation services we seek to improve the communities and lives of citizens, strengthen the function of local government, expand community development partnerships, and lay the foundation for a better tomorrow through practical planning, constructible designs, and ensuring project quality.
