Engineering Dept. Site Visit
Recently, we had the logistical opportunity for our entire engineering department to visit one of our job sites. Many of our design and detailing staff had the opportunity to perform their own inspection and assessment of the work and to interact with our field personnel. Additionally, our field personnel had the opportunity to discuss ideas and to share their field perspective with our engineering staff. We believe this sharing of information is essential to providing our clients with the quality product they expect.
