Our vision is to create communities that makes life better for everyone – every person, every client, every municipality. This motivates us – inspires us – to do what we do. In an ever-changing world, we define ourselves from the “raw dirt” to the finished product – and we love what we do. This is our calling… welcome to The Team!


We are a Phoenix based Civil Engineering Design and Project Management firm that functions as an extension of its land development client base. The Team differentiates itself from the competition by developing efficient and effective designs that have a significant impact on the cost and scheduling of a project. Planning and conceptual design proceed “hand in hand” to achieve a cost-effective project. Once a project has been planned and it is in the production mode the major value optimization opportunities are lost, leaving only less significant value engineering.
