Effective transportation systems are the key to safely connecting our communities and a driver for a thriving economy. As vehicles and transportation networks become increasingly automated, it is vital to develop safer, and more efficient and capable designs that increase mobility and reduce congestion.

EPS Group thrives on challenging transportation projects that require a high degree of technical innovation, consensus building, and public involvement. From urban arterials and freeways, to rural roads and highways, to multi-modal trails and bikeways – EPS provides its clients with a wealth of experience, insight, and resources to deliver the highest quality studies and designs. We cultivate innovative solutions to complicated questions and strive to design the safest, most cost-effective, and operative transportation systems.

Survey / Geospatial

Preparing for the unknown is one of the greatest challenges an owner faces when embarking on a new project. Whether a multi-acre site or a single building, understanding existing field conditions allows for greater design accuracy, and provides a roadmap for potential cost savings.

The science of land surveying continues to evolve along with the technological advances in construction. As a proven industry leader, EPS Group embraces this new generation of surveying and utilizes comprehensive, state-of-the-art tools and instruments to add value to land development, infrastructure, and utility projects.

However, the equipment is only as effective as the professionals who are operating it. When conventional survey methods fall short, our team of experienced geospatialists utilize laser scanning, aerial mapping, and drone technology to collect, analyze, and process data to deliver high-quality 3D models, maps, and panoramas of otherwise inaccessible areas. From tunnels to reservoirs, bridges to high-rises, EPS has the latest technology to develop comprehensive solutions for every project.
