Where Engineering, Land, Environment, and Preserving Culture Come Together

Tribal Services

We believe in balance when combining opportunity, development, and culture. A deep history and tradition shape the future of each Tribe, and the right partnership between a Tribal Nation and a firm can help move visions forward.  We offer a comprehensive range of planning and engineering services designed to support Tribal communities in their journey toward growth, development, economic diversification, affordable housing, connectivity, safety, sustainability, and resilience.

Grant Writing and Assistance

We understand that funding is not always adequate to meet the needs of our Tribal clients for essential preservation and community improvements. Our grant-writing and funding experts directly support project efforts by identifying and pursuing the possibility of project funding. We are proud to say we’ve obtained more than $550M in grants in the past 10 years, including more than $200M for Tribes.
