Our staff is experienced in a wide range of water, wastewater, drainage, surveying, subdivision design, planning and transportation engineering projects. HFC is organized into two “teams”– the civil/municipal engineering team and the surveying/land development team. Both teams work together and are assisted by our support staff in coordinating all projects.
The civil/municipal engineering team prepares designs and confers with IDNR and/or IDOT on design requirements, solicits all necessary environmental and archeological clearances, and prepares plans and specifications for competitive bidding of the project and provides construction administration, observation and testing throughout the construction process.
The land development team is involved in various types of surveys, right-of-way work and the design, construction and review of subdivisions. They have technical skills in surveying, roadway design, utility layouts, drainage evaluations and solutions and right-of-way issues.
We assist our clients with the development and implementation of long range planning. HFC provides funding research, grant writing, land use planning and zoning services. We aid in the development of capital improvement budgeting and planning. We work closely with bond counsels, the Department of Economic Development, IDNR for low interest sewer and drinking water loans, FEMA assistance, and IDOT for grants for many of our street and highway projects.
