Water Quality Retrofit, Retaining Wall Replacement, and Pocket Park Design in Takoma Park, MD

The foundation of our engineering practice was established 30 years ago with an intense fascination of applying the technical aspects of water resources engineering to practical applications.  This interest has evolved into an organization that offers daily exposure of our technical staff to the real world of construction and operations and maintenance.  While this informs our work product in unique ways, it also brings engineering to life, engaging our staff on exciting projects and attracting new talent.

Even though SMC practices construction and maintenance, engineering is at the heart or our organization and informs everything we do. Ingrained in our culture is a high priority on weighing the technical and practical aspects of problems.  This prioritization results in solution-based approaches and avoids turning every project into a monumental engineering feat.  We focus on getting things done efficiently with an eye on project completion.

As existing infrastructure specialists, we meet the challenges of engineering improvements to highly constrained infrastructure.  This specialization has established us as a go-to firm for resolution of issues with existing stormwater facilities, assessing and designing retrofit facilities, and natural stream restoration design.  To meet these challenges, our engineers combine high levels of creativity with common sense and technical expertise.
