Most community projects must perform a specific function, but the ultimate success can be found in its appeal to a community's sense of pride. 

Given their size, complexity, budget concerns and completion schedules, most community projects require a very high level of coordination between the client and our project team. Garrett-Ihnen’s assignment of one engineer to serve as your project manager is the perfect approach to engineering institutional projects in order to ensure continuity, as well as significant time and cost savings.

Plus, our decades of experience working with various municipal agencies throughout Texas gives Garrett-Ihnen the unique ability to assist your project team with all aspects of development — from initial planning and design to permitting and construction.
