What our Clients are Saying


“I was referred to [Watkinson Engineering] by another civil engineer who was too busy… right away he was responsive, professional, and helpful, he had obviously taken the time to review all the random info I had sent him about my permit issues, and explained clearly what was needed to move forward. I’m not happy about the additional utility costs the City has imposed, but that’s on them and we have a path forward. So glad to have been introduced to [Watkinson Engineering], looking forward to getting this permit mess resolved and I know it will. Thank you!”
