BH2M has the benefit of offering a full service survey department. Our survey department provides the foundation for each project we undertake. Having the ability to self-perform survey services provides us with a cohesive transition from field reconnaissance to design and then to construction. Typically, our Project Managers will accompany the survey crew early in the process. We’ve found this be an effective approach that reduces the time needed for field survey and guarantees that designers will have the critical information needed for an accurate design. Our survey staff is highly trained in property line, existing conditions, utility and topographic surveys as well as construction layout.


BH2M’s Staff include professionals who have been certified by the Maine Department of Transportation as Local Project Administrators. Whether a project is funded by the DOT or not sound engineering practice relies upon the guidance contained within the Maine Department of Transportation’s Highway Design Guide and Standard Details and Specifications. The fundamentals of the LPA process are applicable to most municipal infrastructure projects.

      Environmental Review

      Right of Way Certification
