The Townsend Team

Townsend Engineering provides services for private, institutional and municipal clients in east central Iowa. Our services have ranged from small residential projects to large commercial subdivisions.

Our staff is experienced in a wide range of water, wastewater, drainage, subdivision design and transportation engineering projects. The employees of Townsend Engineering are organized into two "teams"- the civil/municipal engineering team and the land development/surveying 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, prepares plans and specifications for competitive bidding of the project and provides construction inspection and testing throughout the construction process.

The land development team is involved in various types of surveys, right-of-way work and the design and construction of subdivisions. They have technical skills in surveying, roadway design, public utility layouts, drainage evaluations and solutions and right-of-way issues.
