Client Comments

I would like to express my satisfaction with the efforts led by Baxter & Woodman in providing various engineering services for the Village, including capital improvement project planning, water/wastewater improvements, new roadway and intersection design, subdivision review, and construction observation. We appreciate the dedication of the firm and focus on Village needs.
Director of Public Works
I am extremely thankful for having such a great team from B&W to work alongside with on such an important project. Today was only a continuation of the 110% they have brought to this project from day one. Please know that you and your staff have blown me away from day one since becoming a part of this project and because of it, have set the standard in this industry on what a top notch firm is. Again, thank you all for everything, I am truly thankful!!
