Client Testimonials

“The CE Group is a wonderful civil engineering firm!  I have personally worked with the CE Group for more than 10 years.  You might ask why I keep going back to them–it is simply because I trust them as individuals, I trust their engineering to be correct, and I trust them to understand that the design must be the most cost effective design possible for our clients.”

- Paul Eitel, CEO, Focus Design Builders

“I have enjoyed working with the CE Group on both large and small development projects since 2003.  I continue to use them on new projects because of their quality of work, level of integrity, responsiveness to challenges, and value for relationships.”

- Jack Morisey, President, Community Properties Inc.

“We have used CE Group for a variety of projects from the simple to the complex.  I have always found Mark, Joe and the CE Group Team to be exacting and professional in their efforts before, during and after a project is complete.  They are creative problem solvers and allow us to develop projects that might otherwise not be able to be undertaken.”
