About Us

Founded in 1998 by NC State University graduates Joe Faulkner and Mark Ashness, CE Group is a multi-disciplinary firm licensed to practice Land Surveying, Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture.

Delivering services from the North Carolina mountains to the coast, CE Group participates in the life of a construction project—from conceptualization and entitlement to construction services, including stakeout and as-built certifications.

We work well in a team environment, which often includes architects, environmental consultants, transportation engineers and other construction or government professionals.

“We have used CE Group for many projects, both simple and complex. I find the CE Group Team to be exacting and professional in their efforts before, during and after a project is complete. Creative problem solvers, CE Group enables us to develop projects that otherwise might not be undertaken.”

Kirk Bradley, President & CEO, Lee-Moore Capital Company

“The CE Group is an exceptional civil engineering firm, who I have worked with for 10+ years. I work with this team because I trust them as individuals, I trust their engineering to be correct, and I trust them to understand I need the most cost effective design 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 of relationships.”

Jack Morisey, President, Community Properties Inc.
