Public Works

Solutions & Services
By implementing modern street networks and recreational trail connections, GBA advances community goals for mobility and accessibility. Our mission is to construct critical transportation infrastructure to create more resilient travel that meets the needs of people and the outdoor environment.
Traffic engineering covers studies and design to reduce congestion and advance goals for safety. Our traffic team analyzes intersections, corridors, highways, development sites, and work zones to provide right-sized solutions for traffic flow, pedestrian crossings, bicycle mobility, and transit accessibility.
Bridge design requires thoughtful examination of the forces of the natural environment. Our engineers also inspect bridges to understand the remaining longevity. Our use of aerial infrared scans can identify bridge deck delamination to prepare a deck repair plan.
Street Lighting
Street lighting is instrumental in advancing safety along streets and other public venues. GBA is well-versed in the requirements for nighttime lighting that work in tandem with security goals, sight distance thresholds, crossing safety and landscape architecture features.
Site Development
GBA offers full-service expertise when city facilities require site improvements for grading, drainage, parking lot rehabilitation, lighting, or landscape architecture. Our staff harnesses the latest technology to tackle site improvement components ranging from GIS mapping to permitting, platting, zoning, utility connections, surveying, staking and inspection.
Design/Build Services
Known for its cost-effectiveness and timeliness, Design-Build project delivery places the engineering design under the contractor team to maximize what can be constructed provided a pre-agreed-upon budget. For municipal design-build projects, GBA staff have worked on-site developments, corridors, recreational trails and intersection crossing safety projects.
Construction Inspection
GBA's team of construction engineers and inspectors assist communities with quality assurance for infrastructure projects. GBA staff have the specialized skills and certifications to take any project from design through construction, including contract administration, daily inspections, environmental inspections, materials testing, punch lists, as-built plans and all final documentation. In addition, our inspectors take an active role in each project, focusing on the client’s needs and maintaining communication with other stakeholders.
GBA provides environmental restoration and ecological mitigation for public works projects. We have environmental specialists, permitting professionals, and sustainability experts ready to balance project costs with a quality solution to support surrounding natural resources.
Stormwater resource engineering covers natural streamways, detention, retention, best management practices (BMPs) and enclosed stormwater conveyance systems. GBA offers planning, design, inspection and rehabilitation for stormwater projects and can assist communities with our certified Floodplain Management experts.
GBA has decades of experience in the planning, design, and implementation of water distribution systems and associated treatment infrastructure.
GBA provides expertise in all areas of collection and treatment for wastewater systems. GBA Wastewater Engineering encompasses the collection, treatment and discharge of wastewater from homes, industries and communities. Additionally, GBA and our affiliates aim to protect public health and the environment by removing harmful pollutants from wastewater and returning them to the environment in a safe and sustainable manner.
Asset Management
GBA brings together experienced municipal management, engineering, and geospatial professionals to assist clients in designing, developing and implementing scalable asset management solutions. Our approach matches the selection of technology and workflows, leading to easy-to-use and maintainable systems. This helps community staff make proactive decisions to maximize the impact of every dollar spent.
GIS can ingest asset, planning, design, environmental, staffing, and budget data, in addition to other sources, to develop actionable intelligence and innovative solutions that empower city staff and maximize the impact of every dollar spent. The GBA GIS team uses the latest technology to right-size the approach and ensure staff can effectively use and maintain the systems necessary to improve the quality of life for all stakeholders.
