About Plant Group
Plant Group provided project management and engineering services related to transportation infrastructure (road, highway, railway, port, transit and airport facilities), environmental infrastructure (water, wastewater, drainage and storm water management, waste management and recycling), buildings (industrial, commercial and institutional facilities) and industry (food processing, wood products, steel, energy and motion pictures) from 1999 through 2014.
Effective in 2014, the firm ceased to provide professional engineering services and shifted its focus to value analysis, claims management, litigation support, constructability analysis and project controls.
Plant Group committed to a collaborative approach to serve its clients and colleagues:
By partnering, we can virtually eliminate the adversarial nature of the traditional project implementation process. With more energy focused on problem solving than assignment of blame, projects are bound to move ahead more quickly and efficiently.
