Awards & Recognition

IACC Transportation Project of the Year, Town of Spangle,2014

Belsby designed and managed construction of a TIB funded pavement overlay project on 1st and 2nd Streets.  The project included ADA upgrades to the sidewalk ramps, replacement of unsuitable sections of roadway, and pavement overlay of approximately 1,300 feet of road.  In addition to the overlay project, Belsby designed reconstruction of 3rd and Ash Streets including water main replacement.  Belsby designed and managed construction of a CDBG funded water main replacement in 3rd and Ash Streets.  The remaining proposed improvements include: replacement of approximately 1,800 linear feet of roadway, construction of sidewalks, curb, and gutter, construction of stormwater management facilities, replacement of underlying culverts and the installation of a new pedestrian bridge.  In addition to these projects, Belsby has secured $571,000 in TIB funding to reconstruct the failing portion of Main Street.

A value engineering study was performed by Belsby Engineering and modern concrete rubblization and cement treated soils (CTS) were determined to be the most cost effective solution for subgrade construction. The estimated cost savings from rubblization and CTS as opposed to conventional construction methods was approximately $150,000. This significantly benefited the client with a superior product at a reduced cost.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Ralph Sunwold, Mayor

Belsby Engineering supported our project by pre-engineering the entire site utility and grading design. By the time the building pad development occurred, the design team and owner already had all the unknowns answered. Belsby’s continued support with existing clients and new leads, along with random occasional personal visits just to check in, provide both mutual awareness of potential work and personal connection. It’s great to hear about your consultant’s fishing trips and adventures from the small town they grew up in.

The Town of Northport has been working with the team from Belsby Engineering to assist us with grant writing for the needs of our very small community. Specifically, Ryan Berg, Design Engineer for Belsby Engineering, has been very knowledgeable, professional, efficient, personable, and very interested in the needs and continued growth of our small community. Belsby Engineering has been a very vital contributor to our success this far and we will continue to work with them on future projects. The Town of Northport would highly recommend Belsby Engineering to any community with large or small needs.”

I recently had the opportunity to work with your company and wanted to express my gratitude for your great professional services! Brian took the time to explain everything in detail giving me a realistic time line of what I should expect. Brian and his staff always answered the phone and always had an answer for me. I am very pleased with their work and just as much impressed with the quality of service. I highly recommend Belsby Engineering. They did exceptional work for me!
