Federal Agencies

Building a better nation, project by project.

SEH navigates our governmental bureaus to execute successful projects. We have decades of experience supporting Department of Defense (DoD) clients such as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and other federal clients as well as a solid resume of IDIQ contract projects.

Across the nation, SEH's engineers, architects, and scientists work with dozens of federal agencies to keep our country safer; our environment cleaner; our air, land and water cleaner; our transportation systems faster and more efficient; and our national parks more informative and accessible.

Civil works

SEH delivers a wide variety of civil engineering projects for USACE Districts across the country. Our civil works projects include:

  • Flood risk management
  • Dam rehabilitation and construction
  • Bridge Inspections
  • Structural design
  • Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and analysis
  • Geotechnical analysis
  • Utility modifications
  • Site design for building projects

What’s more, we have an in-depth understanding of FEMA and USACE policies, practices, regulations, design requirements, constructability issues, cost limitations, and schedule importance.

Design Build

Design | Build (D|B)

Our solid background with D|B projects lends itself perfectly to federal projects. We also have experience with alternative D|B methods including CM-at-risk and designer-lead D|B projects. Our architects and engineers have experience leading and supporting D|B contracts for government projects including:

  • Delivering design documents
  • Shop drawing reviews
  • Construction inspections
  • Specification interpretations
  • As-built drawings
  • O&M manuals

Established teaming and mentor/protégé relationships extend our reach to new geographies, service types, and further our contribution to the communities and agencies we serve. We’re dedicated to navigating the complexities of federal projects to serve the citizens across our Nation.
