For more than 40 years, GHA has guided municipalities, county and state agencies, transportation agencies, stormwater commissions, and townships to achieving their goals.

Direct service to the organizations most responsible for providing their constituents reliable, safe, cost-effective services is a priority for GHA. Many of our professionals currently serve as full-time municipal engineers for a dozen Chicago-area municipalities and on an as-need basis for dozens of additional communities. Our wide range of services allows communities access to the resources of a full-service engineering firm without having to fund these services on a full-time basis.

We are particularly adept at managing the potentially controversial nature of public projects, planning issues, and the need to maintain a positive relationship with local residents and businesses.
