History

In 1998, L.S. Engineering, Inc. (LSE) was founded by Carol Smith, P.E. in Greenville, Michigan.  LSE originally specialized in construction engineering oversight including inspection, testing, and project documentation for federally and state-funded road and bridge construction projects throughout Michigan.  LSE continues to provide these construction-related services for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and local government agencies.  Projects in which LSE has been involved range from the $100 million US-131 S-curve reconstruction project in downtown Grand Rapids to the Fred Meijer Heartland Trail rural non-motorized path construction projects in Montcalm and Gratiot counties.

In 2004, LSE purchased Scott Civil Engineering Company, a well-established, well-respected bridge design company when Mr. Robert H. Scott, P.E. decided to enjoy semi-retirement.  Building on this additional expertise and years of experience, LSE’s range of services has grown to include many transportation-related specialties ranging from bridge design to litigation support.

SCECO

Scott Civil Engineering Company was founded in 1983 by Robert H. Scott, P.E. in Grand Rapids, MI.  The company specialized in bridge design, primarily for local government agencies.  Throughout the years, the services Scott Civil Engineering Co. provided grew to include inspections of in-service bridges, construction oversight, and a wider range of bridge design capabilities.  To date, Scott Civil Engineering Co. has designed over 190 bridges in Michigan.  Additionally, Scott Civil Engineering Co. performs hundreds of bridge inspections for local government agencies throughout the lower peninsula of Michigan.
In 2004, when Mr. Scott began to consider semi-retirement, he sold the majority of Scott Civil Engineering Co. to LSE.  Since then, Scott Civil Engineering Co. has become a wholly owned subsidiary of LSE.  By bringing the two companies together, we can efficiently offer full-service transportation infrastructure services to a wide range of clients.  Because of the slightly different backgrounds of both companies, our staff has a solid understanding of the needs and concerns of local agencies and MDOT which allows us to tailor our services to best fit each individual situation.
