Looking Back

Established in 1953
Founded by Kenneth Laugenour and Lou Meikle in 1953, we began offering civil engineering and land surveying services to the largely agricultural area around Woodland and neighboring communities.  Those two civil engineers/surveyors specialized in irrigation, drainage and other agriculture-related projects for the first few years.  Kenneth Laugenour retired in 1970, leaving Lou Meikle to gradually grow the firm and expand its services to include residential, commercial and industrial land development, public works projects and comprehensive land surveying capabilities. 

 

In our early years, we maintained a local focus and grew through referrals from loyal clients.  As repeat business from those clients and their colleagues increased, we grew to meet the demand.  In the mid 1960s, Rich Jenness came to work on summer survey crews until he finished college.  In 1967 he joined the firm as a junior civil engineer and stayed with us for 40 years, gaining the experience needed to lead the firm from 1991 until he retired in 2007.  During those 40 years, the projects changed as more people and businesses moved into the area, and we were increasingly called upon to provide a wider range of engineering and surveying services to residential, commercial and industrial developments, a growing number of public works projects, as well as new schools, offices, healthcare facilities and hotels being built in the region.  As our expertise grew and our reputation spread, so did our geographic reach, extending into Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Butte, Colusa, and counties beyond.

 

Today the firm is co-owned by Bryan Bonino, P.E., L.S.; Todd Tommeraason, P.E.; and Christopher W. Lerch, L.S.  They work together with a team of over 20 engineers, surveyors and administrative staff, serving clients throughout the Northern California region and maintaining the same attention to detail and client-focused, cost-effective service that fueled our success from the start.
