NCI Senior Manager

" I have enjoyed working with NCI on many of MCEO's largest and most critically federally-funded projects, as well as on many other small and medium-sized transportation projects....The dedication of NCI's staff to each project never varies, and outstanding client service has become a hallmark of your firm."

Richard G. Splawinski, PE

Chief Deputy Engineer, Montgomery County Engineers Office

"...the most difficult component of the project was an extremely aggressive schedule....It was NCI's commitment to the schedule, exceptional communication, and a thorough understanding of the ODOT process that enabled them to complete the project on time. I feel confident in the abilities of Tom and his staff at NCI and would highly recommend this group for any future engineering service's needs."

Joseph E. Shaw, PE, PS

Deputy Director, City of Sylvania Department of Engineering

"In closing, let me say that if more consultants were as easy to work with and as accurate in preparation of plans, my job would be much easier. You should be held up as an example for other firms."

Kenneth B. Harvey, PE

Project Engineer, Montgomery County Engineer

2019 ODOT/ACEC Partnering Awards

NCI was one of the 12 projects nominated, and four selected, for the 2019 ODOT/ACEC Partnering Awards. Working with Holly Grimes (ODOT), Jon Drummond and the team at Northwest Consultants collaborated to solve a number of logistical, timing and structure-type problems to save ODOT money and get the bridge up and functioning before construction impacted farmers in the fall. Check out the video to learn more about NCI’s role in the Union County SR 31 project, and hear managers Holly and Jon talk about the job.


ASCE Engineering Merit Award 

We strive to always deliver top notch services, and this is evinced in recognition for our work. NCI and Parsons Brinckerhoff Michigan, Inc. (now a part of WSP) were awarded the Engineering Merit Award by ACEC (the American Council for Civil Engineering Companies) of Michigan for their work on the East Stadium Ann Arbor Bridges Replacement Project.

Funded by a TIGER II Discretionary Grant from the US Department of Transportation, the East Stadium Ann Arbor Bridges Replacement Project was a unique and high-profile project located in the heart of the University of Michigan’s campus, which included replacement of two bridges and many other features.
