  • Who We Are

    Passion empowers progress. At the core of CHW is passion – for people, for our community, for progress – which drives everything we do. Perfecting the details of our craft and focusing on the bigger picture work hand-in-hand. This simple idea has fueled us since 1988. We strive to create meaningful change and have a vision that’s anything but small.

  • What We Do

    As professional consultants, we survey, plan, design, engineer, administer, and inspect with a purpose: to positively transform the landscape of the communities we serve. From designing municipal projects to engineering new roadway systems, we empower progress, concept to construction.  Learn how we merge the practical and purposeful to move every client in the right direction. Learn more about our professional services.

  • Why We Do It

    Creating neighborhoods where families turn houses into homes. Designing a space that allows entrepreneurs to follow their dreams. Improving patient access to healthcare facilities. Our portfolio not only showcases a variety of projects, but also illustrates the relationships we’ve formed with clients and communities across the region.

Making a Difference.

When we aren’t surveying the land, drawing up plans, designing the landscape, or ensuring quality, we are establishing meaningful connections with our communities, which empower more sustainable results. With offices in Gainesville, Ocala, Jacksonville, and Fort Myers, Florida, our connections with the community keep us focused on client relationships and the positive influence our projects have. We stand behind our services and stand up for our clients.

We believe

The power of passion goes a long way. Where others see an undeveloped plot of land, we see a community where families grow and bond for generations – and that’s what we call passion. Learn more about our purpose that’s bigger than any project.
