Employer Quick Look

NV5, Inc.


We are publicly owned provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions to public and private sector clients. We focus on the infrastructure, construction, real estate, and environmental markets. The scope of our projects includes planning, design, consulting, permitting, inspection and field supervision, and management oversight. We also provide forensic engineering, litigation support, condition assessment, and compliance certification.

As the needs of our clients have evolved, we have grouped our capabilities into five core vertical service offerings:

  • infrastructure, engineering, and support services;
  • construction quality assurance;
  • public and private consulting and outsourcing;
  • asset management consulting; and
  • occupational, health, safety, and environmental consulting.

Historically, substantially all of our services were concentrated on the first two service sectors. We believe, however, that our three newer service offerings will become increasingly important to our business as we continue to grow through both organic expansion and strategic acquisitions.

We operate our business through a network of over 20 locations in California, Colorado, Utah, Florida, and New Jersey. All of our offices utilize our shared services platform, which consists of human resources, marketing, finance, information technology, legal, and other resources at our corporate headquarters. Our shared services platform is intended to optimize the performance of our business as we increase our scale and scope. By maintaining a centralized, shared services platform, we believe we can better manage our business, apply universal financial and operational controls and procedures, increase efficiencies, and drive lower-cost solutions.

We currently maintain a staff of approximately 439 employees, which includes approximately 168 licensed engineers and other professionals who provide a wide range of professional and technical solutions to our customers. Combined with our support technology and software, our professionals are equipped to quickly and effectively respond to the needs of our clients.

Our primary clients include U.S. federal, state, municipal, and local governments; military and defense clients; and public agencies. We also serve quasi-public and private sector clients from the education, healthcare, energy, and utilities fields, including schools, universities, hospitals, health care providers, insurance providers, large utility service providers, and large and small energy producers.

Strengthen and support our human capital. Our experienced employees and management team are our most valuable resources. Attracting, training, and retaining key personnel  has been and will remain critical to our success. To achieve our human capital goals, we intend to remain focused on providing our personnel with entrepreneurial opportunities to increase client contact within their areas of expertise and to expand our business within our service offerings. We will also continue to provide our personnel with training, personal and professional growth opportunities, performance-based incentives, including opportunities for stock ownership, and other competitive benefits.
