Public Involvement

Jon Bogert explains the Cedar Rapids flood Mitigation Project alignment

Public engagement is the centerpiece to any successful infrastructure project. Anderson Bogert has developed a comprehensive community engagement model that pushes public input beyond the traditional project open house. With a full-time Public Involvement Coordinator, our approach translates engineering to understanding. We are a civil engineering firm that understands the opportunities, challenges, and rewards to engaging the public. We understand how to communicate and connect with disconnected individuals. We know the value of leaving no stone unturned when it comes to incorporating the public's ideas into our civil designs.

Our complete package of public involvement services seamlessly integrates project planning, design, and construction into one process that is transparent and engaging.
