Ahead of the Curve
From the moment we opened our doors as an engineering company in 1919, Garver has established trust with our clients through quality designs and innovative bridge solutions. Our bridge team continues to exceed client expectations with dedicated project leadership and a high level of technical knowledge.

We understand the challenges that our clients face, and we find the best solutions. As transportation trends evolve and engineering practices advance, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve.

Garver is one of the few firms used by MDOT that can truly pull it all together. We know that when we turn a project over to Garver that we can expect an excellent quality product on schedule.
