It is our goal that we would develop a strong, long-term, working relationship with you. BLENDING COMPATIBLE SERVICES There are numerous factors putting pressure on today’s engineering firms and engineering professionals. Those include limited infrastructure funding, a limited professional talent pool, staffing demands on design-build projects, and a a changing workforce with values that emphasize a balance of work and personal life. Enginuity seeks to provide solutions for our clients and for professionals by providing three areas of focus to meet our clients’ needs: • Permanent Staffing/Staff Placement, • Staff Augmentation/Temporary Staffing, and • Traditional Engineering Consulting What is unique about the solutions that Enginuity provides is the resultant overlap of our blended services. These areas of overlap create flexibility for our clients and are further explained below:

1. Flexible Engineering Our consulting engineers can be directly available to you via our staff augmentation service or we can provide independent contractors to our clients. This allows us to provide for our clients short-term needs for projects that require immediate attention or for which a full-time position is not required, desired, or necessary.


RING...ENGINUITY 2. Knowledge Recruiting Our talent acquisition and staffing team can seek out professionals in the industry who are seeking full-time employment to find a challenging new position or potential promotion. Enginuity is different in this area because we have full-time engineers working in the industry. No other staffing company provides consulting services as part of their core business.

Floodplain Management is an evolving profession. What used to be a process of determining floodplain limits and managing development to those limits has now become a much more involved effort. Managing flood hazards now is a process of not only understanding the flood hazard itself, but also how entire river systems are affected by development and changes in the environment. In effect, a present day floodplain manager’s goal is finding ways to minimize impacts to the river system and fully realize the natural and beneficial functions of the floodplain corridor. Enginuity works within these guidelines to assist our clients with floodplain management challenges. Some of our key services include:

Colorado Floodplain Map Modernization Project, Various Colorado Counties, Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB)
