Engineering the West
Since 1978

Summit Engineering Corporation was founded in 1978 in Reno, Nevada, providing civil engineering design and surveying services to clients throughout Northern Nevada. 

Summit Engineering Corporation was started by Tom Gallagher and Don McHarg in Tom’s kitchen in Reno, Nevada in 1978, and they have been Engineering the West ever since. In the beginning, they provided civil engineering design and land surveying, but their vision of responsible, respectful development led to expanded services. By 1986 Summit had added geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and inspection and water rights surveying. Today, Summit also provides environmental management and photogrammetry to clients across the West from offices in Reno and Elko, Nevada.
