We Bring the Kitchen Sink

Designing the West since September 11, 1978, Summit was started in Tom Gallagher’s kitchen and soon moved to their first formal office at 241 Winter Street, Reno, NV.  

In The Beginning...

Our services focused solely on civil engineering design and land surveying. By 1982, we opened up our second office, in Elko, Nevada and by 1986 we expanded those services, adding geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and inspection, water rights surveying and photogrammetry.

The Driving Force

We serve our clients at every project phase from, permitting, geotechnical investigations, and surveying, to design, civil engineering, construction, materials testing and inspection. Our experts are the driving force to our client's success.

We are committed to providing our clients with the individual and professional attention that each deserves, as well as providing and implementing safety protocols and practices with a belief that safety is everyone’s responsibility.

Summit’s core values represent our staff’s professional and personal lives: 






Dedicated Staff

We cultivate and maintain a diverse staff dedicated to providing timely, complete, and accurate services while upholding professional and ethical standards. It is through these core values and beliefs that Summit has earned the respect and confidence of its clients, resulting in repeat business and customer referral.
