Founded in Golden, Colorado in 1998, Baseline Engineering Corporation has become one of the leading engineering, planning, and surveying firms in the Intermountain West. We initially got our start by providing traditional civil engineering services for new infrastructure and land-use planning in a growing region. Since then, we’ve added expertise in sustainable water and wastewater treatment, public works projects, transportation, utilities, residential, large-facility site design, land surveying, landscape design, and permitting at all levels.
