Larry Fleis, PE and Steve Vanden Brink, PE, two Grand Rapids civil engineers and friends, started Fleis & VandenBrink in 1993. Today the firm has nearly 300 employees, nine offices, and we’re still growing. The employee-owned, multi-disciplined civil engineering and architecture firm has become a one-stop shop for infrastructure planning, design, and construction. The firm’s steady growth can be attributed to several things – hiring good people, doing good work, and having good client relationships.
Since the beginning, we have invested in our people and provided them with opportunities, tools, and technology to be the best. We created a demand for our services and expertise by providing clients with exceptional service, innovative solutions, and great advice on how to fund projects.
F&V is recognized for its expertise as a strategic partner, the leader for design, construction & operation of projects, and the home for top professionals who are making a difference.
Our team is made up of civil engineers, architects, water resource specialists, landscape architects, geologists, environmental scientists, surveyors, GIS specialists, inspectors, field technicians, construction managers, professional emergency managers (PEMs), operations specialists, and administrative support.
Our people show dedication, creativity and passion for their projects, clients and co-workers because they know quality begins with them.
