Engineering firm wins development awards

Engineering Surveys and Services recently received Professional Development awards from the Missouri Society of Professional Engineers, the only organization in the state that represents all engineering professionals.
Clifford Jarvis, president of Engineering Surveys and Services, accepted the award during a ceremony July 25. It is the highest honor given to a firm involved in the private practice of engineering (consulting).
To be considered for the award, a firm must complete a 10-page nomination form. A selection committee consisting of six professional engineers in private practices reviews the forms and selects the winner.
“They were judged to be excellent,” MSPE Director of Operations Cherie L. Bishop said of Engineering Surveys and Services. The awards are not given every year, Bishop said; “most times, the award is given to the most deserved firms.”
Engineering Surveys and Services specializes in civil, environmental and geotechnical engineering. It has offices in Columbia, Jefferson City and Sedalia.
Professional licensure is important in engineering. Only professional engineers are allowed to work on construction projects. “100 percent of our engineers are eligible to be registered or have registered,” Jarvis said. “In order to be eligible, one must pass the exam. And before taking the exam, you must have a four-year college degree and four years work experience.”
Bishop points out that Engineering Surveys and Services has developed policies that help its engineers become better. “First, they encourage newly hired engineers to obtain engineer licensure,” she said. “Second, they encourage continuing education by both offering courses in their offices and paying for their engineers to take courses externally.”
