Experts in Water Resources Management

Goodwin & Marshall’s deepest level of expertise lies in the management of water resources and the complex nature of floodplain and watershed management in the civil engineering industry.

Founders Matthew Goodwin and Robert Marshall came from the Army Corps of Engineers, where both specialized in water resource management. One of the first skills Goodwin & Marshall engineers learn are the techniques and methods of working in and around floodplain regions.

This specialized knowledge allows our engineers to maximize aggressive engineering parameters and capitalize on opportunities to engineer the most efficient, cost-effective designs for our clients.
