North Woods Engineering’s site and civil engineering services include the design and analysis of the infrastructure and utilities that make our Adirondack communities thrive.  Our site development and design philosophy is rooted in a respect for the environment while balancing the needs and goals of our clients.  Our staff takes pride in providing sound technical solutions, that are well communicated, and meet the needs of our clients.

Our office is located 5 miles from the Adirondack Park Agency’s and the Department of Environmental Conservation Region 5 headquarters in Ray Brook.  We are well versed in the seemingly complex rules, regulations and permitting process that the DEC and APA requires.  We routinely work on projects that require permits from these state agencies and have a solid working relationship with many of permit administrators and review staff.
