Let Us Handle All Your Engineering and Surveying Needs

Since 1996, Hart-Frederick Consultants P.C. (HFC) has been providing professional engineering, land surveying, and planning services to many communities and private clients in East Central Iowa. We are experienced in a wide range of water, wastewater, drainage, surveying, subdivision design, planning, and transportation engineering projects.

Our team is organized into two teams—the civil/municipal/environmental engineering team and the surveying/land development team. Both groups work together and are assisted by our support staff in coordinating all projects.



They prepare designs and confer with IDNR and/or IDOT on design requirements, solicit all necessary and archeological clearances, and arrange plans and specifications for competitive bidding of the project. The team also provides construction administration, observation, and testing through the construction process.
