Land Surveying

“Our good friend recommended the firm of Redniss & Mead, and after soliciting bids, we chose them – not based solely on price, but on the professionalism that they exhibited from the outset. The survey that they prepared for us was unmatched in detail, and complemented our overall submission to the town. The quality of the documentation enhanced the credibility of the overall project, and helped us speed through the approval process. Further, their level of service “after the sale” has been consistent with their professional approach. We cannot sing higher praise than we do for the people of Redniss & Mead.”

Richard and Maria Barbour

I have always been impressed with the attentiveness, knowledge of local laws, codes and requirements, and reliability exhibited by the Redniss & Mead team. The relationships that Redniss & Mead has established within the industry and the local town departments have aided in the approvals and success of my firm’s projects. I look forward to future successful partnerships with Redniss & Mead.”

“My husband and I were interested in obtaining a survey of our property. This was our first experience requesting and reading a survey. We did not know where to begin. We contacted Redniss & Mead and were immediately connected with Jorge Pereira. Jorge was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. He explained the steps, options and costs involved in a clear manner. We were always able to reach out and have all of our questions answered and concerns addressed. The team that came out to install the stakes was very courteous. Once the work was complete they explained what had been done and answered any questions we had for them. We have enjoyed working with Redniss & Mead and would highly recommend their services.”

Civil Engineering

“There are so many good things to say about Redniss & Mead that I’m not sure where to begin . . . Perhaps with the breadth of expertise they bring to their clients, and consistent responsiveness to clients’ needs: Redniss & Mead has been essential to the success of every project on which we have worked together, from initial concept, through its contributions in achieving zoning approval, and afterward providing excellent design and construction site services over the course of a project, and finally, project completion and closeout. The staff is personable, knowledgeable, and unfailingly cooperative in meeting the Owner’s and the project’s needs; Redniss & Mead distinguishes itself at every stage of property development – it is the best!”

“We have worked with Redniss & Mead on several commercial and residential projects now and I can highly recommend them as they have shown a high degree of responsiveness, attention to detail and professionalism.”

“We have recently completed the planning, design and construction of a seventeen acre campus for the Winston School in Norwalk. The selection of Redniss & Mead at the very start of the planning process was a critical component of the project’s overwhelming success. The topographically challenged site was populated with a designated water course and multiple wetland areas. Although these could have potentially significantly delayed the project, the environmental and planning permitting processes were completed in a few short months due in no small part to both the timely and accurate development of the site design as well as the universal respect for the quality of their work at City Hall. Throughout the project, beginning with Craig Flaherty during the initial phase, and carried out by Lawrence Posson and Lou DiMarzo, every request and detail was attended to in a professional and courteous manner. During the construction phase of most projects, field conditions will sometimes create a need for on site design work. In addition, surveying needs are always ongoing. Delays in responding to these site meetings and or layout requests can significantly delay, and therefore increase the cost of a project. This was never an issue with Redniss & Mead represented by Lawrence and Lou during construction. Their response times were as short as we have ever experienced. During our thirty eight years managing projects, we have worked with a large number of civil engineering and surveying firms. Without question, Redniss & Mead ranks among the top five in our experience.”

“I have been working with Redniss & Mead on a Condominium/Townhouse development in Greenwich for approximately 6 months. Being a retired senior aerospace executive my experience and therefore performance expectations were very high. I am happy to say that the people working with me at Redniss & Mead exceeded my expectations in all areas. They are knowledgeable, inventive, professionals with an amazing work ethic. Additionally, they are customer oriented, very responsive, and team players and that makes a successful project. It has been a pleasure to work with the Redniss & Mead Co.” 

Peter M Buccieri

“We have been developing multi-family rental projects over the past 25 years. One of the most complicated and challenging projects we have tackled has been our downtown Stamford project, 75 Tresser. Redniss & Mead was critical to this project’s success. They steered the project through the approval process, and performed the site engineering on a site which is bounded by 2 State roads . It goes without saying they are experts at what they do. More important, we like working with them because they are good people, who deliver a buildable product on time. We would be happy to work with the firm again.”

Andy Montelli

“I have employed Redniss & Mead on several projects over the past twelve years. In all cases I have been 100% satisfied with their work and the final outcome on each project. I have been consistently impressed with their professionalism, the technical knowledge of their staff, and their understanding of local laws and requirements. I have also been impressed with — and believe my projects have benefited from — the positive relationships Redniss & Mead has cultivated within various city and state departments. I would, without reservation, recommend Redniss & Mead for any Civil Engineering, planning and zoning or survey project within their service area.”

Greg Ohman

“We have been clients of Redniss & Mead for 50 years. We believe that the firm offers us many advantages, including the ability to unify site planning, zoning analysis, and civil engineering services. This coordination has resulted in clear, timely decisions and implementation. The collegial atmosphere within Redniss & Mead makes the tough road of development much easier to navigate.”

Planning & Zoning

“I’ve worked with Redniss & Mead for over twenty years; first as a Land Use Attorney with Cummings & Lockwood focusing on Connecticut and Fairfield County in particular, then as counsel to a family-owned land management company, and now on behalf of one of the largest developers in the Northeast. Redniss & Mead and specifically the people there have been trusted partners. Innovative thinking, top-notch designs, and invaluable local knowledge are some of the reasons I will continue to bring my toughest projects to them.”

They have always been great to have on the team as they are very knowledgeable regarding current code and have good relationships with the municipalities. I have always been satisfied with their work and would recommend them without hesitation for civil engineering, surveying and planning and zoning work.”

“Since 1975 I have utilized Redniss & Mead for various projects and would not hesitate to recommend them for surveying, civil engineering and planning projects, large or small. Not only to have professional expertise, but they know how to work respectfully and effectively with public officials, other professionals, and entrepreneurs. They know how to get your project to the finish line in a timely and cost effective manner. I have also been greatly impressed with Redniss & Mead’s community spirit, integrity and character as demonstrated by their pro-bono work over decades for nonprofit organizations for which they have willingly provided services and advocated for in public forums.” 

Tom Osterman

“Our company, an owner of valuable forest and development land, has used Redniss & Mead with great satisfaction for two generations of our management. This includes land use planning, surveying and mapping, guiding and supporting applications to Town and State land use agencies, civil engineering for residential infrastructure and direction of reconstruction of a 90-year old dam. The teams we have worked with are intelligent, efficient, reliable and informed on engineering and regulatory issues. The surveys, plans and exhibits they prepare demonstrate the highest standard of competence. As spokesmen before regulatory agencies and witnesses in litigation, they are persuasive and respected by the tribunals, and their teams have worked effectively with lawyers, scientists, foresters and other engineers on complex projects.”

Without question, Redniss & Mead’s service over the years has consistently been the “gold standard” in providing us professional services within our various project schedules.
