What our clients are saying

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

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.

I have worked with Redniss & Mead on many projects over the past ten years. 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.

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.
