Thanks for stopping by! 

You might have heard people say we offer great services (which we appreciate!), but we also have a great story you may not have already heard.  It speaks to who we are as a company and what we can do for you, whether you benefit from our work as an end user, seek employment with us, or are contemplating doing business with us -- which we strongly believe you should!

You see, Commonwealth was established in 1988, following the closing of another engineering firm's Jackson, Michigan, office.  The founders had worked closely together on domestic and foreign electric transmission and distribution projects for many years out of the Jackson office.  Rather than leave Jackson, Commonwealth's founders left and company and took action to incorporate under a name that was -- and remains -- well known and respected in the electric power industry.  The group devoted itself to structuring a new employee-owned company with the intent of upholding the previous Commonwealth Associates, Inc.'s reputation for providing high-quality engineering and consulting services.  Other talented individuals, many of whom had worked previously with the founders, were brought in to lend their expertise.  The new company flourished, and Commonwealth opened another office in the state of Washington in 1992 to serve clients in the western United States.  Another principal office was opened near Atlanta, Georgia, in 2008.

Today, Commonwealth's staff of approximately 200 professional and technical employees represents one of the most skilled, experienced technical resources available to analyze, plan, design, and construct electric power delivery projects.  In addition to licensed engineers and engineering specialists, we have experts in environmental sciences, licensing, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), surveying, right-of-way acquisition, and construction management, many of whom have more than 20 years of experience in their fields.  Many of our professional engineers are active members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, American Society of Civil Engineers, Edison Electrical Institute, and National Society of Professional Engineers, which allows interaction with our peers and gives us access to problem-solving resources directed to the T&D industry.

Commonwealth's methods and tools have evolved over the years to incorporate emerging technologies and meet new challenges, but our devotion to engineering excellence has remained the same.

As we like to say, "At Commonwealth, you can Connect with Confidence"!
