Aligned Incentives

Engineering Design Services aligns incentives with clients, working together towards common goals through lump sum contracts, eliminating change orders. Unlike most firms with Time and Material contracts that prioritize billable hours, our Lump Sum approach ensures efficient, accurate project completion. EDS mitigates risk by having never issued a change order, safeguarding clients from disruptions.


Engineering Design Services is actively engaged in the local community. We do our best to give back to everyone around us and enjoy interacting with the community in every way possible. From golf events to serving on the Industrial Advisory Committees a the local Universities, EDS will always find a way to lend a hand.
