Our Expansion

In 2012, Susan partnered with Catherine MacAskill. Catherine, whose background includes over two decades in yachting and business coaching, is a business management expert who excels in creative marketing, critical issue resolution, business sales and business practice innovations.

With this new team, Susan and Catherine discovered an unfilled niche in the marketplace, property owners who require an engineering firm to meet governmental compliance mandates. They moved quickly into this speciality, which evolved into them becoming compliance experts for properties dealing with government mandates and state/federal regulations across four areas: marina National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) compliance, construction NPDES inspections, Sanitary Sewer Evaluations Surveys (SSES), and Stormwater 5-year renewal certifications.

As these new facets of the firm took off, Catherine and Susan created a turnkey solution for their clients, delivering all engineering-related services in one place. The firm is now a leader in project management, overseeing and managing engineering design, permitting, inspection services, contractor management and certifications.

Together, they streamlined the engineering inspection processes, while developing the firm’s compliance knowledge and expertise. Holland Engineering has developed into a leader in NPDES compliance, Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Surveys and stormwater certifications, recognized by State, County and City authorities as providing plans, reports and calculations that meet the most stringent requirements.

All project and engineering-related services, from inception to completion, are available in-house and managed by a team of experienced professionals. Additionally, the team’s compliance knowledge and expertise ensure that clients have total peace of mind since the firm can now handle all of the regulations related to their properties.

Holland Engineering is a full-service firm, providing services from civil engineering design to engineering inspections, as well as state and county-required certifications.

We pride ourselves on execution, integrity, and oversight, plus Holland Engineering is the only firm in South Florida offering the unique combination of Engineering Design, Complete Project Management, and Engineering Inspections and Certifications — all under one firm.

Our inspection process is unique in that licensed engineers are always involved in site inspections as their knowledge is essential to the services we provide. We use our engineering expertise throughout the inspection process to provide professional project management, oversight, follow-up, and quality control.

The firm has a proven track record of delivering first-class civil engineering design and engineering compliance solutions for property owners, across a variety of projects, under intense deadlines and budgetary pressures. More than 95% of our customers are repeat business. While consistently excelling at problem-solving, Holland Engineering takes pride in providing clients with superior and uniquely tailored services across the board.

Highly adaptable and versatile, Susan and Catherine are a powerhouse duo ready to take on new projects and challenges of all types. They excel at pinpointing clients’ specific needs, understanding the unique nature of each project, and responding quickly to all situations. Leading teams with the highest standards of business practices, the core values of transparency, integrity, and excellence are at the cornerstone of their business.

Our clients benefit from their specialized approach when negotiating construction bids directly with pre-selected contractors on behalf of the client and having pre-construction design meetings with selected contractors. This saves time, of course, but also allows us to find cost-driven solutions to construction concerns before finalizing plans.

By consistently delivering services of exceptional quality, integrity, and all-around value, Susan and Catherine have built long-term client relationships, helping Holland Engineering become a top Florida engineering firm.

Together, Catherine and Susan lead a team of engineers, technicians project managers and inspectors who pride themselves in delivering excellent results for the clients. Additionally, Holland Engineering only works with sub-consultants and vendors who share our core values and work ethic.
