Full-service engineering and architecture, built on service and stewardship

We help clients achieve their vision as we mediate the built and natural environments

WBK is a team of land planners and urban designers, water and environmental scientists and ecologists, and civil, transportation, and structural engineers and infrastructure specialists. We partner with clients to develop and implement a shared vision through service and stewardship, bringing a high degree of expertise to municipal, county, state, federal, Indigenous, and private projects. We are mediators; creating a bond between the communities and places we shape and form, and the land, water, and environments we protect and restore.


Mediating the built and natural environment

The Bodwé Infrastructure Services branch offers civil engineering, planning, and environmental consulting for municipal, federal, Indigenous, and transportation clients. We work as full-service, multi-disciplinary teams across the Bodwé family of companies and in partnership with our waterways and ecosystems.


Creative problem solving to enrich space and place

We make notable impact on how people live and move in relationship with built and natural environments. The Buildings Services branch of the Bodwé Group partners with Indigenous, federal, and community clients to deliver full-service AE solutions and projects from planning and development through construction administration and occupancy.


Facilities, technology, and program management

For more than 10 years, Bodwé has provided contract support services to federal agencies as an extension of Seven Generations A+E design services. Today, our Federal Support Services branch is a significant and expanding focus for the Bodwé Group, with a field staff of dozens of experts serving diverse roles within federal agency teams.


Serving the complex needs of a range of clients


Wholly owned by the Pokagon Band since 2019, WBK is honored to serve tribal organizations. We are designing and repairing roadways, solving long-standing water drainage and flooding issues, assessing school facilities, engaging in community planning, and developing site plans for health clinics, community centers, schools, and government buildings.


WBK is increasingly partnering with federal agencies including the USACE, VHA, BIA, and NPS. Key to this work is our site planning and transportation design capabilities, as well as our water and environmental resources expertise. From trail system rehabilitation to dam assessments to ecosystem restoration, our federal past performance record is filled with projects that protect the earth.


Foundational to WBK from the beginning, our municipal and civil engineering team is honored by its long-term relationships with townships, cities, and counties. Often working as an extension of our client team, we are partners in creating and maintaining municipal site, utility, and stormwater infrastructure.


The transportation team at WBK Engineering are specialists in designing and permitting roadway reconstruction and rehabilitation projects, from local roads to complex highways. Whether we are modeling traffic, analyzing alternatives, designing roundabouts, or overseeing construction, we keep things moving.

Bridges & Structures

Working with Bodwé transportation and water resource engineers, our structural team embraces their responsibility for human safety and for the protection of natural ecosystems. We understand the dynamics between built structures and potential impacts to people and planet. We design efficient, effective, and durable solutions that fit the context of the community and environment.

Water & Dams

With recognized industry expertise in stormwater and flooding as well as natural riverine and manmade conveyance, Bodwé provides waterways analyses, flood studies, dam improvement and removal, and stormwater management design. And with every project, our team takes responsibility for protecting communities and natural ecosystems.

Site Development

For decades, WBK Engineering has partnered with municipalities and private clients in northeast Illinois to improve infrastructure and create community. As part of Bodwé, today our planning and development work crosses the country, serving local, federal and Indigenous clients as well, with an approach that integrates people, place, and planet.

Focused on benefits for people and planet

We are mediators. We create bonds between communities of people and the places we shape and form, the infrastructure serving those communities, and the land, water, and habitats we protect and restore.

Very rarely has there been an artist who hasn't said to me afterwards how beautiful this place is.
