About Us

Rocky Mountain Engineering (RME) L.L.C. was founded in 1997 on the principle of providing quality engineering and surveying coupled with excellent service.  Since that time, the firm has prospered on that standard.  In 1999, RME acquired Snake River Surveying, Inc. (SRS), a surveying firm in American Falls, Idaho, and continued to operate two offices.  In January 2001 RME became known as Rocky Mountain Engineering and Surveying (RMES) to more accurately reflect that acquisition.  In August of 2001, RMES merged with Shurtliff Engineering, acquiring their accounts and employees.  In 2011, RMES opened a full service branch in Williston, North Dakota.

Today, our company has grown to become one of the largest engineering and surveying firms in Southeast Idaho; although our work has been focused throughout the west.  Our technical staff consists of engineers, surveyors, and design/drafting technicians.  Our firms experience has us uniquely positioned to provide a wide variety of quality consulting, excellent service, and economical value to our clients.
