INTRODUCTION Ironside Engineering and Development, Inc. (lED) is a locally owned, full service, project manage- ment, civil engineering and surveying firm located in Show Low, Arizona. The firm was initially formed as a Gilbertson Associates, Inc. satellite office in 1997. The firm has experienced consistent growth since 1997 and was incorporated as IED in 2001.  Professional services now being provided include the complete spectrum of development services; project budgeting and programming, grant  applications, studies, master plans, program management, land and topographic surveying, presen- tation documents, civil engineering, construction staking, and construction administration.   SPECIALTY PROJECTS IED has been fortunate to be selected for projects which require our involvement from the preparation of applications for financial assistance, through construction administration and close  out .   We are familiar with working with boards, councils, committees, and commissions to help meet  project goals and objectives. IED understands accounting, procurement, open - meeting laws and other issues that are involved when developing projects for public entities.  Our experience has en- abled IED to remain current with the latest development standards and has resulted in close work- ing relationships with individuals in local, state, and federal agencies which are expected to become  involved in your projects.  DESIGN TOOLS All design documents are prepared using computer - assisted design in the form of AutoCAD Civil 3D Our design and quality control procedures increase flexibility and provide opportunity for valued  alternate design concepts in a timely manner. IED also utilizes computerized hydrology and  hydraulic models with flood routing routines available in - house.  Similar models are utilized for the  effective design of water and wastewater systems.  Since our team uses AutoCAD for preparation of project plans, the transfer of data required for design development will be accomplished with maximum efficiency.  Additional technology which IED maintains in - house includes; two full size  color plotters with full raster capabilities for presentation materials, a full size Xerox plotter/scanner, scanners, scheduling software, Microsoft Office, and AutoCAD Map. To ease in the transfer of information to and from our clients, IED has ZIP drives, CD writers and e - mail.  Our office is linked  with a Hewlett Packard server with the latest Norton Antivirus, for our and our Clients’ protection.   FIRM QUALIFICATIONS COMMUNITY  Our team is familiar with development for public agencies, such as Tribal Governments, School Districts, Cities, Towns and Counties and it is our goal to provide long term services for our cli- ents. IED has established itself as a leader in accomplishing development in the White Moun- tains of Arizona. Many of the projects that we have coordinated and designed have been with  accelerated construction schedules. Our firm recognizes the many constraints adversely effect- ing development in the area. Poor soils, shortened construction seasons, monsoons, cultural  finds and environmental sensitivity are all considered as projects are programmed and de- signed.  We take great pride and ownership in the projects we become involved with regardless  the extent of our role.  It is our philosophy to raise the standard in the area with high quality  projects that require little maintenance in the future. - ”.
