Public Works

Improving the Quality of Our Communities

From master planning to funding to sustainable design, there’s a lot of work that goes into public works projects that improve the quality of life of the communities we are a part of. That is why we tailor our solutions with stakeholders to work safely by collaborating across locations and practice areas through the entire project life cycle. But above all, we understand that you don’t just need a problem solver, you need a partner.

A partner who sees the big picture. Since 1913, that’s exactly what we’ve been.

Customer Satisfaction

We let our customers speak for us

“ As a Landman, I have worked on projects with T Baker Smith for many years. I continue to utilize their services because they are professional, trustworthy and assist me, the client, in finding the most efficient resolution for varying types of challenges whether it’s surveying or permitting. ”

Carol M. Sledge, CPL
“ What keeps me coming back to T. Baker Smith is the dedication that Kenny and his team exhibits every day; it is one of the most valuable things to me. I cannot recall one time TBS did not follow through on getting what we asked for. You get what you pay for, and with TBS, we do not have to sit and babysit or redo the work. ”
Craig Guidry

“ We have worked previously with other consultants and find that TBS’ reliability and capability are superior to their competition. They are always available to assist us at Rebecca, Magnolia, Coulon, Acadia, St. Bridget and Evergreen Plantations as well as the Bayou Lafourche Freshwater Reintroduction project, by providing surveying and modeling support. ”
