CHA Consulting, Inc. is currently seeking Entry Level Civil Engineers to join our various office locations across North America and Canada! Our growing Civil Engineeing teams include:



Airports are as diverse as the places we go. Whether it's a medium-hub commercial airport, small general aviation facility, or a military airbase, every destination is distinct, relying on specialized infrastructure and operating facilities. This uniqueness has guided our approach to aviation design and planning for more than 60 years. With knowledge that only comes from experience, we deliver personalized airside, landside and facility-related design and construction projects with minimal impact to airports and their travelers. Our in-depth understanding of state and federal regulations, as well as the technical requirements and challenges faced by modern airports, streamlines project delivery, ensuring standards are met on time and within budget. The result is a seamless travel experience.


Land Development

A well-executed project requires cooperation among the developer, regulatory agencies, local review boards, consultants, and the community. Careful consideration must be given to impacts on traffic, stormwater drainage, water and sanitary services, and the environment. With all those moving parts, a developer needs one resource that can plan a project tactically, design it cohesively, permit it seamlessly, and construct it successfully. We have the permitting, engineering and construction experience to expedite project approvals and deliver projects on time and on budget.



Transportation done right means safe and efficient movement of people and goods between locations. We aim to enhance our nation’s transportation infrastructure, ensuring goods are shipped safely, communities are strengthened, and the economy is enhanced. Our transportation specialists plan, design and help maintain and construct these most valued assets—including roads, bridges, railways, waterways, and multi-modal facilities—for public and private transportation owners, agencies and authorities. Whether an initiative involves a cost-effective rehabilitation or an innovatively funded major capital improvement, we provide the experience, creativity and expertise to improve mobility and safety.



Ensuring water is clean and safe is one of the most important services each community can provide. From the innovative to the conventional, we craft environmentally sound and cost-effective stormwater, water and wastewater projects, each designed while considering every unique environmental, water quality, permitability, or funding concern. Our experienced and highly skilled professionals are able to assess, plan, design, and construct required infrastructure while meeting increasingly stringent regulations.
