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.

Infrastructure Services

Mitigating 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.

Federal Support Services

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.

MARKETS

Our teams work across markets and project types

Indigenous

Bodwé Group is part of Mno-Bmadsen and wholly owned by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi. Our mission is to serve the more than 6,000 Pokagon citizens through growing the economy and legacy of the Band and our commitment extends to more than 50 Indigenous clients as well as a multitude of partners and friends from coast to coast.

Federal

Focusing on clients that offer us preference as a result of our tribal ownership by the Pokagon Band is essential to our growth. Through our 8(a) contracts and other set-asides, the Bodwé Group has successful past performance on hundreds of projects for many federal departments and agencies, and our Federal Support Services business grows significantly every year.

Municipal

With experience that extends more than 25 years, our municipal and civil engineering team is proud of its long-term relationships with townships, cities, and counties. Often working as an extension of our client team, we are partners in the design, construction, maintenance, and monitoring of infrastructure for municipal sites, roads, utilities, and stormwater management.

Transportation

Our transportation engineering team members 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, the Bodwé Infrastructure Services branch keeps things moving.

Bridges & Structures

Working with Bodwé transportation and water resource engineers, our structural team embraces their responsibility for human safetyand 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.

Healthcare

Core to our Buildings Services capabilities and expertise, Bodwé healthcare experience spans over a decade and includes projects with tribal partners, federal agencies, and private clients. Our teams have designed and programmed campus master plans, VA hospital renovations and expansions, large-scale IHS primary care facilities, tribal community clinics, and more.

Education

Teams across Bodwé have comprehensive experience with campus planning, site development, educational and athletic facilities, student dorms, and staff housing. Over the past several years, our partnership with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and Education has expanded from condition assessments to building design and site development to modernizing federal design standards.

Housing

Our housing work is as diverse as the clients we serve. The Bodwé family of companies has experience that includes suburban neighborhood development, urban lofts, large mixed-use residential, and tribal housing, including many forms of supportive housing. This work is core to the Bodwé mission and our commitment to sustainable culture and communities.

Site Development

For decades, WBK Engineering has partnered with municipalities and private clients to develop sites and create community. Today, our Building Services and Infrastructure Services teams are engaged in planning and development work that crosses the country, serving local, federal, and Indigenous clients with an approach that integrates people, place, and planet.

Community

While serving clients and end users at project sites from coast to coast, we also serve the places where we live and work. We offer our time and financial support to community organizations, and we welcome the opportunity to engage with partners on buildings, recreation, and site development projects that support and uplift people, culture, and community.
