OUR TEAM

Urban Design Group PC (UDG) provides a full range of services for all phases of civil engineering design including surveying, planning, preparation of construction plans, and construction administration. The UDG team had its beginnings in September 1981 and has established a position of leadership in cost efficient planning and design of local civil engineering projects through the application of sound engineering principles and state-of-the-art technologies.

The professionals of UDG have provided civil engineering and surveying services to a diverse group of private and public clients including residential and commercial developers, hospitals, universities, cities, counties, and military installations. We are very familiar with the technical requirements and effort required to complete accurate and cost effective projects for our clients.

One of the principals of UDG, John Noell, P.E., June Routh, P.E. or Laura Toups, P.E. is personally involved in all projects designed by UDG. As members of the Urban Land Institute, Congress for New Urbanism and the American Society of Civil Engineers, these professionals are sensitive to planning and design issues that arise in the creation of developments that are diverse, mixed-use and pedestrian friendly. It is a challenge in contemporary urban design to meet the needs of regulatory agencies, environmental sensitivity, market demands, community goals and creative design. UDG prides itself in being a team player, ready to communicate and cooperate to achieve the most successful project for the client and the community.

UDG, with a staff of twenty, is based in Austin, Texas, conveniently located to perform planning, engineering and survey work throughout Texas. UDG’s staff is experienced in the use of state-of-the-art surveying, CADD and GIS systems.
Urban Design Group has provided professional and responsive attention to all of its clients from the smallest jobs to the large multi-million dollar projects. The principals of UDG view their clients’ success as a personal responsibility, resulting in individual attention to detail and quality.
