From Our Website

Our history began 1984 with our Incorporation as a consulting engineering firm specializing in all aspects of Civil Engineering. We're located in Norwich at 317 Main Street. We are a medium size firm and thus we have the staffing available to be responsive to our clients and to involve the direct participation of our principals. Throughout our history, we have grown in our consulting services to include civil, structural, inspection and surveying for numerous private, institutional, public, commercial and industrial clients.


CLA Engineers offers a variety of geotechnical engineering services. The most common service sought is sub-surface exploration and a geotechnical report regarding a potential project site. Our firm has performed extensive design and analysis for a wide variety of projects including single-family dwellings, power facilities, factories, commercial arenas, metal buildings, recycling centers, et cetera. Our office has performed extensive field review of existing structures in order to determine structural/geotechnical integrity, as well as soil inspection during construction for conformance to geotechnical advisement.


Through our history at CLA providing engineering and consulting services, we have prided ourselves on the belief that cooperation, coordination and communication are as important as our technological expertise. Our composition of personnel enables us to take a project from the conceptual and planning stages through the design and finished construction project. We are able to assist our private clients in understanding the regulations of Local, State & Federal agencies in the planning phase in order to more efficiently design the project and avoid costly delays.


Many of our structural projects involve the design of new building foundations and structural systems using structural steel, reinforced concrete, masonry and engineered wood framing systems. These engineering projects often require special knowledge of antiquated building systems and materials, and an understanding of how these materials and systems interact with modern structural systems. Our knowledge of the building code provisions that apply to existing and historic structures allows us to recommend efficient and code compliant alternatives for building renovation and restoration projects.
