Our projects encompass a wide spectrum of Civil Engineering and Land Surveying disciplines including Water System Design with an emphasis on slow-sand filtration facilities, waste water treatment systems, land application systems, sewer system design, stormwater treatment and disposal, traffic studies and roadway design, structural engineering and review, final and short platting, ALTA surveys, records of survey, topographic and boundary surveys, environmental cleanup, and others.

Our office is located in the heart of Coeur d’Alene at 1625 N. 4th St Ste 204. This allows us easy access to all parts of the city and to the freeway. We are proud to be located in the up-and-coming Midtown Area, a part of Coeur d’Alene known for seamlessly incorporating the urban sprawl of commercial business and the existing residential areas in a manner that upholds the integrity of the original footprint of the neighborhood. Our own building is a well recognized local fixture that consists of two Victorian style homes built in the early 1900’s connected by a newly constructed breezeway. Each of our work stations is equipped with a modern personal computer that is tied into a central server with redundant file protection. We have current versions of Microsoft Office products, AutoCAD Civil 3-D, Solidworks, and other pertinent design and administrative software. Tate Engineering consists of one Professional Engineer, two Professional Land Surveyors, one Survey Technician, two CADD Technician/Drafters, one two-man Survey Crew, and two Administrative Assistants.
Here in the Northwest, we have cultivated a lifestyle that embraces an appreciation for the outdoors, as well as a loyalty and devotion to family, friends, and to the community. At Tate Engineering, we embrace these values both in our personal and professional lives. As a team, we are enriched by the activities and traditions that the Northwest has to offer. Being involved in our community and supporting local businesses is a priority for us. We regularly participate in events benefitting local organizations and area branches of national organizations such as “fun runs,” walks, and organized bicycle events. We sponsor a youth soccer team and are also a corporate sponsor of events organized by locally owned and operated Bicycle Sales and Service, a Coeur d’Alene bike shop. We have provided “pro bono” and discounted engineering and surveying services for organizations like Habitat for Humanity of North Idaho, the Centennial Trail Foundation, and the Shasta Groene Charitable Trust – A Home for Shasta. Ernest Warner, P.L.S., of Tate Engineering, is an instructor at North Idaho College and members of our staff are annual participants in the job fair held on campus each spring. We also participate in various “career days” at area middle schools. We purchase office supplies, internet service, and printing services from local companies rather than nationwide chains. We enjoy living and working in this community and strive to do all we can to benefit our economy. We fully enjoy the Northwest lifestyle, which is why it is so important to us to help provide the services that develop and maintain the infrastructure that makes it all possible.
