Years of Experience in the Columbia Gorge Area

At HRK Engineering, LLC, we have been helping contractors and construction companies in Oregon and Washington since 2015. We have extensive experience working with unique landscapes and can help you navigate all the complexities of building in this area. 

In 2023, HRK Engineering acquired Gorge Engineering, a local civil engineering company that has been in the Columbia River Gorge since 1980. Both HRK and Gorge Engineering have always focused on civil, geotechnical, and environmental engineering, as well as construction surveying, material testing, special inspections, and construction management.

Our civil engineering services are designed to make your next construction project more cost-effective while saving you time. By providing you with an accurate assessment of your land, we can help you avoid costly mistakes that can impact the structural integrity of your project. We can also help ensure that your project is environmentally responsible and complies with all local land use policies.
