We have two primary responsibilities:
- To plan, design and manage the construction of infrastructure improvements, including transportation, water, wastewater, stormwater and park projects.
- To review and inspect the construction of public improvements in private developments.
We have a staff of nine located at the Public Works Administration Building. You can generally find us inspecting and managing one or more of the construction projects underway in Redmond. Engineering is responsible for most of the capital improvement projects identified in the City's Public Facilities Plan and for replacement of old, undersized and worn out infrastructure.
