The Nederveld Beginning
Nederveld, Inc. was founded in 1977, specializing in land surveying. The guiding principle used by our founder Gordon Nederveld was “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Mr. Nederveld knew a company dedicated to service would need to exemplify servant leadership at all levels. He consistently reminded us that our ability to communicate technical knowledge at a level our clients understand will set us apart. These lessons have served us well since our beginning.
As the development process changed to include more civil design than simply survey work, the firm made its first significant move into a service other than land surveying. A civil engineering team was established to accommodate the growing land development needs of our clients. In the 80’s and 90’s Nederveld was a surveying and engineering company helping clients develop numerous sites all across West Michigan. When development trends and desires began to change from typical suburban tract housing to neighborhood and community design, the firm made another significant move into Land Planning, adding Architects and Landscape Architects to our team.
Expansion Into the Midwest and Beyond
In early 2008 we started with a small presence in Ann Arbor Michigan as our first office outside of West Michigan. This office would serve a growing demand for Land Surveying and Civil Engineering needs in Michigan. This was a challenging time of economic recession to open a new office, however our level of service quickly became noticed in the East Michigan market. The Ann Arbor office location continues to serve a strong base of land surveying and engineering clients in East Michigan.
In June of 2009 we opened our first out-of-state Forensic Engineering and Fire Investigation service center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Our commitment to service and our expertise in various areas of Forensic Engineering soon led to additional service center locations throughout the Midwest.
In August of 2020 our expansion moved west to Denver, Colorado, where OEC Forensics became part of Nederveld. Having a Rocky Mountain Service Center location brings national expertise with over 20 years of collision analysis experience to the Nederveld team. Read more about the History of OEC Forensics here.
In July 2021 we expanded our Forensic Engineering services with actionable HVAC solutions when First Point Consulting became part of Nederveld. Offering actionable HVAC solutions bring together a client experience of “white collar knowledge with blue collar know-how” to the Nederveld team.
