Why Experience Matters
Government and private agencies usually are faced with the challenges of limited time and limited resources to develop projects. Successful projects require technical expertise, consistent application of rules, and consideration for the needs of those involved. The rules are complicated. The parties have divergent interests. Politics, economics, and emotions come into play. Our employees are hands-on, they know the rules, they have experience applying them, and they understand the various interests. The LTL-Schock Group personnel have built excellent working relationships with our past and present clients and because of that are regularly asked to speak and teach at industry‐related seminars and conferences.
