EDI Survey Department Expanding 
Since 2010 EDI's Survey Department has nearly doubled in size, and is currently poised to add even more staff as the team services contracts for an increasingly diverse portfolio of clients. Both as prime or subconsultant, EDI surveyors are providing services for governmental project owners such as IDOT, Illinois Tollway, Chicago Department of Water Management, Chicago Public Schools, Chicago Department of Community Development, and the Public Building Commission of Chicago. EDI's private sector survey work has also grown, with major retailer and energy providers calling upon EDI surveyors for development projects throughout the Midwest.
