Webster, Foster & Weston has obtained considerable experience in recreational-related projects. These projects are unique from other areas of civil engineering in that they are often composed of a variety of engineering fields, including traffic planning, road design, and site construction. The improvements selected must also be adapted to meet the aesthetics of the local environment. In many instances, the impact of the improvements to the local environment – including finding an acceptable location – are the most important concerns for both the client and the engineer.

Typical recreational projects that we have been involved in include the following:
