They call on us, because we are a trusted ally in their civil engineering endeavors.


While civil engineering is our main expertise, our teamwork is the catalyst of our success. At BF&S, our goal is to build lasting relationships in the communities where we live and work, with the people we work with, and the clients we serve. Our focus on team improves our performance and, as a result, increases our valued clients’ satisfaction. Ultimately, we are all in this together.

In 1961, Robert Butler, Ned Fairman, and Clifford Seufert achieved their vision of organizing an engineering firm with the highest level of integrity and excellence. The Butler, Fairman & Seufert partnership initially focused on providing survey, design, and construction services for bridge and road projects.

BF&S has since expanded the professional services to include water resources, environmental, site development, aviation, right-of-way, GIS, and parks and greenways. In addition to our Indianapolis Headquarters, we have added eight offices throughout Indiana. Our perseverance demonstrates that we have been able to manage leadership and ownership transitions while keeping our commitment to the fundamental values of honesty, professionalism, consideration, dedication, and accountability. As a result, we are recognized in the industry for our commitment to client service and excellence in delivering “Civil Engineering Solutions for Better Communities”.
