Since 1881

IN Engineering + Surveying can trace it’s roots back to 1881 with the founding of the office by Willis Chipman, one of the first consulting engineers in Upper Canada. 

Our office provides integrated engineering and surveying services for residential, commercial and industrial projects. Our experienced team will approach any project, no matter the size, with our professionalism and experience. 


“Andrew is a local engineer and I can’t overstate how valuable his assistance has been. The plans, the specifications and design for the rebuild, including the 3D images on the screen, all the result of Andrew’s volunteer efforts.”

“Andrew is dedicated and willing to think outside the box. He was amenable to the many changes I wanted to make as we worked together on a heritage project in Delta, and provided amazingly insightful expertise. He was prompt in getting drawings back to me, often sending revisions back within the day. I would recommend IN Engineering to anyone working on complex projects, as even the most novice of project managers can rely on Andrew to keep them on the right track. Thank you!”

Rowan Brewer

“Arrived promptly when requested. Listened and noted the scope of my project, then discussed and suggested ways to improve the project. These suggestions led to savings in time and expenses. Prints were very well done and easy to navigate. I will be using Andrew’s services again on upcoming projects.”

Jonathan Cross

“Andrew’s Engineering work on our Five Mile Lighthouse Rebuild project has astonished our whole committee. He is very thorough, precise, and timely on all accounts, and always willing to go that ‘extra mile’. Andrew’s pleasant disposition and sincere interest and involvement in our Brockville Community, position him as a solid team player on our Five Mile Lighthouse Rebuild Committee. We are very fortunate to have Andrew Melchers on our team!”

Darlene Burns

“I’ve worked with Andrew on a number of projects. His ingenuity and creativity never cease to amaze me. He has found solutions for the most perplexing problems during a kitchen redesign, recovering the majestic beauty of a 100 year old porch and it-has-to-look-like-its-been-here-forever bathroom renovation. His insights have saved me boot loads of money. I am a hard task master but Andrew has never failed to deliver. I recommend him for any residential renovation or simply consultation to ensure you’re on the right track.”
