About Us

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. 

Intelligent, Intuitive, Inspired

Our solutions are intelligent, design is intuitive and results are inspired. By utilizing the latest software, our engineers will model your project in 3D CAD to ensure that your project is intelligent, intuitive and inspired from design to construction.

IN Engineering + Surveying is a multi-disciplinary professional firm offering state-of-the-art services by integrating Surveying, Planning, Engineering, and Building Design. We specialize in residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional construction and development projects—whether large or small. Based in Brockville, the company is ideally located to provide vital services throughout Eastern Ontario—including Kingston, Ottawa, Cornwall, Perth, Smiths Falls, and Kemptville.


A vibrant and modern company, IN Engineering + Surveying also stands on decades of experience and reliability. We recently acquired Collett Surveying Ltd., which provided surveying services for 35 years and can trace its history back to 1881. With over 100 years of service to the community, our vision is to lead our industries into the future by leveraging the latest techniques to identify discrepancies in engineering and providing an efficient methodology to attain cost efficiency with the stipulated time.
