CRANSTON has been leveraging its diverse civil and structural engineering, landscape architecture, planning, and surveying expertise for more than half a century to make communities across the heart of the Southeast safer, healthier, more accessible, better connected, resilient, sustainable, fun, and prosperous.
Over the years, the firm has built a successful legacy as a trusted partner in leading collaborative, transformative change and guiding its project partners and communities through even the most complex infrastructure challenges.
Every day, CRANSTON empowers communities to thrive.
The CRANSTON team shares a wealth of experience – from planning new residential communities, maintaining historic canal systems and dams, and designing sustainable parks and other recreational infrastructure, to serving municipalities, improving educational systems, expanding hospital facilities, and upgrading roads and bridges – with its project partners and the communities it serves.
It’s a collective experience that allows the team to collaborate confidently with the firm’s project partners – partners who share CRANSTON’s community-driven mission – to design infrastructure solutions with a level of collaborative excellence that combines creativity, innovation, sustainability, and integrity.
CRANSTON grew out of a merger in 1967 between Baldwin Engineering Company and Cranston Associates. The combined firm, headed by CRANSTON founder Craig Cranston, became Baldwin & Cranston Associates and, eventually, CRANSTON.
CRANSTON now serves its project partners and communities from full-service offices in Augusta, Ga., Charleston, S.C., and Hilton Head, S.C.
