In this age of “Superheroes,” it can be easy to disregard the many heroes that we cross paths with on a daily basis, nurses, teachers, police officers, construction workers, and engineers. Civil engineers and land surveyors play a vital role in managing the infrastructure (e.g. buildings, roads, water systems, utilities) that our society needs in order to function.  We can easily take for granted the roles that engineers play in society every time we swim in the ocean or drink a glass of water.

Katie Gipson Ware - Country Girl to City Engineer
At Rodriguez, our engineers, surveyors, and construction inspectors play a vital role in managing the infrastructure that operates in the city of Philadelphia and the surrounding region.  We specialize in collecting data and applying specialized knowledge to make the best-informed decisions to manage infrastructure and creating sustainable communities.

Engineers and surveyors may do amazing things but we are typically challenged to illustrate these things in a way that the general public can easily understand and appreciate.  To help overcome this challenge we have partnered with Dylan Bolden, a talented comic artist and illustrator that recently graduated from the Moore College of Art & Design.  Over the course of the summer we will launch a series of infographics that will tell the story of our team and the important work we do.

Enjoy our first story on Katie Gipson Ware, a Country Girl Turned City Engineer.
