Who we are

Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the Appian Consulting Engineers, PA website.  Please tour the site and contact us with any questions or if you would like any additional information.  Our Staff is available to answer questions you may have about Appian.  All you have to do is call or e-mail.

Since our founding in 1986, Appian has grown at a steady pace adding and retaining high quality staff and focusing on providing excellent services to our clients.

At Appian, every principal, including myself, is involved in projects on a daily basis, keeping us in tune with the state of the art and the needs of our clients.  Our Staff turnover rate is exceptionally low, providing high continuity from year to year and project to project.  Several clients have had the same senior professional as their primary contact over the years!  Both client and employee satisfaction with Appian remains excellent.


Appian is committed to moving forward in an industry which is re-developing much of its thinking rapidly.  When new approaches, products, analysis tools, and methods of design are developed, we investigate and learn about each as rapidly as possible.  The best ones, with the greatest likelihood of success, are made part of our toolbox of skills and information to assist our clients.  Following are some of the recent innovations and approaches adopted in the firm:

  • Green Site Development – Stormwater has been considered a liability in the past, and is now understood to be an asset, when handled properly.  The use of native landscapes, rain gardens, pretreatment areas, porous pavement, and other “Green” approaches will improve our environment, while decreasing our energy needs, and decreasing the damage caused by mishandling stormwater.

Service Commitment

Since our founding a quarter of a century ago, Appian has had a firm commitment to client service.  Initially, we primarily served area municipal agencies, however, that has grown to include school districts, hospitals, counties, and state government, as well as private developers.
Our service approach has helped us retain desirable clients through period of many years and multiple projects.  Many of our clients have been with us for ten to twenty-two years.

Public Health, Welfare & Safety

As a firm, we have a strong commitment to considering the public health, welfare, and safety on any design, study, and assessment. This focus has protected our clients, as well as their users, and we expect that benefit will continue throughout our future!
