W & A Engineering About Us


W&A Engineering (formerly Williams & Associates) was founded by Jon Williams nearly two decades ago, with the idea of establishing an all-encompassing land planning and design firm in Northeast Georgia to serve its growing communities. Since then, the company has grown into a multi-disciplined, national engineering firm with completed projects in more than 45 of the United States, and acting as the on-call civil engineers and consultants for economic development for over 35 Georgia communities, with completed projects in 75+ counties and counting. The firm’s five main departments include Civil Engineering, Surveying, Landscape Architecture, Traffic Engineering and Economic Development, plus Soil and Environmental Consulting. Because of the company’s growth over the years and the importance of his current team, Williams decided, as of November 1, 2017, to rename the company to W&A Engineering to be more in line with the size and growth objectives of the company and to better reflect its mission:

W&A Engineering improves communities with innovative design, effective and efficient engineering, and professional service. Building better communities, one client at a time.

Since its inception, the firm has grown from a one-person operation into a diverse company of talented civil engineers, traffic engineers, surveyors, landscape architects, economic development consultants, planners, soil scientists and support staff. Providing superior customer service through open communication, accessibility, respectfulness, and honesty is the main service objective of the firm. W&A Engineering takes great pride in providing sound advice to either help assure a prosperous financial return or prevent a potentially poor investment, for each of its clients.

Through expert knowledge and understanding of the planning process, W&A Engineering is creating future standards of excellence in engineering and design. W&A Engineering pledges to provide support for each of its clients in the quest for successful community growth and thoughtful economic development.


W&A Engineering is an energetic and dedicated team of highly skilled, solution-oriented civil and traffic engineers, surveyors, landscape architects, economic development consultants, and planners. We strive to balance the needs of our clients with the needs of the community in order to both improve the environment and provide quality projects.
