SINCE 1971

About Us

In 1971, James J. Chiniche, (JJC) opened a Civil Engineering and Land Surveying company in Bay St. Louis. His intent was to provide the residents of Hancock county a viable option for Civil Engineering and Land Surveying services. His objective was to keep costs and overhead low to help clients achieve their project goals without over spending on soft costs. This philosophy started in 1971 is still implemented here today.

In 2014, JJC entered a new partnership with his son, Jason. Jason graduated from Mississippi State with a Civil Engineering degree in 2001, along with an MBA in 2009 from the University of Southern Mississippi. Prior to the passing of James J. Chiniche in April of 2016, Jason had become Principal Owner and Project Manager. Jason has made it his goal to continue the legacy of providing Hancock County and surrounding areas the same viable option for Engineering and Surveying Services. He has expanded the scope of work to provide many disciplines of Engineering and Surveying, while still striving to keep costs and overhead low to help our clients.
