About Us


Wengell, McDonnell & Costello, Inc. (WMC) is a Connecticut based, privately owned consulting organization providing a full range of services to government, private and industry clients throughout Connecticut and western Massachusetts. The firm is certified by the Connecticut Department of Economic Development as a small business enterprise (SBE).

The three principals of the firm represent over eight-five years of hands-on project management, planning, design and construction management experience on projects ranging from feasibility studies to construction management of multi-million dollar projects.

Technical excellence and competence are first and foremost at WMC and we have been able to merge this philosophy with an exceptional blend of interpersonal relations and management skills. A philosophy reflected in the fact that each and every assignment is performed with the direct involvement of a principal of the firm.

Since our formation, WMC has earned a reputation for engineering excellence, innovation and completing projects on time and within budget. We are particularly sought by municipalities, State agencies and private clients for our community relations skills and for our sensitivity to local and environmental issues.

At WMC, we excel at building consensus with diverse community interests and creating an environment in which projects can be planned and completed to the satisfaction of all.

WMC specializes in civil engineering and infrastructure projects - transportation, environmental engineering and site planning. Within these broad areas of practice, the firm specializes in traffic studies, roadway and bridge design, construction management, hydraulics/drainage, dams, environmental evaluations and assessments, waste treatment design, sewer system planning and design, permitting, water supply systems, computer mapping and civil site planning.

Our multi-disciplined capabilities include structural, civil, environmental, sanitary, geotechnical and construction management personnel along with specialists in quality assurance and public presentations.

Other specific expertise available from WMC includes surveying, and pre-design subsurface utility location engineering.


When it comes to hiring the right engineering firm, more and more clients recognize that engineering expertise and competence are only part of the selection process. The ability to work together as partners is the other.

WMC is recognized by our clients to excel at both.

As a firm, WMC has distinguished itself as one with skills that reach well beyond engineering excellence. We enjoy a reputation for being a firm with an uncommon sensitivity to people and exceptional public relations skills. Our ability to work with groups, boards and individuals to build a consensus among diverse interests is unsurpassed, has earned us the respect and trust of our clients throughout the region, and is one of the reasons clients select WMC for continued services.

In addition, we are particularly skilled in taking complex data and presenting it in ways understandable to all. Through the clarity and sensitivity of our presentations, we enable our clients to transform their vision into the reality of successfully completed projects.


At WMC, we use the latest technology to stay abreast of advances in our fields of expertise.

We are committed to innovation and to harnessing the speed and accuracy of the computer. Over the years, the firm has constantly upgraded our computer systems and software, in order to maintain state-of-the-art technology and a competitive edge.

The benefits of our CADD expertise to our clients are numerous. From surveying and mapping to final design, clear, concise and accurate drawings are readily produced and easily modified to meet client needs. The result is time and money saved for clients.


At WMC, professionalism is competence born of experience and partnering with our clients. It is also foresight, thoroughness and vision. The principals and employees of WMC have extensive experience in our respective fields and are continually seeking to increase our knowledge through continuing education and successful project completion.

Comprehensive integrated planning, quality assurance, computerized design, management and budget control systems; and management accountability - these are the benefits that WMC offers.
