Architecture and Engineering
What's New in Engineering
Architecture and Engineering is the execution of IDNR's Capital Construction Program. This execution includes liaison with the Capital Development Board, and project review and management. The formation of IDNR has expanded the role of the Division of Architecture and Engineering, as our staff begin to provide project liaison and management to our larger agency on future appropriated projects. In addition to standard contracted projects, the Division also manages the Heavy Equipment Crew, conducts in-house design, and provides technical assistance through our staff architects and engineers.
Heavy Equipment Crew
The Department of Natural Resources Heavy Equipment Crew is a self-contained unit under the direction of the Division of Engineering that works on small earth-related projects at DNR sites, with its primary emphasis on waterfowl projects. The crew was initially sponsored by waterfowl groups that saw the Department's need to react to waterfowl levee repairs and new developments. Over the years, the Heavy Equipment Crew (HEC) has been very cost effective, and able to react to immediate needs when they arose.
