About IMS Infrastructure Management Services
Background: IMS is an established engineering firm with a 35 year history of providing infrastructure management solutions for state and local agencies across North America. We serve as an independent, trusted advisor to agencies of all sizes, and we are committed to helping agencies better spend taxpayer dollars in managing their transportation infrastructure. We specialize in developing practical pavement management and asset management solutions.
Technology-focused: In order to provide cost-effective solutions to our clients, IMS embraces and invests in new technologies. We deploy state-of-the-art, geocentric data acquisition systems – including LiDAR and 3D imaging systems – to rapidly and accurately assess the condition of transportation infrastructure. Our engineering team uses this information – combined with our decades of practical engineering experience – to identify immediate problems, forecast future conditions, and develop maintenance and rehabilitation recommendations for our clients. We then communicate our findings and recommendations to our clients and work with them to implement sustainable, long-term solutions.

The IMS engineering team analyzes the data collected by our field crews using a suite of custom, continuously evolving tools. Our Project Engineers use these tools – combined with their own practical, real-world experience – to determine the best possible solutions for our clients. This requires a combination of technical skills and ever-improving engineering judgement as we craft the best possible solutions for our clients.
As a Project Engineer, you would conduct high-level pavement analyses, develop budget planning strategies in a variety of software environments, and ensure the quality of recommendations and reports that we provide to our clients. You would be the ultimate owner of projects under your management, and you would be the primary technical expert consulting with the client about their pavement management program.
