Steve Osborne, Construction Manager, Cobalt Commercial Construction, LLC

“Cobalt Commercial Construction has worked with Highland Engineering on multiple projects over the last several years, and were integral to our success in converting existing structures into Life Storage facilities in Glenview, Naperville, Barrington and LaGrange, Illinois. The staff at Highland Engineering were very responsive and worked with us closely to repurpose the buildings with structural modifications that did not impact the overall design of our layouts. Highland’s work was consistent throughout all phases of the process and they worked well with other project design professionals which enabled timely progress. I recommend Highland Engineering to anyone needing flexible and effective engineering solutions.”


Nate Gish, Sales Manager, Northfield, an Oldcastle company

They deliver quick turn-around, outstanding client support and cost effective solutions that are straightforward and match proposal quantities, which are hot buttons in my industry. Partnering with Highland Engineering has made it easier for me to prospect, identify, close and ship over 20 jobs this year. I look forward to my next project with Highland Engineering.”
