about us

In the autumn of 2002, J2 Engineering and Environmental Design opened its doors to provide professional engineering and landscape architecture services in Arizona. J2 was founded on the philosophy that engineering and landscape architecture need to work in unison for a project to be both site sensitive and technically functional. Since that time J2 has grown to a staff of 30, serving clients throughout the southwest. J2’s founding partners, Jeff Holzmeister, PE, and Jeff Engelmann, RLA, have a combined experience of over 50 years, in the fields of hydraulic and water resource engineering, general civil engineering, landscape architecture, environmental design, and support for public involvement. J2’s reputation in the market has been solidified through ongoing professional relationships, innovative design, outstanding performance, and personal attention to our clients.

J2’s staff is very proud of the working relationships that we have developed with our clients. A key goal is to insure each client’s complete satisfaction – and we do. Our firm was founded on the principle that clients hire “people” not “firms”. This philosophy continues to prove its worth in the simple fact that J2’s reputation for completing projects on-time and on-budget, with award-winning results, is why 95% of our work continues to be for repeat clients.

In 2014, J2 launched a new area of expertise. Building upon the founding principles of innovation, design excellence, honesty, integrity and commitment, J2 has expanded to provide traffic engineering services to our clients.

J2’s Engineering Department specializes in general civil engineering with an emphasis on water resource engineering and traffic engineering. The Landscape Architecture Department specializes in master planning, park design, and construction observation for parks, recreation, open space, & trails projects. J2 is a minority-owned business enterprise and is a certified disadvantaged business enterprise in Arizona, Nevada, Kansas, and Missouri. J2 is also recognized as a Minority Business Enterprise by the National Minority Supplier Development Council and as adopted by the Grand Canyon Minority Supplier Development Council.
