    I spent more than 28 years in the public sector and dealt with many engineering firms. The ones that were more successful than others were the ones that could identify the issues before hand and could come up with the appropriate solutions rather than asking the client to solve the problem for them. I’m proud to say, at PRIME, this is exactly what we do.
