Absolute Engineering, LLC was formed in October of 2002 by Mitch Crowe and is located in Kennewick, Washington. |E| was created to better serve the public, private, and government sectors. We serve the entire Pacific Northwest and specialize in serving the remote areas of Southwest Washington, Southeast and Central Oregon, and Idaho. We are currently on the Oregon University System list of approved engineers. We have also branched out nationally by serving Illinois, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Nevada, and Louisiana.

Our personnel bring with them vast experience in many different areas of engineering which shows in the review of the resume section. With Mitch, additional office personnel include Bob DePoe (Construction Manager), Jeff Horlacher (Mechanical Designer), and Jensen Horlacher (Drafter). Mitch Crowe is a licensed Professional Engineer in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nevada, Louisiana, and Arkansas.

Both Mitch and Bob DePoe have contractor experience. They worked at Foster Sheet Metal, then opened Blue Sage Corporation. During their time at Blue Sage, they received letters of recommendation from Chevron Chemical for their work during Chevron's annual shutdowns. In addition to Bob's construction experience, he also has experience as a Washington State Boiler Inspector and many years as an Owner's representative in elementary, secondary and higher education facilities.

Our hands-on construction experience gives us an edge in designing HVAC systems and other mechanical and electrical systems that make sense to the contractor. When the contractor understands the documents and what is required of them, then the price and quality reflects that. We work very well with many local contractors because of our experience. Furthermore, our construction experience gives us the edge in commissioning and air balance of HVAC and Mechanical Systems.

We provide complete design services ranging from strictly engineering to only providing construction administration and on many projects we provide both. As part of our overall package, we have the capabilities to provide scheduling, estimating, construction administration, project closeout, and bidding. Another client requested service is complete design coordination where Absolute Engineering is the lead project manager of the design team. This innovative service came about due to the 24+ years of experience in the construction and engineering trade that Mitch has, providing engineering, project management, and actual field construction. Absolute Engineering also has a strong network with other quality architectural and engineering firms which enables us to provide a complete plan and specification package ready for bid and/or construction.
