Revolutionizing irrigation water engineering and management through whip-smart engineering, business hustle, and a love for the land.  At Hines we engineer Water First™.


Water is Expensive

Water is one of the top three costs in land development. Water security, scarcity and quality should guide project infrastructure planning. This is exactly how we start our projects.

Time is Precious

Your projects have deadlines, and time wasted is money squandered. We deliver projects efficiently and on time so that you can stay in the business of design and company building.

Cash is Limited

You can't argue with return on investment. We save our clients an average of 40% on upfront construction costs, keeping money in the bank or available for crucial investment.

You don't just buy our services, you buy our mission.

We're proud of the services we offer, but we find that services alone aren't enough. Without a mission that truly drives a business, services are left unchecked and don't improve over time. Our clients hire us again and again because we are guided by our incredible team and strong core values. See for yourself.
