The Firm


For 53 years, Greenville, South Carolina based Britt, Peters and Associates has been a leader in civil and structural engineering. We've helped plan, design and project-manage thousands of challenging projects for clients with stringent budget, schedule and quality requirements. Our multidisciplinary staff works collaboratively with clients on a local, regional and national basis across a variety of industries.

With roots tracing to 1968, today’s Britt, Peters and Associates was formally established in 1993. It is owned and operated by six principals – Mark Peters, John Connelly, Steven Dover, David Impson, Bret Underwood, and Seth Robertson – all professional engineers, and all sharing the same philosophy. We take a business perspective to engineering solutions, treating every dollar as if it were our own and we do so with a service ethic that clients often tell us is distinctive, enjoyable and refreshing.
