About Our Company

In 2001 the principals of Mainelli Wagner & Associates, Inc. recognized the opportunity and need for civil engineering services focusing on Nebraska communities, developers, and government agencies.

With modest beginnings Mainelli Wagner & Associates, Inc. has developed into a one stop civil engineering company serving counties, cities, natural resource districts, the State of Nebraska, and developers.
