About Us

Serving Our Communities Since 1995

We are a team of dedicated civil engineers, surveyors, and land planners who help you bring your visions to life through extraordinary and dedicated work.

Our History

JBPro began more than 25 years ago when our President and co-founder, Jay Brown, felt the greater Gainesville area could be served by a new firm ready to provide outstanding engineering services. Since then, JBPro has expanded to provide surveying, planning, and construction services and is now one of the leading site development design and consulting firms in North-Central Florida. Entering our fourth decade of service, JBPro remains dedicated to our passion for client advocacy and community development.

The Latest Insights from JBPro

Valid Objections to a Change of Land Use

When dreaming of the next addition to your community, it can be exciting to envision how well a project will fit into the area around it. However, what may seem like a big hit to a developer could be stopped in its tracks when brought up against land use standards.

Land Use Planning and Ethics

With all of their qualifications, planners still face constant ethical dilemmas and must work hard to do the right thing. In honor of National Community Planning month, we wanted to talk about some of the concerns they face.
