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.
