V3 Companies

V3 Companies can be described in many ways: Most simply, we are a multidisciplinary firm offering civil engineering, contracting, environmental, planning and surveying services. But that tells only a small piece of our story. We’re frequently asked, “What does ‘V3’ stand for?” … and the answer often surprises people. V3 represents an acronym for three Latin words – “Visio,” “Vertere,” “Virtute” or “The Vision to Transform with Excellence” – a statement of the aspirations we have for the growth of our employees, our service to our clients and the impact we have in our communities.
