About Foresight Consulting

ForeSight Consulting LLC was founded in 2004 by Todd Bauer as a civil engineering company providing innovation in land surveying, land development, and landscape architecture. Todd saw a need in the Fort Wayne area for a civil engineering firm that was committed to the success of its clients and their projects. That need has been met on over 300 jobs by Todd and his dedicated team. In just a few years ForeSight has earned a reputation for their high-quality work and integrity.

Prior to establishing ForeSight Consulting LLC, Todd worked for a regional consulting engineering firm in Indianapolis and then served as a principal for a Fort Wayne area engineering and land-surveying firm. In starting his own company, Todd tapped into the boundless energy of an enthusiastic team of young professionals to bring fresh ideas and implementation to all aspects of land surveying, land development, and landscape architecture.

We strive to be an integral part of your project team, and fully incorporate a collaborative design approach to every project. Through an integrated design approach and with the input of each and every team member, we believe that the best possible solution to the client’s needs and requirements can be met.  To that end ForeSight continues to invest in our staff in to maintain a competitive advantage in the market place through an understanding of the issues faced by our clients.  Our staff annually participates in continuing education seminars, programs and educational functions to maintain a working knowledge of trends and issues impacting our clientele and their industries.  Through our involvement with local and state professional associations we expand our knowledge base and understanding of current trends to better serve our clients, and advise them of continuing changes in the marketplace.

It’s no coincidence that we’ve chosen Auguste Rodin’s sculpture “The Thinker” as our corporate image because we give thoughtful attention to every detail to ensure the success of our clients, their projects, and the project team.  The underlying principle within everything we do at ForeSight is to provide an unparalleled service based on quality, integrity and the dedication to the client.  It is our mission to create a better tomorrow with ForeSight, and we realize that everything we do, and every project we are involved with, directly impacts our community and the communities in which we work.  As such, we are dedicated to Designing Better Communities, and in that vane we continually incorporate the ideas of collaboration, sustainable design, and current best management practices into every project.  Our focus on the client, the success of their project, and the impact on the community of each and every project has lead to a solid reputation with both clients and local governing agencies alike.
