thumbnail for Engineering design Consultants, D St, Lincoln, NeAs someone born and raised in Lincoln, I was so excited to find out about this all woman owned engineering company and their goals to revitalize the Everett Neighborhood; by helping companies who's hopes are to run their businesses out of the homes located there. Historic preservation, staying environmentally friendly and keeping utilities low and lowering crime by "presence" are the goals of this company; mentioned to me as I spoke to CEO Pamela Dingman after taking this picture of the business.
