Engineering innovation since 1975

Since 1975 Shoemaker & Haaland has provided design leadership in innovative structural, civil, site design and surveying. Our staff includes over 40 professionals practicing in 20 states and 4 Canadian provinces with expertise in structural engineering, civil engineering, and surveying. Our success is derived from an intrinsic talent to integrate diverse professional disciplines into a cohesive design team to successfully meet the unique challenges of each project in imaginative, artistic, and sustainable ways.

Shoemaker & Haaland is a values based, employee-owned company. Employees become an ESOP stockholder once employment requirements are met.


Shoemaker & Haaland has been in business promoting quality design services since 1975 when Glenn D. Shoemaker, P.E. founded the company in Coralville, Iowa. In 1976, Vern H. Haaland, P.E., L.S. joined the firm and opened our Cedar Rapids office and the name was changed to Shoemaker & Haaland Professional Engineers. In 1986, the Krebill Engineering Company was purchased and the Keokuk branch office was established.


We are in business to develop and nurture a multidisciplinary design team of professional, technical and support staff who work together in a collegial environment to create excellent design solutions for our clients.


Our vision is to be a focused and entrepreneurial engineering services firm where people are proud to come to work every day, and where clients continue to bring their most complex challenges because they know we will give them innovative, attractive, environmentally sensitive and cost-effective design solutions.


These five values underlie our commitment to providing the highest level of quality and service for those we are honored to call our clients, and creating the most positive work experience possible with those we are proud to call our associates.

We are committed to being completely honest with ourselves and with our clients, and to being totally reliable in fulfilling our commitments to each other and to those we serve.
We are committed to continuous learning and improvement in our professional knowledge and leadership skills, and to cultivating relationships that are based on mutual respect and support.
We are committed to fostering an inspirational environment with positive attitudes, optimistic expectations, and where our passion is reflected in the fun we have working together.
