Head shot of CEO Steven Carleton Rani Engineering

We are pleased to announce that Rani Engineering and Progressive Consulting Engineers (PCE) have joined forces to become one unified company under the Rani Engineering name. With our combined experience and expertise, we are taking this exciting step towards becoming a full-service firm.

Rani Engineering is one of the first women-owned consulting firms in Minnesota, winning numerous industry and business awards. After directing the efforts of the company for 25 years, Susan Park Rani has transitioned out of ownership. Steven Carleton, the owner and president of PCE, will become the new leadership of Rani Engineering. Under the new ownership, Rani Engineering will remain a DBE and MBE and also become a Veteran-Owned Small Business.

Rani’s recent growth incited the opportunity to expand services, and we were pleased to unite with PCE because of their strong values and complementary services. PCE’s main services include structural engineering and utility design, which partner well with Rani’s services in civil engineering, land surveying, and rail signal engineering.

Together, our new team will be able to offer clients services in the following areas:

  • Roadway design (new, rehabilitation, reconstruction)
  • Site planning and design
  • LRT and freight rail track design
  • Rail signal design
