Matis Warfield, Inc. is a consulting engineering firm specializing in the planning and design of commercial, institutional, industrial and residential land development projects. Our clients are predominantly from the private development industry.  Although we provide services throughout Maryland, our work is primarily focused on land development projects located in the Baltimore Metropolitan area.


Our strategy for success has been to concentrate on the engineering skills which we do best and to work in a collaborate effort with the project development team. We have developed our practice based on the fundamental principles of:


  • Recognizing that clients are a prerequisite to success for our business.

  • Valuing the trust and faith our clients demonstrate by relying on us to provide solutions.

  • Utilizing the depth of our experience to provide innovative but practical design solutions for each unique development project.

  • Understanding the complexity of jurisdictional requirements and processes, and recognizing their effect on our clients’ goals.

  • Adapting to, rather than reacting to, development industry changes. 

  • Working with Industry Groups and Jurisdictions to provide input into industry changes and adapting to the changes rather than reacting to them.


As a direct result of our dedication to these principles we have been privileged to maintain long term relationships with many clients.



Our staff’s mission is to provide outstanding customer service, a quality product, and above all, build long-standing relationships with our clients.

Our staff is comprised of a highly motivated group consisting of engineers and designers. Our team strives to be proactive and client responsive.  We understand that our clients are constantly challenged with meeting project goals within a dynamic and time sensitive environment. Our dedication and work ethic make our services an invaluable asset to our clients who depend on our proven leadership and performance.

Our staff is active in various professional organizations including the Baltimore County Engineers Association, the Maryland Society of Professional Engineers, and the Home Builders Association of Maryland.


We believe our firm’s success is largely due to the experience and professionalism of our principals.  All of Matis Warfield’s principals have been with the company for more than a decade, providing a stable and reputable leadership core.
