Sharing knowledge, inspiring leaders

My name is Brian Wagner, P.E. and I am glad you have visited this site.  My passion is helping others and I want to help you by sharing my knowledge and experience with you.


As a licensed Professional Engineer, I specialize in civil site design.  I have extensive experience in land development design and construction.  This work includes oversight and preparation of construction plans. 


I have worked both for small business and large corporate engineering firms as well as a couple of stints in the public sector.  My diverse experience in these different scenarios prepared me for my career and my current role as a professional engineer.  I am currently licensed in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York in Delaware, however, a majority of my experience was gained in Maryland engineering work.


In addition to civil engineering, I have spent time in Emergency 911 Communications, law enforcement corrections, and volunteer fire/rescue services including nearly 10 years as a search and rescue K9 Handler. 


Born and raised in Carroll County, Maryland, I call the mid-Atlantic region of the United States home. I am married to my wife of more than 10 years with two wonderful young children.  We live just outside of a small town in rural central Maryland.

“To continuously expand my knowledge to better the community and inspire individuals, so that we, collectively, continue to have a positive impact and advance the world we live in.

Wagner Brian Family

The Wagner Family

I believe that family is everything in this life. Without it, you are simply alone. I strongly encourage you to always keep that insight, not letting everything else in life interfere. Being a father and husband is truly the most important and one of the hardest jobs in the world. Bringing new life into this world has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. We can do it, we can succeed.


The best experiences of my life have been largely the result of having a family that I deeply cherish.  I look forward each day to experiencing the love and happiness we have created together.

My Professional Career

Professionally, I have worked on projects throughout Maryland, southern Pennsylvania, and even a few jobs in northern Virginia. Projects range from residential subdivisions with hundreds of lots to individual lot projects to schools, commercial and industrial sites, and everything in between.


Rising through the ranks of the civil engineering industry, I started as an intern out of a high school vocational drafting program.  I promoted to project manager and have lead projects multi-million dollar development projects that even included engineering design fees exceeding $500,000. 


Today, my focus is supporting and coaching staff while overseeing the preparation of high-quality land development construction plans. One notable industrial project was a 4.5-mile conveyor system connecting two quarry locations. 


My experience is diverse, resulting in a unique and valuable perspective on a lot of different topics.
