James A. Sewell & Associates, LLC (JAS) is committed to providing the best quality professional service in a cost-effective manner to all our clients. We are small community-oriented, having been founded over 100 years ago in the small northwest Washington community of Newport, and we count many small towns as our most satisfied clients. We have professional staff in Newport, Sandpoint, and Spokane and are able to draw upon the resources from each office on any project to complement the specific needs of your project.

Our company is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals with expertise in a wide variety of projects. JAS provides an array of services which include water, wastewater, and stormwater engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, land surveying, land use planning, geotechnical testing, construction inspection, and building inspection. Our professionals are licensed in the states of Washington and Idaho.

For each project entrusted to our care, the professionals we assemble, whether our own people or our outside professional associates include individuals with experience on similar projects who know the local area and have good working relations with the involved entities.

JAS has a lifetime history of relationships with private and municipal clients in smaller communities. This is not surprising, considering our Staff themselves reside in local, small neighborhoods. We appreciate the way of life our local communities offer, and strive to continue building strong relationships with them and provide a quality service that will aid in their success and sustainability.
