About Us

Residents participate in the public hearing for the North Split Interchange Reconstruction Project in downtown Indianapolis in August 2020

Our Approach

Infrastructure impacts everyone. From social media to public meetings to news conferences, we target the masses. While we can’t guarantee everyone will support your project, we can help ensure residents are informed.

As a women-owned business, we can help you reach your WBE/DBE goals while making your job easier. Compass is certified as a Women-Owned and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise by the State of Indiana and a Women-Owned Business by the City of Indianapolis.

Public Outreach During the Pandemic

The development and construction of major infrastructure projects has not slowed down during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, they’ve barely been affected.

Ensuring a public involvement plan is in place that balances both virtual outreach opportunities and in-person meetings is essential. We’ve planned nearly 20 virtual and/or in-person meetings in 2020 and can advise on how to select the best technology, how to abide to health guidelines and how to make sure all audiences have ample opportunities to provide feedback.
