About Us

The Ross, France & Ratliff Difference.

Ross, France and Ratliff, Ltd. was founded in 1962 by Charles E. Ross and Joe H. France. Since that beginning, our Manassas-based Northern Virginia civil engineering and land surveying firm has provided award-winning services to commercial, industrial, municipal, educational, and residential clients.

Bigger for us isn’t better. We’ve purposely remained relatively small to concentrate our efforts and provide an unmatched level of service. In fact, the Principals at Ross, France and Ratliff, Ltd. are actively involved in our surveying and engineering design projects on a daily basis.

Our expertise includes seasoned Virginia Licensed Professional Engineers with production and supervisory experience, veteran Virginia Licensed Land Surveyors, CAD technicians, and survey crews. Combining decades of experience with state-of-the-art field survey and design technology, we’re able to produce finished projects on time, on target, and within budget.
