Customer Experiences

Western Heritage Consulting & Engineering and Ryan Altenburg always go the extra mile to help a client.  Their high quality service, flexibility and willingness to adjust to our needs are superior. Kim Schonek

The Nature Conservancy

We asked Ryan Altenburg to come look at a property that our company had purchased and help us with an idea. We had a vision to be able to irrigate EVERYTHING below our irrigation ditch, approximately 100 acres of a multi use facility. From hay ground to 17 acres of turf grass, landscape and a domestic water system.  We had a unique situation to be able to “start over” and build a very high quality system. Ryan designed a state of the art system that maintained simplicity and incorporated gravity and pumped irrigation simultaneously. He did it, we can get everything wet! All our risers are below grade so the place looks very tidy! 
Also he was able to help us design a water system utilizing multiple wells for our drinking water, domestic use and fire suppression to multiple buildings around the ranch.
Thanks for fulfilling the vision.
Well done!

It was important to us that there was adequate outreach and coordination with the landowners and NRCS offices, and this was accomplished very well! The communication between all parties was excellent, and the final designs submitted were very well done!
