About Us

Furtado & Associates is a different kind of consulting firm. While we do provide innovative, high quality engineering, construction management, and land surveying services to improve public infrastructure, we go beyond that and use our services as tools to accomplish our vision: to be a positive force for Puget Sound communities, our clients, and our employees.

We are intentional in everything we do. We pursue projects that improve the lives of the communities we serve, helping build the infrastructure needed now and for future generations. We actively seek to understand our clients’ specific needs and deliver products and services that match their ambitions. Structured within a dynamic work environment, F&A facilitates staff connections in a partnership that maximizes individual and team potential and drives forward client-based solutions.

We practice active inclusion by purposefully fostering a workplace environment where people from all backgrounds and life experiences can thrive. We work hard and love what we do. Having fun is important! Our team arrives at their jobs energized, ready to work, and eager to learn from each other. Furtado & Associates will grow as our people grow in their careers and as new additions bring their contributions to the team.
Building America’s infrastructure since 1983: F&A was founded in 1983 as C.N. Lin and Associates, Inc. with fewer than 10 employees. The firm transitioned into Furtado & Associates in 2021, led by Adolph Furtado and Aeli Furtado until 2022 when Joshua Cheatham, current President/CEO purchased the firm.
