Peloton Land Solutions is the creation of a team of professionals seeking to alter the civil engineering landscape, all revolving around one simple idea: GAIN GROUND
Gain Ground. It’s not just a tagline, it’s a way of life for our employees. It’s a way to express what we do differently and how we do it. To get a better understanding of the though process behind it, we asked Peloton’s three founders what “Gain Ground” means to them.

The vision, however, must be to move forward while doing our best and being our best so that we leave a legacy and create opportunity for others to carry that legacy forward.
For our clients we must be focused not only on the execution of projects, but creating value, doing more, earning more, gaining more for the benefit of their projects – both figuratively and literally. That’s what will set us apart from our competition.

Q: What does “Gain Ground” mean to you?
A: To me, “Gain Ground” conveys a few messages. First, Peloton is always striving to gain ground in
the market and expand our array of services to our existing clients and to new clients that we actively
pursue. Second, “Gain Ground” should take on an intimate meaning with our staff. In this profession, we
are technical ‘thinkers’ by nature. We tend to reach an apex in our technical development and rarely ask
ourselves “What’s next?” or “Is their more?”. There is always more! “Gain Ground” to our staff is when
we strive to break out of our ‘technical’ thinking and continue to develop new skills, business acumen,
and compliment other lines of business.
Q: What tone or feeling does “Gain Ground” express?
A: From a marketplace or client perspective it sets a positive tone. Internally to our staff, it is warm and fuzzy. The feeling that we want it to invoke to staff is that you have the ability to grow, learn and increase your value to Peloton and our clients.
Q: What story does “Gain Ground” tell to you?
A: The “Gain Ground” story for me personally is continuing to partner with our clients on executing projects all the while learning more about their business practices and how they define success.
