Geotechnology Company Expansion Continues:
One of the goals of Geotechnology’s 5-year strategic expansion plan has been to expand our reach geographically and to do so in a way that will provide a benefit to our clients. September 17th marked the five-year anniversary of our expansion into the mid-south region with the acquisition of Hall, Blake & Associates (HBA). Hall, Blake & Associates was founded in 1979 in Memphis, Tennessee, has established an excellent reputation providing geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing and drilling services.
By combining forces with Geotechnology, Inc., HBA is now able to provide their clients with increased services due to additional equipment and staff experienced in environmental, geophysical and non-destructive testing capabilities. For those clients associated with our other offices, the merger infused an already talented staff with 26 additional engineers, geologists, drilling, laboratory and field staff along with HBA’s laboratory and other equipment.
The new company expansion and acquisition was finalized in 2010 and in 2013 the office moved to its current location at 3312 Winbrook Drive in Memphis. Since the acquisition, our Memphis office has been involved with a variety of landmark projects including the Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid, Shelby Farms Park with its Patriot Lake Expansion, Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford, and the newly opened I-240 flyovers.
It has been a pleasure to be a part of these regional projects. We look forward to continuing to provide you with our services for any of your future project needs.
September 17th also marked the one month anniversary of our significant expansion to the east. Geotechnology and Thelen Associates came together bringing four new offices and over 100 additional staff to the Geotechnology team. You can learn more about the Thelen Associates acquisition at our website: geotechnology.com. We appreciate your continued trust and remain interested in growing our business to better serve our expanding client base throughout the Midwest and Mid-South.
