The company, whose corporate offices are in St. Louis, expanded its operations in 2010 to Memphis. It also has offices in Fairview Heights, Ill., and Overland Park, Kan.
President and CEO Ed Alizadeh, P.E., J.D., says the decision to open these new offices was based upon the success of the company’s Memphis operations, the region’s opportunities and the demand for specialized geotechnical and construction materials testing services.
“We made this decision after careful deliberation about the region and its competitive landscape. The Mid-South economy continues to get stronger, and we see great potential for our continued growth in conjunction with it. We have the people, equipment and technology that enable us to provide traditional geotechnical and environmental consulting services as well as specialized services such as seismic testing, geophysics, deep foundation testing and cone penetration testing (CPT).”
The new Jonesboro office is already involved with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department’s Route 63 from Blackrock to Portia project, as well as a project on the Craighead Forest Park Trail in Jonesboro. The office, located in the Arkansas State University Delta Center for Economic Development, is at 5501 Kreuger Dr, Suite 110, Jonesboro, AR 72401.
The Oxford office is also busy with several projects, including work with the Baptist Memorial Hospital North Mississippi and the University of Mississippi Vaught-Hemingway Stadium South End Zone Upgrades. Its address is 1101 Harlan Drive, Oxford, MS 38655.
“For more than 30 years, our company has been focused on serving our clients well. We continually look for ways to expand geographically that will allow us to bring more value to our clients. Establishing these two new offices accomplishes this objective.” said Alizadeh.
