Terracon buys TAM Consultants to expand services

Acquisition will allow Terracon to serve Virginia and mid-Atlantic regions

|Dec 8|magazine5 min read

Terracon, the Kansas-based engineering consulting firm, has acquired TAM Consultants, as it looks to expand its services in the state of Virginia and mid-Atlantic region.

TAM Consultants serves public and private sector clients through structural engineering, building enclosure consulting, property condition assessments, forensic and investigative engineering, roof consulting, project management, and a variety of building testing services.

“TAM and Terracon share a commitment to not only outstanding technical expertise, but exceptional client service based on enduring relationships,” said Gayle Packer, Terracon president and CEO. 

“We’re excited to enhance our facilities services throughout Virginia and the mid-Atlantic region at a time when extending the service life and efficiency of existing buildings is top of mind for many of our clients.”

All TAM employees will immediately become part of Terracon, supporting clients from its three Virginia locations, the companies say. The firm will continue to operate locally as TAM Consultants, Inc, A Terracon Company, with clients expected to find the transition seamless, the statement adds.

“Becoming part of Terracon is an exciting next step in TAM’s mission to continue to provide outstanding service to our clients,” says Timothy Mills, P.E., TAM founder and CEO. “This merger allows TAM to bring an even broader range of consulting engineering services to our clients and the region, drawing on Terracon’s national presence and resources, and offers new career development opportunities for our team.”

The new acquisition is supported by Terracon’s existing offices in Virginia, North Carolina, the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, and others. 

TAM joins two other recent Terracon acquisitions: Skelly and Loy of Harrisburg, Pa., in 2020 and GeoConcepts of Ashburn, Va., in 2017.

Terracon is an employee-owned consulting engineering firm with more than 5,000 employees providing environmental, facilities, geotechnical, and materials services from more than 150 offices, with services available across all 50 of the United States. 

Additionally, it partners with US clients to serve their international needs. Established in 1965, Terracon is a multi-discipline firm specialising in environmental, facilities, geotechnical and materials services.
