Week 1 & 2: Cheers to 50 Years, A Story of Transformation!
Updated: Mar 9
Please join us for a journey through our evolution as we celebrate our 50th year! Each week we will be adding a post to take you through the journey of our evolution. To start the journey jump to the bottom of this blog.
Fred Gray was the founder of our engineering firm in 1973. Fred worked hard to provide efficient designs that would work best for the project and reduce construction cost. He did not gauge his time on the fee but on the project itself. He believed in properly detailing the structural work well beyond what the industry standard was at the time.
The firm has carried Fred's philosophy and developed it further. We work closely with the client to ensure the appropriate design is achieved. We ensure the contract documents are well detailed to minimize confusion during construction.
The core values this firm was founded on 50 years ago remain the cornerstone and in many ways the catalyst for our success and growth today.
While we have been known by different names over the last 50 years, we have always kept our focus on helping people solve complex structures.
As an organization, we have gone through three distinct phases of evolution:
Partnership; and now
We’ve had an immensely successful run these last 29 years under the name Gray & Fick and have now come to a significant milestone in our 50th anniversary year. To celebrate this success, we felt it was appropriate to shed our skin and re-emerge as the more mature medium-sized structural engineering firm we are today.
Over the next 7 weeks, we are excited to take you on a journey through our evolution, starting from its establishment in 1973 up until the present day. This will be a story of growth, transformation, and progress and we hope you will gain a deeper understanding of who we are and what we stand for.
