Terracon and Stafford Join Together to Expand Facilities Engineering Division

OLATHE, Kan. — Terracon Consultants, Inc. is pleased to announce the acquisition of Stafford Consulting Engineers, a firm providing extensive consulting engineering services related to building envelope systems, including commercial roofing and waterproofing systems. Stafford is headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., with offices in Raleigh, N.C., and Jacksonville, Fla.

“Stafford has an impressive portfolio of successful projects involving new and existing structures,” said David Gaboury, P.E., president and CEO of Terracon.  “They are real experts in their field. Joining with Stafford allows Terracon to expand our Facilities Engineering Division and services to local and national clients.”

Stafford was established in 1964 with the mission of providing engineering guidance for roofing and waterproofing systems. Services include: design of new or replacement roofing and waterproofing systems; roof asset management plans; construction monitoring; forensic investigations; plan and specification consultation; and additional services such as project management, general consultation and QA/QC inspections. Clients include health care, industrial, government, schools, universities, architecture, engineering and construction firms.

“Stafford Consulting Engineers is one of the few engineering firms in the country devoted exclusively to building envelope systems, “ said Stuart Sutton, P.E., RRC, president of Stafford. “With our experience, and the significantly greater resources of Terracon, this is a tremendous opportunity to help our clients achieve their goals.”

Stafford will continue to operate as Stafford Consulting Engineers. The firm’s clients will continue to work with the same engineers and technicians, while benefiting from the resources Terracon offers.
